The statue inside of Castello Sforzesco which attracts both tourists and locals. It is a major people watching location.
The castello was an old fort protecting the city. It now houses a number of museums, and has large gardens in the back.
After a long day of walking around the Castle Sforzesca, join the masses cooling their feet in the fountain out front. The water is refreshing and not that dirty, so whip off your socks and relax!
Don't miss this room in the Castle! The ceiling is beautifully painted and credited to Leonardo da Vinci, who for many years benefitted from the patronage of the Sforza family.
An old fort now converted to a museum.
A short walk from the Duomo along a street lined with shopping and restuarants.
There is a nice park behind the Castello.
If you wouldn't have seen the name of the sculptor, you wouldn't believe it.
The Pieta Rondanini is the last sculpture Michelangelo was working on before his death and it's only completed for 20 %
One of the most famous, world famous in fact, statues is the one of Gaston de Foix, beautifully carved with lots of reliefs
Nice that you don't have to pay to walk around.
When you want to go inside one of the musea, then you have to pay.
First, a view from the outside
Interesting and shocking place. Witnessed some youths smoking grass on the grass (pardon the pun) and carabinieri chasing after them.
Be sure to get there before 7 pm, because then the gardens close.
This is right after you get through the main gate.
It was a cool monument type structure to visit. It was free and you could walk everywhere!
Something to see if you are on a budget
It is beautiful and worth a picture! The Castle is very cool and kind of rustic; like you went back in time!:):)
Inside of the castle you can a visit a big exposition and museum about milan and italian history.....and it doesn´t cost a cent. entrance free.
Bulit in 1450, it´s one of the most importants tourists places in Milan. Go through it and spent some beutiful moments sitting in the sun in Parco Sempione.
This castello, which is now a museum used to be a castle and was later turned into army barracks (1525)
