The Big Green Park Behind the Sforza CastleTired of running all around the city? Do you want to stop the shopping spree, museums and amazing corners? - Take a break for a short rest and enjoy one of the charming parks offered by this city.
Sempione Park (Parco Sempione) is a magnificent and romantic park, the largest urban park in Milan. It is one of the most famous and popular parks in the city, a large, green park just behind the Sforza Castle.
Sampione serves as the city's green lung, a blooming area in the heart of the city's urban landscape. This is a great place where you can walk around year-round. The park covers a wide area northwest of Duomo. You will find many couples lying on the big lawns among the trees and the water fountains scattered around it.
The Sempione Park is designed as a neo-classical garden with many fascinating elements. Among them, you will see Arco Della Pace, the Roman-style sports amphitheater, the lake with the surrounding ducks and bridges and its beautiful tower.
TipsDuring the summer you can enjoy cheerful festivals held in the park and watch various shows in the park, often free of charge.
A quick picnic? - Buy wine with a pizza or tramezzino, the triangle sandwich sold here, come and stretch out on the grass and take your time to relax...
The park is next to the castle, around the Palazzo dell'Arte (Municipal Art Museum) and next to the aquarium, making it a resting point in the passage between them.
