Create an itinerary including Brera District
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.

  • It’s the most beautiful area in Milan with colorful buildings, narrow alleys, art galleries, elegant shops, cafes, restaurants and more. You should definitely find some time to walk around the area and probably have a coffee, lunch or an aperitivo in the evening. It’s close to Duomo and you can walk towards the area or take the tram passing from Duomo
  • Great restaurant and beautiful streets. Our favorite area of Milan
