The best high views, but a rather short visit

The tower is very high and well located. It is half the price of the Duomo rooftops and provides better views. You can see the entire city, from the Stadium, the modern district... read more

How this is not higher on TA is a mystery to me. The views on a clear day all over Milan are breathtaking. Although you get limited time at the top, there are only a few per group so you can see everything and take photos. For people who enjoy views this is a must.

The tower is very high and well located. It is half the price of the Duomo rooftops and provides better views. You can see the entire city, from the Stadium, the modern district, to the Duomo and all the other points of interest. The top room is accessible via an elevator and visits involve small groups of 5-10 people at... More

Can't understand why this is not even mentioned in our guide book and is not higher on TA. For 5 Euro, you get a stunning view of the city on a fine day including views up to the alps. A lift takes you to the enclosed viewing platform at the top and while you don't get very long up there,... More

Walk by while walking in park area. Seems to be under so sort of construction. I would check before you go. Doesn't seem like you would see much only maybe 2 stories tall if that. Due to construction didn't look safe. I wouldn't have gone it if it was open due to safety concerns

If you want to see Milan from the top it is great opportunity for cheap price. Nothing special, but just enough.

This is a tower in the Parco Sempione gardens which is right behind the Sforzesco Castle and a short walk from the Duomo. The cost is very reasonable (5 Euro) and the only way up is by lift (don't need to worry about tightly packed staircases). THe view is beautiful and well worth the 5 Euro. Overall this just adds...

The best place to have a fantastic view of the center of milan and in a Sunshine day you can see far to the Alpi. Very few Euro for a very good experience. It is also open in the eveninig. Never been. I will go.

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.
