Huge Medieval-Renaissance fortress with historical museums & art by da Vinci and Michelangelo.
Strolling along the magnificent Via Dante you will get to the castle of Milan. This spectacular medieval building hosts a history museum and a large park.
Located not far from the Duomo, Milan’s Castello Sforzesco – built in the 15th century by Duke Francesco Sforza – was once one of the largest citadels in Europe. Today, it houses various museums and numerous important artworks and relics, but it is also nice to wander through its courtyards and…
Il Castello Sforzesco è una fortificazione che sorge a Milano poco fuori il centro storico della città. Fu eretto nel XV secolo da Francesco Sforza, divenuto da poco Duca di Milano, sui resti di una precedente fortificazione medievale risalente al XIV secolo nota come Castello di Porta Giovia.
Lovely work of art with a beautiful court yard, and a museum dedicated to the works of Leonardo da Vinci.
Un must per ogni turista. Bellissimo e tutto da scoprire. Ottimo bar interno, ottimi i panini dei venditori ambulanti intorno al Castello. Ospita la Mostra di Leonardo.

“The symbol of the city is located on Piazza del Duomo, the historic center and best starting point for a stay in Milan. Started in 1386, the construction of Milan Cathedral took nearly 500 years. It was finished under the order of Napoleon Bonaparte who absolutely wanted to be crowned as king of Italy there. This architectural wonder is the third largest cathedral in the world, after St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rome and the Cathedral of Seville. From the outside, you can admire its facade entirely made of perfectly carved stones. The 2.000 white marble statues and 136 arrows makes the whole thing super impressive! When seeing it, you clearly understand why it’s nicknamed “the marble hedgehog”. The interior is also worth a visit, with its 5 sumptuous naves and 52 columns, each representing a week of the year. You can also admire sarcophagi and tombs of several archbishops, as well as a crucifix made by the master Leonardo Da Vinci himself! But the highlight of the visit is the possibility to go on the terrace of the Cathedral. From up there, the view of Milan is breathtaking! You can choose to go there either by stairs or elevator, the second option being of course a bit more expensive.”

“Just behind the Sforza castle, you will find the green lung of the city. The Parco Sempione (Simplon Park in english) is the largest public park in Milan and a perfect place to rest a bit. Some buildings worth seeing while strolling around: The Civic Aquarium of Milan, and its nice architecture. The visit isn’t really worth it, as it’s quite small The Triennale, highlighting the arts and Italian architecture The Arena Civica, a multi-purpose stadium dating from 1807, where sport events are held The Arco della Pace, the triumphal arch of Milan, built to celebrate peace. I loved the architecture! ”

“The Pinacoteca di Brera (“Brera Art Gallery” in English) houses one of the most important art collection in Italy. It’s located in the Palazzo Brera, built on a former monastery. At the time, monks were the first to make it a cultural center with a school, an astronomical observatory and a library. Since then, the collection of the Art Gallery just kept growing. Today, the works are exhibited in about forty rooms and are arranged in chronological order, according to the art technique used. Amongst the most famous masterpieces, you can admire Raphael’s ”The Marriage of the Virgin” or Caravaggio’s ”Last Supper to Emmaus””
