We had a great time here. The fountain is cold so it great to cool off your hand and feet in. We even got in properly, quite a few people did. It's beautiful and lovely to sit by and eat ice cream!

A beautiful fountain situated at the entrance in Sforzesco Castle. It is the best place to meet your friends if you intend to go in the castle's park.

This is not the best fountain you are going to see but the backdrop of the castle really makes it special you will see it on your way to visit Castello sforzesco.

Right in front of the ''Castello Sforzesco'', a simple fountain, not much to say about it, with the presence of the castle behind it is a typical beautiful photographic scenery. Perhaps a visit of a few minutes is sufficient, take your time and enjoy this lovely place.

Very well placed fountain. I think that Castello Sforzesco wouldn’t be the same without this fountain at the main entrance… After visiting the castle is awesome just sitting near the fountain and relaxing by listening to the water falling…

As I approached the castle, it was my first picture, a large fountain with a spectacular spray of water and the castle in the background. It is out in the front piazza that encircles the castle. Some benches and some fruit and drink stands. Before it is the tourist info center and the Cairoli metro stop and tram stops also.

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.
