This ancient building today houses Milan's most important museums. Utter luxury.
Guarding over Sempione Park.
Here many of the city's most valuable treasures are hiding. You will find it guarding over Sempione Park. To reach it, take the metro to Cairoli Castello. A few steps away you have the Duomo; ideal for combining both visits in one day, although here you might find yourself lingering quite some time. This is one of the oldest and most iconic buildings in Milan. Since the fourteenth century, the castle has been used as a military barracks, a Ducal Palace or as a city defence. But today it plays host to the city's most important museums. Reach it by strolling leisurely along Via Dante. You will soon see the Filarete Tower rising up behind the Garibaldi monument. This is well worth a visit, especially at night. Then you will see the façade and the fountain in front of the entrance lit up.
