Top ways to experience Castello Sforzesco
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Had a quick stop in the Parco Sempione before going to the Castle. Simple but very very nice!
Perfect for a quick break before heading to Duomo!

It was a nice day and we enjoyed seeing the castle. I had read about the museums but we were in a crunch for time so we walked through Parco Sempione (very nice large park) to the Arco della Pace (looks like Berlin's Brandenburg gate). Had a great meal near there.

It is interesting to see how much this differs to UK castles. It's also amazing how much you can see for free. There are a lot of different museums that you can pay to enter. I did not visit any of these.
Behind the castle you enter Parc Sempione which is also a lovely place to visit

Lots of various types of art, collected over many years, and kept in an attractive (but not ornate) historical building. I think the most significant piece might be Michelangelo's unfinished last work.

This is yet another awesome place to visit in Milan, there are museums inside for you to visit but you don't have to do that, just walk in and around the castle for its magnificent views, the colossal building shows signs of original and rebuilt parts over the centuries but is from every angle impressive and massive, the park around it is also the perfect place to rest if you 've been walking around the city the whole day.

Big castle in centre Milan, easy to reach by metro or by foot. It's nice to see inside and outside, very well kept and with information table about the castle's history and art works inside

The Renaissance palace, built by the Sforza family, is very monumental and beautiful. There were crowds of people during our visit. I think there are some museums in the palace itself, but I didn't visit them.

I thing it’s the worst personal that I ever seen in my life. They refuse to speak in English and ordered every tourist to understand Italian. They are very rude and disrespectful with clients. They don’t let people take pictures with them and the expositions.

Il castello (the castle) and il parco (the main park in Milan) don't miss them . At half a mile from the Duomo di Milano it's a must go there .
