Brera galley is the main art gallery in Milan and has an impressive array of Italian art as you might expect.The b uilding was originally a convent and has passed to various others over the years and is indeed impressive and worth a visit just for the architecture alone.

Brera Pinacoteca is the second sightseeing you have to visit while in Milan. The entrance fee is 10 euros (7 the reduced one). You can admire many beautiful paintings from Tintoretto, Raphael, Caravaggio and many others. You will need about two or more hours. The region around Pinacoteca is very nice for a meal or dinner.

Our Tauck Tour included a visit to the Pinacoteca di Brera. What an outstanding museum. It is laid out, or at least partially laid out, in the years of the works. The paintings and objects to be seen are beautiful and with proper guide and explanation the time spent viewing in this museum is well worth the 12 euros for... More

Not the biggest art gallery in Italy, - nowhere near Uffizi etc. But it does contain some real masterpieces, and it is set in a very, very, very beautiful building. Worth a couple of hours of your time.

I had no real advance knowledge of this museum (this was a last-minute trip to Milan), and was completely astonished at the depth and breadth of the collection. I expected to stay an hour or so, and ended up leaving, reluctantly, after 2.5 hours (only because it was well-past lunch time and I was starving). The collection of medieval paintings,... More

The most memorable bit of my visit to La Pinacoteca was seeing paintings done before the concept of 3D painting was conceived. Plan to spend a few hours at the end of the day and then to Bulgari for a chic aperativo.

Packed with art that you have never seen before- beautiful works from the 12th century, for example. Elegantly presented. We were mesmerized.

Staying in Brera

Neighbourhood Profile
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 admire the architecture of buildings and the design stores. On Sundays, going to the local market is an unmissable opportunity for fashion, style and art. Tucked away, there is the Orto Botanico di Brera botanical garden that seems like a painting framed in an ancient fairy structure. Last but not least, it’s worth a visit to Giardini Pubblici Indro Montanelli with its Planetarium, the Civico Museo di Storia Naturale (Natural History Museum).
