The castle is worth 45 minutes to an hour stroll but it is really just a large building with a lot of open space. The most interesting thing were the cats in the old moat.

A captivating sculpture by Michelangelo that he was working on days before his death, and a ceiling by Leonardo himself along with some of his pupils are just two of the relatively unknown masterpieces tucked away within the Castello. Don't miss them, and if you go after 4pm entry is free until closing time!

My trip to Milan was off the cuff so this is something I was recommended to see - and I'm glad I did.

The castle is impressive, large and beautiful constructed/decorated. "Behind" the castle is a massive park and plenty of other things to go on and see from it. It is not worth a full day but an hour or so is a must.

Near by are three metro stations so getting around is easy enough.

Was taken aback after seeing all the ornate Italian renaissance buildings to come across this ancient looking castle in the midst of the hustle and bustle of Milan. I enjoyed a great walk around the beautiful grounds, and admired the archway in the park and the colossal fountain at the entrance.
