We expected better management of this land mark to align with the effort made by Leonardo and the people who persisted to support his dream to construct this huge and amazing horse statue. The place was empty and appeared deserted. It seems there was some significant effort to make this more attractive spot but somehow was discontinued. The place does... More

This huge, beautifully done "Leonardo" horse was given as a gift to the Italian people from a large group of american donors. There is no charge to view this wonderful bronze which stands just before the entrance to an attractive Milan race track. We were completely awed and stayed for quite a while. To get there we took the metro... More

This bronze horse sculpture was created by Leonardo da Vinci in 1482. This happens to be the largest equestrian statue in the world. This piece of art is one of the early work of the Sculptor. The statue stands 24 feet mounted on a Carrara marbel pedestal and weighs 15 tons. You may visit of you have time on Milan.

This is worth seeing, however not by the very long tour bus journey on the green line. If you buy a day pass €4.50 each and use the metro it's not even a 10 minute walk to the racecourse. There is nothing else to see apart from the statue, nor any bars or restaurants, so I'd recommend just going, looking... More

This statue is everything travel brochures are saying...and more. Grand, exquisitely executed, beautiful location. Just the walk from the subway to the statue allows for a nice immersion into the area architectural, civic, historic and human character.

In 1999, I read that the Da Vinci Horse had been built and installed and added it to what i wanted to see and do on my around the world adventure. It was excellent. I stayed in the nearby Hostel and think i walked there and hung out there for a few hours taking photos of various views. Later, bought... More

The horse sculpture is impressive in size and in details. The interesting fact is that Leonardo did design of the horse sculpture in the 15th century and the sculpture was created in the 20th century. We glad that we saw Leonardo's Horse in Milan. To get to the sculpture (a) take metro Red line to Lotto, go to the left... More

If you are in the area it is well worth a look, right next to the san siro stadium it is a very outstanding piece of art.
