The castle is kind of off the beaten path, but using the subway and bus system, it is easy to get to. The castle itself is good enough to view, but you can also visit a museum inside as well. There are signs on the outside that give you the history lesson of the family who built the castle and... More

The visit to the castello was worth it for the beauty and serenity of the place. Taking a walk inside the quarters was very calming and peaceful. There is a museum inside the castello but we did not see it.

Originally a Visconty fortress became a home for Sforza dynasty. Today there are seven museums in this place.

The most interesting piece that i saw was mummy. Yes, its a real deal. Spend 2 hours there and continue with beautiful park near by. Autumn colors were amazing especially if you don't have seasons where you live.

This is just a relaxing walk no matter how you do it. You can enjoy an evening walk whether you are going to or coming from the Duomo. It is a well lit park with nice trails and other attractions. You should definitely take a walk through this park if you have a chance. In addition, it appears that this... More

Besides Micheangelo's Pietà so many more things to see. Especially enjoyed the design section. Also liked the setting and being able to take photos.

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.
