We saw this beautiful statue a couple of times. The first time was on our way to the Castello Sforzesco. In fact we could see the castle from this area of the statue. A great viewing point too! We also passed by this point again...More

This is a monument for an important man. Giuseppe Garibaldi was one of the main leaders of Italy's union. For his significant task and his great leadership, he deserved to be remembered for further generations.

Garibaldi was one of the major figures leading to the unification of Italy in the mid 1800's. This impressive monument commemorates Garibaldi and can be seen on the way to and from Sforza castle at the end of Via Dante.

This monument cannot be missed if you visiting Sforza Castle as it stands near the fountain that is in front of the castle. It is a monument to one of the major figures responsible for the unification of Italy in the 1860's and 70's

Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where
tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty
reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca
(galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and
Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior
design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to
