walk like Leonardo through the Strada Coperta into the Castle and then to the Piazza Ducale back in time
Oct 2020
nice to walk in Leonardo and the Sforza's places but the castle itself does not have much to see inside (except a Leonardo museum) but the fantastic Strada Coperta (the covered entrance to the castle it's worth the visit...and it is free.

Backin time

It felt as if I stepped back in time. More than a castle, this was what they called a weekender back on those days - I say this as fortification is minimum.

Great place

This is a great place just behind the magic Piazza Ducale. Inside the castle you have many historical place to visit including the shoe museum and a small art gallery of local painters from 16th century.

A huge space which seems to have a variety of free exhibitions just to fill it up. It is a nice space and seems to be used like a public park. It seems well kept except for the toilets with were a hole in the floor with no toilet paper or warm water or soap.

History buffs will enjoy the grounds and displays
May 2017 • Solo
This is in walking distance from The Last Supper, I spent my time here as I waited for my entry. The grounds are beautiful and there are a number of museums & displays throughout and many have nothing to do with the castle itself or the family.
There is a nominal fee for a guided audio tour of the grounds and it was worth it, for me. The entrance fee gives you access to a number of museums Egyptian, Swords, Musical instruments, Ceramics ... choose the subjects that appeals to you because you may not get through them all.
There is a nice little cafe to eat on the grounds and the prices are affordable. There are beautiful gardens and a number of castle cats that roam around.

Beautiful Imposing Castle
Sep 2017 • Friends
Enjoyed walking through the grounds and around the castle. No fee unless you visit the many museums. Also there is a public toilet for those in need. The castle leads into a large lovely park on one side and a beautiful fountain on the other. Near the fountain was a guy selling and making churros and empanadas which were very tasty! There are a few panhandlers and folks trying to sell bracelets etc, but we had no problems after firmly saying no or ignoring them altogether - no eye contact- was never afraid just irritated.
