Top ways to experience Castello Sforzesco
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: 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.

Beautiful with so many things to see and do
Oct 2021
Beautiful with so many things to see and do. Well worth spending an entire day there in the exhibition and the garden. Always full of locals and it one of the few really nice outdoor public places.

Nice exhibitions and architecture
Sep 2021 • Friends
The castle can be easily found and has a nice garden. The ticket office is easy to found, but the waiting time is long, mainly due to COVID-19 restrictions. There is a student discount for all the exhibitions. The whole building with it’s museums can be visited within 2-3 hours and offers many different exhibitions, my favourite one was the one of the musical instuments! However the ‘Sala delle Asse’, a room decorated by Leonardo da Vinci, was under reconstruction and it wasn’t written anywhere, so the visitirs would discover it only in front of the room. Bring also good shoes, because there are many stairs and the different collections can be found in different parts of the building.

Casello Sforzesco is a quick visit if you choose to not tour the museum portion
Jul 2021
Again another quick site to take in while in Milan and short walking distance from Il Duomo and right next door to the Cadorna train station. We did not have time to take in the museum.

Amazing fortress
Jul 2021
Our small tour group stopped near the castle and we had two hours to explore this beautiful medieval fortress.
We were impressed with the display posters of celebrating Leonardo d’Vinci’s 500th birthday and his inventions. I didn’t know he was the first to design the pergola.
The grounds are well kept and clean. There was a group of musicians practicing for a concert at the stage.
Just outside there is a beautiful water fountain.
The public bathrooms were well maintained.

Worth A Look
Jul 2021
More of a fort then a castle, this building is well worth adding to your itinerary as it is free & very central, plus the surrounding area & park are also nice. You pay only if you want to visit the museums within.
