This art museum completely exceeded our expectations. Not only did it have an excellent collection of paintings, but it was also quite visitor-friendly, going out of its way to educate the visitor and provide a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the workings of the museum. The courtyard of the museum is dominated by a statue of Napoleon, and for good reason. Milan... More

The area is one of the most beautiful ones in Milan. There are many streets where you can have a nice walk (suitable for baby strollers), many nice restaurants - cafes and boutiques. However the art gallery was a bit disappointing for me. First of all: Do not buy the tickets online!!! They are supposed to be cheaper (by logic)... More

The paintings are exposed in a good way. If you walk through the rooms, you get a good idea of paintings during centuries. Some great paintings to look at for a while. Great that there are chairs to sit a liitel while. Not to big, so you can see everuthing!

This is what you would expect from an Italian city like Milan: an art gallery with plenty of masterpieces. Do not miss a visit here!

Considered one of the best art museums in the world's most renowned country for art, it's no surprise that the Brera Pinacota does what it says on the guides: a treat for art lovers and novices alike. No real masterpiece here but a constant flow of excellent artwork. The price tag is quite high, at 10,00€ but still worth the... More

The Pinacoteca (and Brera for a matter of fact as well), should definitely be added to the list of things to see in Milan. As for one is it a beautiful and artsy district that attracts plenty of attention in the recent years and building on that is the building and its treasures a must see for art lovers. Worth... More

I loved the road till there. I started from Teatro alla scala and wandered though the small roads until I meet an outstanding outside view of Pinacoteca. You may pay an entrance fee, if you need there is an audio guide where people can learn what they see. This has an extra fee. If you like history, do not miss... More

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).
