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.

I liked this place because I love nature but I think they could keep it a little better because it is a very original location in Milan

After visiting the Brera art gallery, I stumbled across the associated botanic garden at the back and side. The garden has some interesting collections which were being used by a school group when I was there. I was impressed by the huge Gingko trees.

To access this botanic garden, one has to walk through the Palazzo di Brera all the way to its back and then turn right. It's a lovely garden, although it did not look especially grand in the middle of winter. Entrance is free.

During October there wasn't much to see. Noticeably old, which is a good thing, and well managed garden with many nice plants and flowers. Worth of visiting in the spring and summer time.

Brera
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
