After dealing with the hordes near the Duomo, I was so relieved to come up from the Metropolitan & see a castle with a gorgeous fountain and nicely situated apartments in the circle surrounding The building itself is pretty spectacular-to an American- with moats, walls and

Its infront of the castle. You can go there by the Metro or you can walk to it from the Duomo. Its not too far, and you enjoy walking to it.

It is a refreshing site on a hot day, but a bit too crowded for my taste. Right now there's also a lot of construction going on, as the two glass pavilions for the Milan 2015 exhibition have been built on the site.

The perfect spot to just relax. Be aware of guys trying to give you friendship bracelets, total scam. Otherwise the cool water can be really nice when you've spent the day in the heat being a tourist!

I often sit here in the summer with a book or my lunch. It's really comfortable and relaxing as long as you don't mind being hassled by the steady flow of hawkers.

The Fontana di Piazza Castello is the fountain in front of Parco Sempioni, its always busy. A great place to take pictures with the castello in the background. Dont be surprised to see many Chinese there taking wedding pictures

From a purely aesthetical point of wiev the fountain has no relation with the Sforza's Castle. It was originally made in the fascist years and after a 60 years long storage it went under restoration and rebuild (like a puzzle) as an ornamental item just in front of the Filarete's tower. Possibly a low budget caused the municipality to choose... More
