Enjoy Milan green side, from Parco Sempione to Giardini Indro Montanelli, passing by Parco delle Basiliche and Porta Nuova, our brand new green area.
Pass across them through Segway or our bikes: have fun without getting tired!
Parco Sempione is the closest park to our shop, just behind the Sforza Castle (Cairoli station, red line).
This park has been created during the Napoleonic Empire, at the end of XIX century.
It’s directly connected to the castle thanks to the bridge over the moat, a defense system.
Walking around Parco Sempione you will find some bars and kiosks, where you can taste a Gelato (Italian ice Cream), coffee or an aperitivo.
In the Northern part of the park there is Arena Civica, an ancient arena that hosts many sportive events.
Next to Arena Civica you can visit the Aquarium, that houses many varieties of sea creatures in well-maintained, clearly labelled display tanks. It’s well appreciated by both adults and children.
While walking on the Western side you will arrive at La Triennale, the museum of interior design of Milan, that hosts all year long many temporary exhibitions about fashion, design, communication and society.
Summer is the best season to visit Parco Sempione on Segway: join to our Group Tour and have fun with other participants:

Giardini Indro Montanelli
Also known as Park of Porta Venezia, Giardini Indro Montanelli are dedicated to one of the most important journalist and writer of Milan.
These Gardens reflect the typical English Old Style garden, with rounded green areas (we call them “aiuole”) separated by little pathways.
If you are planning to go there, we recommend you the Planetarium and the Natural History Museum: the entrance faces on Palestro street (Palestro Station, red line).
Planetarium of Milan is the biggest one in Italy and hosts many themed session in the afternoon and in the evening.
Natural History Museum is the oldest civic museum in Milan and organizes many workshops and activities for families with little children.
Moreover, inside the park children will have fun in the playground areas, at carousels and playing with the dodgems.
Parco delle Basiliche
This name comes from the two churches (Basiliche) staying inside the park: Basilica of San Lorenzo and Basilica of Sant’Eustorgio, near to Navigli District.
If you want to have a complete tour of the most fascinating churches of Milan, book now our Churches Tour: it’s a Private Segway Tour, so you can decide what to see and you won’t get tired!
Today, wether you access the park from Piazza della Vetra or on the opposite side, close to Sant’Eustorgio, you will feel an atmosphere of tranquillity and peace.
Milanese urban philosophy is changing: architects take care of including natural elements not just in the outdoor corners, but also in the common areas and inside buildings.
A perfect example is Bosco Verticale (Vertical Wood), one of the newest skyscrapers in Porta Nuova District: every terrace has a garden with trees, flowers and bushes:
Here, urban architects included a green surrounded by bicycle streets.
When the last tree will be planted, it will become the largest pedestrian space in the city!
The Porta Nuova project includes Gae Aulenti Square, the Unicredit Tower and the Vertical Wood Skyscraper: a green area that connects all the spaces around it.
See you there!
