A big metropolitan Park within the town of Milan and its hinterland, recovering green areas which once were industrial or uncultivated lands. These areas cover a surface of more than 450 hectares - on a total area of 790 ha - and are rich in large woodlands, meadows, a hill, stretches of water, tree-lined roads, and flowerbeds. The Park is maintained, cleaned, and supervised day by day: a safe and beautiful Park, a modern design to meet the needs of citizens. It is unique in Italy and similar to the best examples of European urban parks (Munich, London, Paris, Amsterdam, Lyon and Barcelona). Historical and artistic buildings are worth a visit: Villa Torretta in Sesto San Giovanni and Villa Manzoni and its park in Cormano.
