Neighborhood · Hidden Gem · Shopping
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.

  • This place is full of people, but they are not Italians, we don't think. These people have made this place a den of not good character people.  more »
  • It is recommended to hang out there and having a walk from the Duomo to this wonderful district that has a really Italian sense and elegant classic buildings.  more »
