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.

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!

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 It was originally made in the fascist years and after a 60 years long storage it went under restoration and rebuild (like a puzzle) as an ornamental item just in front of the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.
