Great place for your morning walk.

Take a walk, run or just watch. Stop for coffee. See the Castle. Walk into town. Well kept and particularly nice from early mornings from spring to late autumn.

A clean park with several ducks and a lake, surrounded by a sight on all 4 sides. You will normally see several locals exercising and strolling there dogs. However, it seemed riddled with gangs of scammers and, lets say, "shady" people. Would not go there during nighttime, when the place is relatively empty.

I would normally give this park a higher rating, as it is a very calm, quiet and pleasant place to stroll, especially well situated between the Castello Sforzesco and the Peace Arch. However, the place is infested with hordes of asylum seekers and refugees, all young men, that seek to sell you anything or get money from you. Their scams... More

Parco Sempione is a great place to take a "walk in the park" in Milano. The beautiful and impressive Castello Sforzesco is the ideal entrance to the park. Then you can just stroll the pathways and depending on the season you may enjoy a bite in a small cafe inside the park. It is green in summer and very pleasant... More

It has a good cafe/bar in the grounds which is well worth stopping at for a light lunch or ice cream.

Nice and beautiful park in Milan. This park near from Castello Sforzesco, behind of the castle, can reach by walk. There is a little lake with some ducks. Beautiful colors of autumn leaves when I come.

We loved our walk in the park although the weather was cold. Beautiful small lakes with ducks and all kind of little birds flying about and tall trees and bushes with leafs crunching underneath our feet. People were walking about cheerfully with their pets chasing leafs or each other and kids playing around their parents. Must visit if you like... More

It is nice park, but nothing special, I think mostly is for local citizens enjoying healthy lifestyle, at night I think is not safe to walk there

Nice park but would not advise going at dusk or dark. Some characters hanging around that were unnerving -would advise not walking through alone as a tourist

Thank helen s

Staying in Centro Storico

Neighbourhood Profile
Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.
