Brera is now very artsy & trendy, yet still has a nice feel to it when you walk around the streets. It's not considered a tourist area, but it is one of the "go to" places people book accomodations, eat & shop. Central Milan's Brera...More

Once you’ve exhausted the big name fashion shops of the Quadrilatero d’Oro, stroll the quiet, narrow streets around Via Brera, filled with everything from galleries to feather quills for calligraphy and great deals on second-hand Louboutins. Much more fun (and less expensive!)

Nice place to walk or have lunch, drink or coffee. Cute little streets. About 15 minutes walk from duomo. Worth the walk.

Brera

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

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
