What people are saying about Sforza Castle

We had spontaneously switched from an hour to a two-hour tour. This was absolutely no problem and we were able to organize the 2nd lesson as we wanted. Our rickshaw driver Zura was a humorous and funny driver who maneuvered us safely through everywhere with a lot of vigor and joy. Now and then he sang happily to himself. We would book the same tour with Zura right away. A wonderful experience. Andrea & Roger
