Sempione Park or Parco Sempione is a park in Milan noted for its beautiful large green meadows and relaxing ambience in the central city district of Milan. The clean water of the pond reflecting the Torre Branca Tower in the afternoon glow is really a moment to enjoy sitting amidst the soothing green cover of the park. Tourists in Milan prefer the park as a stopover on their busy sightseeing itinerary in the historic center of the city. In between hopping over places of historic interests surrounding this park this is the perfect place to take repose.
Sempione Park was originally the hunting ground of the Visconti Royals in the 14th Century and in the early 15th Century it was shaped as a garden behind the royal palace. It was built in the tradition of so called English landscape gardening by a local architect of Milan from 1890 to 1893.
Besides the lush green space and scenic tranquility of the park ambience there are a few monuments and buildings which were built by the conquering French ruler Napoleon as he envisioned building a fort here. Arco della Pace or Peace arch, Aquaria Civico or Public Aquarium still remains as public attractions.
