One of the most iconic and beautiful monuments in Milan. Built in the 15th century, by Ludovico Sforza, the Duke of Milan it now hosts several art collections and the city's museums. Due to its size I had to see it only 4 hours, however...More

Castello Sforzesco is an impressive castle. We enjoyed walking around the campus. We didn’t enter the museums there. If you are near, you should have a quick visit.

Collection of museums. Could be more user-friendly with better signage. FREE! Medieval art and Renaissance paintings are in the collection. Also decorative art like furniture.

If you’re interested in architecture and history, this is definitely the place for you, plenty museums to choose from, and at very good prices. So much to see, and beautiful park at the back entrance of the castle.

The Castello Sforzesco is well served by public transport: there is a metro station a couple of hundred metres from the castle entrance. The grounds can be visited for free, and the impressive architecture of this great Renaissance fortress enjoyed. Inside, not one but five...More

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

The official website should tell you for sure but I would say it probably is open. You can spend a day here as there’s a lot to see and make sure you don’t miss the Michelangelo as I believe it closes earlier. I think it’s... More

Do not book any tour! Don't waste your money: Milano is very easy to visit just walking (it's smaller than Singapore) and all the main interesting historical place are in the city center. Just book a ticket for Leonardo's... More

Hello. Nope, I didn't see any. I think it will be better if you can leave it in the hotel or in the train stn. If you are looking to get the bus tour, you may ask the guide.
