All the roads lead to Roma (Rome)

Magnificient, especially by night. Built on its own rich past!

Castello Sforzesco

The great Castle was named after Francesco Sforza, who transformed it into a ducal residence in 1450. Its origins though date back to the 14th century, at the time of Galeazzo II Visconti. It's a magnificient feast of architecture and history. Behind the castle is the Parco Sempione, a large green park with outdoor restaurants and huge trees, a good place to take a nap and observe the locals.
