Castello Sforzesco houses nothing less than 9 different museums. If you get in at the ticket office you will go through most of them on a circular route, without having to leave the building. Only the two archaeological museums and the Pietá Rondanini museum have...More

The impressive castle itself, the grounds, the museum, the surrounding park - all well worth spending half a day for! The only unfortunate thing was that the 'Leonardo da Vinci' wing was closed for restoration - check this out before you visit to avoid being...More

You should visit this beautiful castle...But there is nothing to see there apart from the courtyard...I would be much better if you could visit the inside and the towers...Finally It is free

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.

Extensive works carried out on the castle in 2012 have really allowed the architecture to shine. The castle is free to walk around and explore, you pay only for the museum entry, I believe it was 5 euros. Works by Michaelangelo are on display. The...More

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

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.
