Brera District, Milan

4.4
#2 of 322 in Shopping in Lombardy
In historic Milan, Brera District is an epicenter of art, culture, and romantic dining. Both the Brera Academy of Fine Arts and the Brera Art Gallery attract artists and students, giving the district a Bohemian feel. An astronomy observatory is in the same building as the academy and gallery. Go behind it to visit Milan's botanical garden. Stroll the streets and roam shops selling antiques and art, booths sheltering fortune tellers, and a street market peddling ingredients for Italian cooking.

  • Here is everything. Cafes, restaurants, shops of all kinds. Good food and great to just stroll. Don't rush through this area but enjoy the culture show.

  • Brera District is probably the most charming neighborhood we visited in Milan (we didn't have time to go to Navigli). The district has charming narrow streets filled with nice cafes and bars.  more »
