Giardini Pubblici (Public Gardens)

Giardini Pubblici (Public Gardens) Review

Giuseppe Piermarini, architect of La Scala, laid out these gardens across Via Palestro from the Villa Realein in 1770. Designed as public pleasure gardens, today they still are popular with families who live in the city center. Generations of Milanese have taken pony rides and gone on the miniature train and merry-go-round. The park also contains a small planetarium and the Museo Civico di Storia Naturale (Municipal Natural History Museum).
