You will get tired of looking at paintings, I think. Tuesday afternoons are free but you still need to pick up a ticket otherwise you will climb the 5 flights of stairs only to be sent back down again to get a ticket. Michelangelo's sculpture is worth taking a look at. Read about it before you go so that you... More

Ancient building is very impressive, bringing the visitor in an ancient and fascinating period. The visit does not cost money, but if you enter the museum. Beautiful landscaping, comfortable walking trails and vast space.

The castle is kind of off the beaten path, but using the subway and bus system, it is easy to get to. The castle itself is good enough to view, but you can also visit a museum inside as well.

The visit to the castello was worth it for the beauty and serenity of the place. Taking a walk inside the quarters was very calming and peaceful. There is a museum inside the castello but we did not see it.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
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 view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
