Nice and peaceful. Limited opening hours in August. Boron is not fascinating, but enjoyed sitting in the shade whilst children ran around. The quietest place in Milan.

There is a reason for the free entance: there is absolutely nothing special. The garden is very small. It is hard to find the entance. It is a nice garden but definitely not worth visiting it unless you are in the neighborhood and have nothing...More

A beautiful garden located inside the academy. Pastoral and soothing. A nice place to eat a sandwich or simply relax. Ask the locals how to get.

This is a small secret garden which you can find if you walk through the back entrance of Palazzo di Brera. Entrance is free and you can find some unique plants here including a couple of old ginko trees. Worth a visit.

Not too appealing to a plant person but a nice quiet niche away from the hubbub. Seems unkempt but maybe it was the time of year. Difficult to find - we had to really hunt for it.

Free entry. Cute very small botanical garden behind the Pinacoteca di Brera - enter through the academy on the ground floor ... Enjoyable cool shaded garden to breath in fresh air and relax awhile after visiting the Brera Art Gallery upstairs.

Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where
tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty
reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca
(galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and
Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior
design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to
