Sforza Castle (Castello Sforzesco)

View operating hours
Piazza Castello, Milan, 20121

The Basics

The castle is among the most important cultural sights in Milan, together with the Church of Santa Maria delle Grazie—where Leonardo Da Vinci’sLast Supper is located—and the Cathedral. Lines can be long to enter its museums, so book a skip-the-line tour of this vast complex to avoid a delay at the entrance or join a walking tour of the city that includes stops at some of its most famous monuments and a visit to the castle. Certain parts of the castle, including the crenellated ramparts and the covered "Ghirlanda" passage, are only accessible by private tour.

The Last Supper & Sforza Castle tour
Lovella, our guide for this tour, was absolutely fantastic. Having taken several other tours on our journey, we were appreciative that she kept the group together with frequent stops to explain things. Lovella was extremely knowledgeable about the Sforza dynasty, Leonardo Da Vinci, and of course, The Last Supper painting (not a fresco as she was quick to point out). We would highly recommend this tour and guide.
