Sforza Castle, Milan Reviews - Write a Review
Beautiful castle definitely worth seeing. I didn't pay anything just to walk around it. Night time can have some shady characters around the park, so I would stay with a group or go during the day.
Incredible! Was wishing so bad to go back in time to see this place in action. But from what they had available to see, you can imagine pretty well. The moat was so cool looking (dry of course). It was a Tuesday so it was free!
It's a great big castle that Leonoardo had a hand in (though his fresco is under restoration until 2019). Unusually, there's a little cafe in the grounds. Great through route to the Via Dante and the Duomo. More elegant than you'd imagine - you will be unable to resist getting your camera out.
Very interesting castle. Most of the castle is free. The bad thing is too many doggy people outside. Selling stuff.
Beautiful castle. A spectacular building! Definitely worth a good walk around.
