Great photo opportunity

Just before you enter the castle you have the square with the fountain. A great place to relax before or after the castle and enjoy the cooling effect of the cool waters.

We were here on a very hot June day. There were a lot of people enjoying the weather at the fountain with their dogs and children. A lot of kids were keeping cool in the fountain. A nice mix of tourists and locals!

The main attraction is the castle, but you will be seeing this on your way. Not that special when comparing it with the other famous fountains around Italy.

Castello is a must see in Milano. It is close to Duomo, you can easily come by walking in 15 minutes. The fountain is large and the castle and the garden are amazing.

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!

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.
