Full description

With a guided tour of the Castello Sforzesco and the civic museums in Milan, experience the charm of courtly life, ladies and knights, and Gothic legends. Skip the ticket lines at Castello Sforzesco (Sforza Castle) and the Museum of Ancient Art before visiting Parco Sempione.

Marvel at the architecture of Castello Sforzesco, then visit its interior to rediscover the more distant history of the city of Milan, as witnessed by the sculptural treasures of the Museum of Ancient Art.

Moving through the rooms of the castle, admire the masterpieces kept inside, from the Sala delle Asse by Leonardo da Vinci to the Pietà Rondanini by Michelangelo, and other priceless gems of the Milanese Middle Ages and Renaissance.

Later, pass the 15th-century courtyards of the castle to Parco Sempione for a stroll through the greenery of the park, where the hunting grounds of the Lords of Milan once stood. Learn about the history of the area as you explore among the tree-lined avenues and the numerous monuments.

In the green heart of Milan, designed by the architect Emilio Alemagna, follow your guide on an itinerary that leads from the Fontana dell'Acqua Marcia to the romantic Ponte delle Sirenette (once suspended over the Naviglio).

Continue to the Bagni Misteriosi di Giorgio De Chirico (a treasure sometimes forgotten by the Milanese themselves) and the Civic Aquarium of Milan.

The aquarium is housed in a one-of-a-kind building, an example of Art Nouveau architecture and the only surviving building of an exhibition apparatus built for the universal exhibition held in Milan over a century ago.

Not far from the aquarium, at the edge of the park, discover the Arena Civica, now a temple of sport in the city center: it was Napoleon who wanted it that way. Marvel at an amphitheater that could accommodate 30,000 people for celebrations and public performances under the Milanese sky.
