Arco della Pace - Arch of Peace, Milan: 13 reviews and 25 photos

  Parco Sempione, with the Arch of Peace in the back
by Henrik_rrb

At the end of Parco Sempione, seen from the Castello Sforzesco, you?ll find the Arco Della Pace, Milan?s answer to the Triumphant Arc in Paris. It was built to celebrate Napoleon, although he lost the battle at Waterloo before the Arc was finished.
Later on, when Napoleon and wars was nothing you wanted to celebrate anymore, the Arc was instead dedicated to peace.
The Arch of Peace is nowadays unfortunately not in so good shape anymore.

If you prefer to watch something else the Parco Sempione itself is very nice, at least during the days. A lot of people goes there for relaxing, playing football, or talking to their friends.

Address: Parco Sempione
Directions: Go to Cadorna Metro Station, take left and then into the Castello and through the park.
