Due to its central location and its vicinity to the underground/subway, and consequently to the ease of access to the Zona Fiera RHO/Pero, Fiera Milano City and the Cadorna train station which is served by the Malpensa Express shuttle, the Hotel Ariosto is ideally situated for doing business and holding conferences, as well as having a vacation and relaxing, shopping or visiting museums and art galleries.
Milan is the capitol of shopping! One of the main streets for shopping is the Corso Vercelli, which is easy to reach from the Hotel Ariosto. For lovers of art and cultural activities, one will be pleasantly surprised to discover that the Sforzesco Castle, the Sempione Park, as well as the stupendous Renaissance church of Santa Maria della Grazie, a UNESCO world heritage site, are all easy to reach on foot.
The Sforzesco Castle and Sempione Park are just a stone’s throw away from “home”
The castle of Milan, one of the main symbols of the city and the decorations of which were contributed to by Leonardo da Vinci, dates back to the 15th century and was the protagonist of a long and tormented history. This majestic fortress today represents a vivacious cultural and artistic center, which invites visitors to discover its secret paths through suggestive exhibits, shows, guided tours, concerts and special events. Even children can find something special to do here: the Sforzinda initiative, in the suggestive d’Armi square, organizes passion-driven, themed activities for schools and families, combining recreational and didactic activities into a tapestry that weaves together history, art and culture.
The castle faces the Sempione Park, which extends as far as the Arco della Pace. This grand, public green area offers many possibilities for use, as a recreational area for relaxing in the open air or doing sports, to areas for exhibits and concerts. Here there is also a library, the public aquarium, botanical gardens, kiosks and bars. In the Arena Civica, a multifunctional sports structure, there are even athletic events held. In addition, the area is covered by WI-Fi service.
