Take a walk in the park at the Sforza Castle, feed the birds at the pond, and have a small picnic on the lawn, watching the locals.
At the Sforza Castle (Castello Sforzesco) is a wonderful Sempione Park (Parco Sempione), where there is always a few tourists and you can relax with a cup of coffee. Here you will find many benches, from which you can watch the locals, there is a pond with a bridge where you can see turtles, who are not afraid of people.
Throughout the Sempione park installed fontanels with pure water, there are many coffee shops with delicious coffee, but there is no fast food here, so take care of the sandwiches in advance :)
Sempione Park is a true oasis in the middle of a large city, where you can sit on a green lawn, take a snack and a bottle of wine, have a little picnic and gather strength before the long walks through the city.
Where to do?
This is a luxurious landscaped park, spread out near the Sforza Castle, where you can have a picnic, go for a run with the locals or feed the birds at the pond.23
