This is my first time in Milan and this district is perfect for a walk. Small narrow streets with great shops, small churches and lots of green in between too. I did a lot of window shopping.

This area is much more pricy than the rest of Milan, and the restaurants and cafès are no better than any other in this city. But there are still some cute streets and I enjoyed walking around here my first months living here.

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

Brera is not that big. You can find the center of activity along via Fiori Chiari but every street near that one has some appeal for people watching and food. Go 2-3 streets in any direction and there is more. Via Madonnina... More
