A little out of the way and no so obvious, this tower gives a spectacular 360 degree view over Milan. We were lucky to go up during I think off season or it was supposed to be closed, due to some reason. But the guy allowed just me and my boyfriend to go up to have a view of the... More

Found this unassuming tower in a park, and so glad we did! Great 360 views across Milan and you could see for miles. Well worth a visit. Only €5 each!

It is a really good place to finish a walk in Parco Sempione. The ticket does not cost much and you can get a great panoramic view. Tough to find another place like this in Milan.

I read about this tower in a book, but I didn't see any pic's of this tower. I was expecting a historic tower, since we were so close to the castle and the arco della pace. But this was just the most lame tower ever. We were there during the dat and it was just plain ugly. In the evening,... More

I visited Milan in June and came across the tower by accident, the views from the top are spectacular, I found the staff to be very nice and helpful, the manager who took us up the tower was only to happy to answer any question, my only complaint is that you did'nt get very long at the top.

I realize that going to the top of Torre Branca gives you a nice view. However, I really should have read Tripadvisor first. I tried looking up information online but couldn't really find anything. There didn't seem to be any mention of this 6 minute time limit. First of all, we couldn't enter the grounds until a beautiful hostess escorted... More

...but by not going, your missing the best views of Milan by miles. A Milanese landmark, loved by all and visited by those in the know. Fantastic place, great guide who took myself and a friend up to the viewing platform. Brilliant views. Look north to Monte Rosa and see the sun light up the Alps - very beautiful

5Euros to get up in a lift and about 7 people max at the time. Once you get to the top, you have about 10 min to walk around the tower, take photos and ask the guide questions. The view is great and gives you a better idea of how vast Milan is, seeing all the major landmarks. I would... More

Worth going all the way to the top. It was 5 Euros per person and you go up 103 meters and get 6 minutes to enjoy the panoramic view of the city.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighborhood Profile
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 view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
