Sforzesco Castle

Milan, Italy
4.8 / 97
The majestic Castello Sforzesco is located in the historical center of Milan. It was built as a defensive fortress in the 15th century after the seizure of power by the Sforza family. The luxurious interiors of the castle were created with the participation of Bramante and Leonardo da Vinci. By the end of the 15th century, Sforzesco became one of Italy’s richest and most luxurious ducal palaces. The castle survived the Spanish rule and supremacy of Napoleon. In the XIX century, a large-scale reconstruction was carried out.



It was very nice and clean, even had a small fountain to drink water which is great with the heat. In my opinion the rooms close too early, at around 5pm you can’t visit it anymore. The gardens are currently closed, specially during summer but .. Read more »
I was happy to take the time with my family and we saw all the attractions inside the castle. There are a lot of them. Of particular interest is the work said to be Leonardo. I wasn't allowed to record that either. Other things are also interest.. Read more »
Been to Milan before, but only pictured this beauty from the outside as it was night. This time, I arrived early in the morning to visit this historical beauty (which proved to be a good idea as the hot weather still hasn’t set in). The castle .. Read more »

While the free grounds were crowded on a beautiful Sunday, the museums were practically empty. For 5 Euros you can visit all the museums, which could take many hours if you took your time. Go to the museum for the Michelangelo first because it is .. Read more »
A large, impressive and in very good condition structure. The entrance to the castle grounds is free of charge, so you can walk around as much as you like. There are also a few museums that you can buy tickets for, but they’re not very well org.. Read more »

The beauty of this historic place is you can simply walk in and enjoy the grounds. Or you can dig into the history of the structures, the area, the city, by visiting the pay portions. We had a guide walk us through a few years ago as part of a Mi.. Read more »
Building itself is visually interesting, but not original. However, there are several rather nice museums inside. I spent there about three interesting hours for 5 Eur, which is very good value. The biggest exhibit is one of the last Michelangelo sta.. Read more »

In wanting to explore the city, we chose the busses to do it since it's only 1.50 euros and good for 90 minutes. On one of the stops we saw the sign for the castle and got off. It was a beautiful castle converted into a museum. Full of histo.. Read more »
The managers of this place have made it a lot more than just a huge castle next to the city centre. There are concerts in the evening, and dance workshops during the day. There are several large musea, and if you read this before 14 Sep 2021, then hu.. Read more »
A nice, large castle - not that spectacular on the outside but has some nice pieces of art inside, quite worth seeing. When you buy the museum tickets, make sure you ask what is open and what is not - we were not told that the Ancient Egypt and Prehi.. Read more »
Amazing historical site, a must-see when in Milano. The Museum is in true Italian style with both Roman and post-Roman things to see. The adjacent park is a great place to walk around in, or to have a workout in or to bring your dogs.
No entrance fee, which was great. Only museums cost more. Bathrooms available inside. Tons of fascinating art, history and architecture to take in, so come with some time. Park on one side is a nice place to chill for lunch. Fountains and plazas .. Read more »
A huge castle. Its architecture is well preserved and renovated. Good place for having a walk, running around, or seeing some historical aspects of the city. I'd suggest if you only have a few days in Milan, you have to go here first!
Great place to have a pic nice with wide park areas. The inside castle area holds several museums, art, musical instruments, etc. The surrounding area is immense, you can spend the whole afternoon here, there are secret spots with less congested area.. Read more »
Very nice place. It is not so loud as the Milano centre and it is perfect place to relax a little. We spend there more than hour. Also you can find a water if you wanna drink. I can only recomend to you, if you plan to go to Milano.
Interesting place with loads of history. Nice to walk through even if you don’t pay to enter one of its many museums. Cafe on site, be ware of people selling bracelets at the entrances and exits.

Another place that I would recommend visiting while in Milano. Beautiful sights and gardens around it. There's also the photo and art gallery inside which I found great too!
Art, music, a stroll...inside an ample castle's court. Look up info about the ongoing and enjoy - even just for a walk
I love this place. Less congested than Duomo and is located beside the park. There's so much to do and to see here.
A bit creepy for a young woman alone I was approached by a man right away who tried to make me walk with him away into the alley, so be careful ladies
History an nature. Art and museum. A magic place in the heart of Milan, a reminder of its glorious past.
It's a great place to gather and relax. Besides looking at some great architecture and sitting on the grass there isn't much else you can do.
Very beautiful castle in milan. There is a park beside and it's very beautiful. So many trees, benches and a shop to relax.
