Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where

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
