Everyone was out in the park, enjoying the non rainy weather! It is the place to go on the weekend. There are always musicians, displays, expos, and other activities going on, you get a feel for the city by being there.

Right in the centre of the city, this is a lovely place to take a break from pounding the city streets. Bar Bianco, in the middle of the park, was built in the 1950s and is a great place to have a drink and a sandwich at very reasonable prices.

Interesting to know and then see the history of this park. Originally designed as a playground for Napoleon to play boats. Public meeting and sporting events have also graced the park. Concerts and football matches. Above all it is a beautiful green place near the heart of Milan and a nice place to wander.

Leaving the Castello Sforzesco you come into this Park. Great green open space, lovely walks and places to sit. Nice shaded areas on hot days. We visited over the Easter weekend 2017 and the park was well used by all ages. At the far end of the park is Arco della Pace.

The park is particularly attractive as it is located behind the Castle Sfortsesko absent, and is visited by many travelers to relax or to take a nice walk in the green with ponds.

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
