Lovely Autumn stroll

Beautiful place to go to breath fresh air amongst trees, dirt roads and a very nice lake. The small cafeteria in the middle of the park has good coffee and cold beer!

I do love this park. I enjoy running there. There are also places where you can enjoy a drink or a snack during the summer!

Try to walk from the Castello towards the Arco, get a drink in the center of the park, enjoy the day and the view, later you can sit next to the Arco Della Pace and admire the arch and walk back or take a tram.

Specially when the weather is sunny another place that could not be missed in Milano. It is not so far from Duomo. We want to just walk around the parc, we loved there and more then hour left. Many kind of ducks are swimming in small lake and colours of leaves are very impressive for the ambiance.

Enjoy the sunshine in Milan by visiting Parco Sempione right behind the Castello. You do not have the feeling you are in the middle of the city! It is a spacious park which is well taken care of with multiple options to buy a snack, food and drinks. Definately worth a visit on a nice day in Milan to rest... More

take the afternoon here, it reminds me a little of the Gardens of Versailles, with a few more people, and in the heart of the city. Oh and stop in at the central pavillion on the weekend and take in the locals dancing to Chamber music...and probably other genres too. Very liberating.

The Parco Sempione is the largest green space in Central Milano so I guess it acts as the city's lungs. It is large, but not so large as New York's Central Park. It has a number of cafes and other attractions including children's playgrounds. It is bordered by the Castello Sfozesca to the south and the Arco della Pace at... More

If you had a chance to visit London's St.James Park, so there's nothing to see here, but if you didn't you should come and see the green trees and have a picnic there.

Our hotel was close to this park so we got to walk through it every day and loved going through it. It is a lovely park and definitely worth a visit.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
