We saw this beautiful statue a couple of times. The first time was on our way to the Castello Sforzesco. In fact we could see the castle from this area of the statue. A great viewing point too! We also passed by this point again...More

This is a monument for an important man. Giuseppe Garibaldi was one of the main leaders of Italy's union. For his significant task and his great leadership, he deserved to be remembered for further generations.

The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square
