The girl who gave us the explanations was very punctual, she gave us some tickets that gave us access to all the museums inside the castle. It is essential to go to the area where the Rondanini Pietà is located (the last work sculpted by Michelangelo, he was working on it six days before he died. It was found in his study after his death).

You get everywhere in Milan by bus. Are 4 routes. Nice staff. We were there in the May holiday. Calm period.
