Vigevano is a pleasant surprise! Arriving in Piazza Ducale , you immediately realize why it is considered one of the most beautiful squares in Italy! It is related to the name of the Renaissance architect Donato Bramante who probably also designed the tower of the Visconti Castle , whose courtyards can be visited.
Inside the Castle we will let you experience the era of Leonardo da Vinci's stay with the Dukes Ludovico il Moro and Beatrice d’Este . Even today we can enter the old stables and admire the falconer and the particular and suggestive covered road, an escape route in times of intrigues and wars.
Inside the Castle we recommend to complete the guided tour with the very interesting International Museum of Footwear in the city that has long been one of the most important for the production of quality shoes (entrance to the Museum for a fee).
