  • 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.

  • Beautiful, excellent place. Well preserved, nicely maintained castle with a view to die for. Full of history not just for the archeology buffs. Excellent hikes, restaurants, photo opportunities nearby. Although possibly not the most famous in Italy still well worth a visit. Best if/when weather is cooperating.
  • Sforzesco Castle is an amazing structure - a vast medieval fortress with huge walls and towers set in extensive grounds. It is a truly wonderful place worth placing high on your list of places to visit whilst in Milan. Inside you can visit the museum and art gallery, and see works my Michelangelo.
  • One of the largest fortresses in Europe. Located centrally. Some great exhibitions are held here so you may be lucky to see more that you pay for. Heavily and obviously renovated by retaining its character. Outside the castle you may hire horse-drawn carriage.
  • Beautiful place to visit. The huge medieval walls are amazing. Just be careful with the guys "offering" some kind of bracelet, it's a very common scam in Europe. Other than that the place is breathtaking.
  • Great Place if you want to have a various historical experiences of the italian culture, includes 6 museums that cover most of the artistic aspects, helpful staff too. Michael Angelo Museum is a small but a must-see place. You might get lost though if you are not with a guide.
