  • From the piazza Ducale leads to the Visconti Castle, now partially restored than when I visited I years ago, although much remains to be done. You rise to it by steps, but there was a climb even for horses. The architectural construction of the Castello Visconteo-Sforzesco is considered one of Europe's largest fortified complexes. Actually looks like a collection of buildings and from a guide I learned that "occupies an area of over 70 thousand square meters, of which 25 thousand of covers, which should be added the 36 thousand square meters of courtyard. May contain twice the Buckingham Palace, the basilica of Saint Peter three times and six times the Duomo di Milano ". I brought the quote to attest the impressiveness of this monumental complex. Among other things it is important to remember that not only was born as a fortification, then for Defense, but also as a prestigious Castle, home of representation, where courtiers were delighted and relaxed. Although we should bring it back to its former glory (but at what cost?) I find that the whole complex is an artwork to visit because it draws a period, Renaissance Italy, where he met a great artistic season.

  • An impressive plant, which is still relatively well preserved, and at the time with the help of EU funds on a more appropriate quality standard is brought. Unfortunately, there are a few ways (except from the outside in the spacious courtyard) to visit its certainly interesting "innards" of the Castello.

  • This is a big castle with a lot of museums inside. They are ancient to modern art. There is also a nice garden outside which is beautifull to visit during good weather.
  • super nice place. also the museum is very cheap like 5€ and you can see everything! go there when the sun is shining :)
  • This place is huge! I didn't expect to spend 3 hours but just walking around takes a fair chunk. Lots to see here: Michelangelo's older Pieta and plenty of other museums. Ticket is cheap and covers everything. Make a plan coz you might get lost otherwise. Some of the exhibits are huge and I found myself to be the only person in places. That tell you the scale of this popular place. Definitely worth checking out.
  • Nice castle with some interesting expositions. Worth seeing mostly for the Michelangelo's Pieta. Admission is quite cheap.
  • A very nice castle with a great park. Perfect for walks, riding bikes and picnics. It is free to roam around the castle grounds, but to visit the museums you must pay. Note that on mondays, all museums are closed. There's also an aquarium at the right side of the park, and a lovely arch at the very back of the park. I had a great experience here. Would love to come back one day.
