I went after 4:30, when entrance is free. Lot to see inside- capped by Michaelangelo's Pieta. Really wonderful! I brought along my Rick Steves guidebook, and it enhanced my visit with helpful context. The Pieta exhibit is really well done.

This historical sight takes you deep into history and not just of Italy, but of medieval times. Look closer and you will see what life used to be. Fun fact: Italian architects built the Kremlin in Moscow which is based on this castle!

It's massive and being Scottish I love a good castle and court yard but this place is amazing. Fantastic mixture of arts and historic buildings, wasn't too busy and very peaceful to wonder around.

Surprisingly intact and well preserved the fortress contains several museums even featuring Michelangelo's last sculpture, the unfinished Rondanini Pietà. There is a small fee to tour the museums, but admission to the castle...More

This place is marvelous in the day and in the night with its special lighting. I advice you to go before the sunset to see it in both ways. It is really good.

Castello Sforza is a must in Milan. I would recommend walking from Milan Cathedral as it is a pleasant distance which allows you to see plenty of the city centre area.

This is a collection of different museums plus the fortress itself under the same entrance ticket. Do not miss Michelangelo pieta. We liked Museum of Ancient Art and collection of musical instruments.

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

Hello. Nope, I didn't see any. I think it will be better if you can leave it in the hotel or in the train stn. If you are looking to get the bus tour, you may ask the guide.
