Here, visitors can admire some of the most beautiful art treasures of the castle, including the funeral monuments of Bernabò Visconti and Gaston de Foix, the remains of the church of Santa Maria di Brera, the Banner of the City of Milan, the Duke’s Treasure, the "camera picta" with the Stories of Griselda, the Madonna Between Saints by Andrea Mantegna, portraits painted by Lotto and Tiziano, and the Trivulzio Tapestry. The grand finale of the tour is the view of the Rondanini Pietà by Michelangelo.

THE COVERED ROAD OF THE GHIRLANDA  for small groups. Up to seven visitors, in English

Every Wednesday at 6.00 p.m.
 
Another exclusive tour: the “hidden Ghirlanda route” is an underground course winding below the level of the Sempione Park, surrounding the Castle, and generally unaccessible to the public. It preserves the layout of the Ghirlanda walls, the first defensive line of the Sforzesco square fortification. The tour represents a unique and unmissable opportunity to know the defensive systems used in the Fifteenth century and to observe tunnels, passages and towers now almost completely underground.
Underground galleries, firing posts, civilian and military projects; all of this and much more will be explained directly by Leonardo da Vinci who, back in Milan, finds a very different castle that the one he had left in the distant 1499. A suggestive and vaguely surreal tour to learn history from those who were there.
PLEASE NOTICE: The tour is not suitable for kids under 10 years old and for people with severe walking impairments.
Booking in advance is kindly required. The tour is confirmed with any number of participants.
Duration  90 minutes
Standard fare > € 25,00
