Castello Sforzesco is very impressive and imposing from the outside. It dominates from quite a distance away. The courtyard is also very nice. But, not much else to see to be honest inside. The museums are a bit of a mismatch of subjects. Definitely worth...More

So much to see inside - I hope these photos will cause you to want to visit. Many placards had English translations and the descriptions are good.

We were with a guide and yet this tour is on the grounds and not that informative. Certainly it’s worth a visit but even with narration I didn’t get that much out of this particular castle.

Simple castle in the middle of the city, the park is nice. You have the feeling you are not in the city anymore. unfortunately we cant go up the walls of the castle which would have been more interesting, We went also in the museums...More

Entrance to the castle is free, but not to the museums inside. What I really liked about it was the descriptions of the history of the castle spread around the open areas, both in Italian and in English. The castle itself is impressive with large...More

A must see in Milan. If you are just out for a nice walk then it’s all free at the castle and surrounding park, but there are museums to see also. Served by a Metro station but only a short walk to central Milan.

The museums are underappreciated and really extensive with some fantastic pieces from both antiquity and Renaissance times. Please spend some time in them. Here are my other tips: - there's no way to access the battlements or "inside the castle" (aside from the museums) except...More

The Castello is a must see and then in the other side of the fountain you can find the Arch of Peace at the end of the garden

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.
