The Filarete Tower is the natural link between the important Milanese landmarks – Piazza del Duomo and the Arco della Pace – which represent two of the city’s most important historical periods: social life in Milan has always revolved around the Sforza Castle, a symbol of both the city’s renowned industriousness and its love of beauty.

Preceded by a vast pedestrian area and heralded by a magnificent fountain whose waters freeze during the coldest winters, everything about the imposing castle was meant to convey the power and wealth of the Dukes of Milan.

As well as its towers, battlements, vast halls and courtyards, the castle is also home to 18 different museums, among them the Museum of the Pietà Rondanini Michelangelo, the Sala delle Asse Leonardo da Vinci and the Egyptian Museum, giving visitors a range of attractions within an attraction.

Behind the castle lies Parco Sempione, the biggest park in the heart of the city, which leads directly to the Arco della Pace and the Arena Civica, two magnificent relics of the Napoleonic era.
