2. An off the beaten path itinerary

The Sforza Castle and the Church San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore

This route conducts through Milan history in the Reinassance Age when Leonardo da Vinci, Michelangelo, Luini and more famous artists used to live.


The Sforza Castle, the huge fortress redesigned by the mighty Sforza family, still looks almost exactly the way it used to when Leonardo da Vinci worked in it. We’ll stroll the court yards on accessible paths to the back side and admire the Arch of Peace erected in the Parco Sempione.

After a 20 minutes walk by the Needle, Thread and Know giant sculpture, the late Baroque Palazzo Litta, we’ll reach the Church San Maurizio al Monastero Maggiore. Also called the “Sistine Chapel” of Milan, for the amazing paintings decorating on the whole surface, it shows the excellence of Milanese artists. An elevator is available for disabled guests for accessing the building.
