Guided Tour of Sforza Castle

The tour meets at 11:30 am by the fountain in Piazza Castello square, opposite the majestic Sforza Castle. We begin by admiring this 14th-century fort from outside. It later became a ducal palace before finally being converted by the Sforza family into one of Italy’s most impressive forts.

Then we head into the castle to learn about the milestones that punctuate its history, such as the Milanese dispute over the castle, Napoleon’s order to demolish it, and the role it played during the Second World War.

We will also follow the footprints left throughout the Castle by artists of great standing, such as Leonardo Da Vinci and Bramante. An example of that is the Rondanini Pietà, the unfinished, last work of Michelangelo which is sure to amaze!

We will finish this guided tour in the Sforza Castle area after a two-hour tour of the different halls and rooms in this Milanese building.
