  • In the Sforzesco Castle museums. Castle is also impressive, but many attractions in the Museum of fine arts. Main is Michelangelo's Pietà statue. You can see many religious paintings and murals.

  • I enjoy art galleries. This gallery is not huge but has some really nice paintings, I especially enjoyed paintings by Canaletto. Look out for the unusual trompe l'oeil by Filippo abbiati, painted in t...  more »
  • Keep the surprises at the Castello Sforzesco; the art gallery contains masterpieces (but also you, like an amazing painting of Mantegna that alone worth the visit ...) but it's so well made as environments and exposure you impression of approaching to art much more than in other museums maybe more famous. To go back and back again.

  • Best place I ever visit, Very beautiful architecture, Clean atmosphere and nice atmosphere This place is one of the best residence of the premier of any country if you compare. The garden is awesome and worth to visit it's amazing that just for one person they arranged and built such a huge building or almost a monument. Anyway it's very good for one visit.
  • Beautiful castle with beautiful interior and exterior design. They have huge market on front of it. It was open on Thursday afternoon. I am not sure if it is open other days.
  • It is pretty impressive fortress built in the center of Milano only few minutes walk from the Duomo and the main Gallery. It is also connected to the park where many find a place to rest or to do some sports. Inside there are several museums, visits are possible with or without guide, from the exterior I found most interesting the towers
  • The castle was an unexpected surprise in Milan. No entrance fee is needed to see the castle but I cannot say the same for the museums inside. Really worth visiting.
  • The castle complex holds several small museums - ancient sculptures, medieval art, furniture museum etc. A part of the castle also has temporary gallery for different Renaissance painters. Worth spending half a day. The is also a restaurant with good food inside the complex.
