Overview
Florence is not the only Renaissance city in Italy. You can still find some traces of that period in Milan as well! Unveil the last masterpiece from Michelangelo right in Sforza Castle, located in the heart of Milan. A few steps away from Duomo, the Cathedral, one of the most beautiful piece of art is resting: Pietà Rondanini by Michelangelo. He did this amazing sculpture when he was 89 years old, only a few days before his death. But it is not all about Michelangelo! Have you ever heard about his friend Leonardo Da Vinci? During the 1.5-hour guided experience with our monolingual guide you will hear many stories about him as well. Finally, every secret of the Castle is going to take life: visit the courtyard and the interior of the Castle and learn about Milan’ powerful families.

The Sforza Castle in Milan is an architecture gem. But also amazing museums on art, musical instruments, glass, China, weapons, and engravings/ prints. But also two priceless works of Da Vinci and Michangelo. Go! Don’t Miss!
