This was a lovely set up and a very busy attraction. Worth a visit to walk through and take a closer look.

We were here on our sightseeing tour and were very impressed with huge castle and grounds. Several places to photograph and definitely a romantic location for couples to explore. There are lots of things to explore, see and understand about this famous landmark castle. Would recommend a guide to help.

During our short Milan visit we assigned the last day (after Duomo, Galleria and Lake Como) to check out two landmark attractions (this famous castle along with the Church of Santa Maria di Grazie) in close proximity west of downtown not too far from the Cadorna train station, accessible by M1 metro. It’s an impressive sight walking up to this massive 600-year old fortress with imposing looking towers. Once we entered the walled grounds we found a huge square in the center. The more we explored the more it seemed like a maze packed with many exhibits and museums on disparate subjects like armory, furniture, wooden sculpture, decorative arts, musical instruments. Our first stop was the Michelangelo Pieta Rondanini Museum. It soon became obvious that the hour we had allocated would be totally insufficient to do it justice. Then rain started falling which made the whole experience overwhelming. It would have been great if we had more time and familiarity with the language.

The castle has a stunning garden with an expansive park area to rest or play. The castle also offers a nice courtyard where you can relax and it has a water fountain with potable water. Hint: there are areas around the castle gardens to park for free! Watch the signage and get up to date on Milan's parking policies. Park at the castle and you can walk to the Duomo, Emmanuel II shopping district and the refectory of the Convent of Santa Maria delle Grazie (where Leonardo DaVinci's The Last Supper painting is kept). Note: buy tickets in advance for the Last Supper or you will not see it! My only disappointment in Milan... I missed The Last Supper.

We visited the castle and its museums with our Uni son (on his advice). It was well worth the visit, loads of different mini museums - furniture, art, pre historic Italy etc. It was a shame the Egyptology & Da Vinci sections were closed for an up grade , maybe next time we can have a look.The castle is massive. Look out for the feral cat community in the moat!

The castle occupied our attention for over two hours as it has a great little art gallery.
Also, just to the north is Milan’s version of Central Park, really lovely for a relaxing stroll.

Castle Sforza is the home of the Sforza family who lead Milan for many years. It is free to enter the castle and walk through the grounds. There are also multiple museums inside. The most famous is that of Michelangelo's last pieta, which is unfinished but housed inside the castle. Unfortunately we didn't have time to do more than stroll through the castle grounds, but they were impressive, with a nice clock tower. We only had about 20 minutes to spare but were glad that we'd taken the time to walk through.

This castle is enormous. Plan on an entire day to see it all. Although it doesn’t appear as a museum, it houses large superb collections of sculpture, furniture, paintings, musical instruments, tapestries, armor and weapons and the Rondinini Pieta by Michelangelo. It is hard to do justice to each of these exhibits in a single day. Plan on at least an hour for each. When you need a break there is wonderful cafe for lunch or tea. Learning the history of the building itself is also captivating. There is a ceiling painted by Leonardo Da Vinci but it is currently undergoing restoration. This is one of Milan’s most impressive museums.

Michelangelo's Pieta was disapoointing and Da Vinci's Hall was closed. Unless you are interested in archaeology, there is no point going there.
