Giardini di Villa Reale

A pleasant place

This paradise in the city is located at number 16 Via Palestro. But you'll recognise it as soon as you see the giant palace that crowns the area and that once was the residence of emperor Napolein and his wife Josephine. They moved here and built the surrounding gardens. Nowadays, it is one of Milan's most beautiful places and it's worth your while, escaping one sunny afternoon to visit the palace, tour its gardens at leisure and lie under a centuries-old tree while you admire the surroundings. The gardens (ike Sempione Park) are built in imitation of the famous English gardens and the building is the finest representation of neoclassicism. Concerts and opera performances are normally held in summer. This is an absolute must if you're in the city.
