What to expect

Experience the life and history of medieval Milan - learn about the Dukes, Leonardo da Vinci and more while visiting the Sforza Castle!

Join a tour of one of the most important landmarks in the city to get a real taste of medieval life. Enjoy your officially licensed tour guides’ descriptions and juicy anecdotes - the only way to truly feel part of the monument and not to just stand there looking at the walls.

Out of the thousands of castles you can find in Italy, understand how important a fortress can be from military, political and cultural points of views. Erected upon one of the ancient Roman gates of the city, the castle has been a social gathering hot spot for millennia. The current version dates back to 1450 and was built under the rule of Francesco Sforza. The castle was also home to Leonardo da Vinci for years, as Milan was one of the most advanced European capitals in terms of engineering and culture. Another important guest was Donato Bramante, architect of Saint Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican.

This tour will take you through the inner courtyards as well as the immediate surroundings of the fortress where you will get to know the life of the court and the intrigues that only these kind of places conceal.
