Visit one of Europe’s largest castles, dating back to the 15th century. Milan’s “Sforza” castle is fitted with towers, drawbridges, a moat and thick, crenellated walls just like in the movies or a child’s imagination only this is real and full of fun facts and eventful history. Stroll with me through the three courtyards and hear about the past and present use of this massive and elaborate structure.
Patrizia has literally "travelled the world and the seven seas" like in that famous song of the 80's. With no hesitation, after completing her academic degree in languages and tourism, she also got her Tour Guide certificate. Over the years she has been sailing on tall ship in Thailand, riding the Orient Express to Paris, exploring the Egyptian temples of Luxor, cruising past the glaciers of Argentinian Patagonia, admiring the Aurora Borealis in the Swedish Lapland, visiting wineries in New Zealand... Lately Patrizia has returned to her home country Italy and has been accompanying tours to Rome, Venice, Florence, Cinqueterre, Amalfi Coast to name a few. Then to further her education she got a certificate as Local Guide of Lake Como and Milan. The latter is where she lives but also where she grew up and she is loving sharing her city and its surroundings rich in history, art, but also modern architecture and up-beat events.

I totally enjoyed the tour of Milan's castle with Patrizia. I had heard she is a good tour guide and what I heard was not wrong! Patrizia is very informative and speaks English beautifully. She answered questions, she described everything very well and we saw a beautiful castle, learning many things along the way about it's place in history and also the history of the architecture of the castle. I look forward to many other tours with Patrizia!

When I last visited the Castle 7, 8 years ago, I was very busy with the Art aspect of it, but now I REALLY appreciate all of the historical references and lineages that you told us about! Complicated but fascinating!
