The Milanese Montmartre

On warm evenings during spring and summer, street vendors and fortune tellers wander the narrow cobblestoned streets of Brera tendering their wares. Sophisticated, charming, and even a little romantic, Brera is historically known as the bohemian/artists’ district in Milan, mostly due to the influence of the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera and the prestigious Pinacoteca di Brera. Both the academy and painting museum are located in Palazzo Brera, the district’s main architectural landmark. Brera is a welcome departure from the tourist main drag – simply wandering the streets can make for a relaxing day. Feel free to explore the off-beat boutiques and unique restaurants. Other attractions include the Orto Botanico di Brera and the Osservatorio Astronomico di Brera, both offering free admission.
