Brera District, Milan

(4.4/5 based on 1,300+ reviews on the web)
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. Make Brera District part of your personalized Milan itinerary using our Milan itinerary builder.

  • Milan is one of my favorite places, cafes, bustling with restaurants and great location.

  • Really worth exploring all the side streets in this area. Still some tourist traps and over-expensive places to eat, but also some gems and a lot of variety to be had - worth an afternoon or evening v...  more »
  • Choose a sunny day, if you can, to stroll in Brera. Preferably in the morning. The atmosphere is unique and romantic. You can go into the porches of the Academy and the beautiful botanical garden located just behind. The Botanical Garden has been linked to some of the works of art preserved in the pinacoteca, for a wonderful tour. The shop Windows, the old bar, walking, guarantee a relaxing morning.
