Lovely statue, superb homage to Da Vinci's artistic genius

This statue is everything travel brochures are saying...and more. Grand, exquisitely executed, beautiful location. Just the walk from the subway to the statue allows for a nice... read more

This is worth seeing, however not by the very long tour bus journey on the green line. If you buy a day pass €4.50 each and use the metro it's not even a 10 minute walk to the racecourse. There is nothing else to see apart from the statue, nor any bars or restaurants, so I'd recommend just going, looking... More

This statue is everything travel brochures are saying...and more. Grand, exquisitely executed, beautiful location. Just the walk from the subway to the statue allows for a nice immersion into the area architectural, civic, historic and human character.

In 1999, I read that the Da Vinci Horse had been built and installed and added it to what i wanted to see and do on my around the world adventure. It was excellent. I stayed in the nearby Hostel and think i walked there and hung out there for a few hours taking photos of various views. Later, bought... More

The horse sculpture is impressive in size and in details. The interesting fact is that Leonardo did design of the horse sculpture in the 15th century and the sculpture was created in the 20th century. We glad that we saw Leonardo's Horse in Milan. To get to the sculpture (a) take metro Red line to Lotto, go to the left... More

If you are in the area it is well worth a look, right next to the san siro stadium it is a very outstanding piece of art.

We were on a tour of Italy and visited Milan. One of our stops was to see this horse that was designed by Leonardo DaVinci. It is 24 feet tall and was impressive but was not made by Leonardo. He did design work on it but was not able to build it. A gentleman from Allentown, PA, USA took Leonardo's... More

If you are not a horse person this is a waste of time. Sculpture would have been more interesting if actually done by DaVinci. Unless you are already familiar with Milan's outskirts this horse is difficult to find and a long walk from the metro station. If you still want to see the horse, bring snacks as restaurants are difficult... More

In 1482 the Duke of Sforza commissionned the largest equine statue ever conceived, Leonardo worked on the project for 17 years but when the project was ready, a war prevented bronze - precious in warfare - from being used for statues. Nearly 500 years later, Charlie Dent decided that Leonardo and Italy should have The Horse , as a gesture... More
