My AirBnB was in Brera and I loved it. Walking the streets window shopping at Italian boutiques like Angelo Caputti and enjoying the local restaurants was a highlight of my Milan visit. Highly recommend this area especially for couples.

We stayed in dreary Navigli, so we found Brera a lot more exciting with a touch of bohemian style. There's a famous art school here so there's usually students hanging round the bars. The small cobble stone streets hark back to more ancient times and...More

Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior

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
