Superb exhibition of renaissance paintings, in a beautiful venue. Plenty of space, not crowded, even beginning of August. Plan a half-day for the visit (15€ pp with headset). Well worth the visit.

You can see almost all art history there, Piero della Francesca, Veronese, Tintoretto, Caravaggio in a huge beautiful Museum. Take time to see art without being in a hurry, choose a phone guide and you will have a very especial trip through Time.

The supplements to the collection, including 20th century pieces, are well selected. The place is a remarkable effort in conservation, display...More

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

You should ask to the ticket office at the place to be sure. There is no need to buy tickets in advance because it's not a crowded museum even if it has lots of great painting of well known renassance artist. Enjoy your trip!
