one of the largest squares in Europe, meticulously maintained, a must-see! Build by Sforza Milano family as country residence. Nearby Castello an absolute must-see unfortunately, like so many things in Italy, not really looked after nowadays!

Great piazza. Visit it at night too. It's astonishing. Pity there are no benches to sit on and enjoy the view.
