A nice walk in Arco della Pace is such a romantic thing to do! The lights, old villas and the boulevards will make you go back in time and take you to a beautiful dream (filled with colorful cocktails in one of the many elegant bars in the area, of course!)

“Located not far from the Duomo, Milan’s Castello Sforzesco – built in the 15th century by Duke Francesco Sforza – was once one of the largest citadels in Europe. Today, it houses various museums and numerous important artworks and relics, but it is also nice to wander through its courtyards and drink in the sense of history. After you are done exploring the castle, walk out the back gate and straight into Parco Sempione, Milan’s “green lung” and one of the most beautiful parks in the city. There are a variety of events planned this year at the castle to honour da Vinci’s contribution to the destination, from frescoes to other beautiful adornments. ”

“Just behind the Sforza castle, you will find the green lung of the city. The Parco Sempione (Simplon Park in english) is the largest public park in Milan and a perfect place to rest a bit. Some buildings worth seeing while strolling around: The Civic Aquarium of Milan, and its nice architecture. The visit isn’t really worth it, as it’s quite small The Triennale, highlighting the arts and Italian architecture The Arena Civica, a multi-purpose stadium dating from 1807, where sport events are held The Arco della Pace, the triumphal arch of Milan, built to celebrate peace. I loved the architecture! ”

“Meeting at sunset, when the sun goes down and the city slowly lights up in the evening lights ... it's time to get on the more Milanese Tower, the Torre Branca! Floor after floor, up to the highest panoramic terrace of the Branca Tower: listening to a thousand stories and stories about the city that slowly unfolds before our eyes, enjoying, up there, almost 100 meters high, an aperitif at a single altitude and unforgettable! The Torre Branca, a true work of art by Giò Ponti, who competes in height with the Madonnina, will be the fulcrum of our guided tour. An iron structure that offers, after a quick ascent in the elevator, a terrace overlooking the city, a privileged point of view to allow us to expand the horizons, observing the Sforzesco Castle at our feet and a little further the monuments of the historic center , the new neighborhoods and the modern cathedrals of glass and, in the days of clear skies, the mountains that are the corollary to our splendid region. We climb to the top of Torre Branca and at 98 meters of height let's enjoy the view from up here! With the lights of the evening and the city that lights up with life in the atmosphere that is increasingly tinged with sparkling reflections ... But not only! Our climb to the top is made even more special by a sweet break, a moment to pamper us and warm our palate with a sparkling aperitif! Every moment is good to discover Milan in tasty company. Give away and give yourself an atmosphere of pleasure, between beauty, magnificence and goodness at high altitude!”

“The symbol of the city is located on Piazza del Duomo, the historic center and best starting point for a stay in Milan. Started in 1386, the construction of Milan Cathedral took nearly 500 years. It was finished under the order of Napoleon Bonaparte who absolutely wanted to be crowned as king of Italy there. This architectural wonder is the third largest cathedral in the world, after St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rome and the Cathedral of Seville. From the outside, you can admire its facade entirely made of perfectly carved stones. The 2.000 white marble statues and 136 arrows makes the whole thing super impressive! When seeing it, you clearly understand why it’s nicknamed “the marble hedgehog”. The interior is also worth a visit, with its 5 sumptuous naves and 52 columns, each representing a week of the year. You can also admire sarcophagi and tombs of several archbishops, as well as a crucifix made by the master Leonardo Da Vinci himself! But the highlight of the visit is the possibility to go on the terrace of the Cathedral. From up there, the view of Milan is breathtaking! You can choose to go there either by stairs or elevator, the second option being of course a bit more expensive.”
