Since we had just arrived in Milan that morning, we decided to get settled into our hotel room and rest for a few hours. Refreshed and ready to get going, we got our directions from the concierge and headed out to explore the sites. One of the places we wanted to see was the Castello Sforzesco. It's a castle that used to be the seat and residence of the Duchy of Milan and one of the biggest citadels in Europe and now houses several of the city's museums and art collections.

Also located behind Castello Sforzesco & and Piazza Sempione is Parco Sempione. It's Milan's 116 acre urban park where locals and tourist can can enjoy formal gardens, monuments, fountains and a great view of the Arco della Pace (designed by Luigi Cagnola to hail Napoleon's entry into Milan).

Address: Piazza Castello, 3 20121 Milan
Directions: Located in the Triennale District of Milano.
