Pause to admire the treasure trove of exquisite masterpieces in Palazzo Brera, via Brera 26, with an all-round sensory visit!
From the central courtyard, with the colossal statue of Napoleon, take the staircase to the Pinacoteca on the first floor where some rooms offer visitors design benches or stations equipped for drawing; reproductions of some of the fabrics depicted in the paintings can be touched or even smelt, and there is also the chance to listen to live string orchestras on the occasion of the Brera/Musica event.
For a stylish break, stay on the first floor and head up to Caffè Fernanda, a delightful step back in time with its refined 1950’s interior, one of our top 5 museum bars not to be missed in Milan.
To the rear of the building visitors encounter a magical space, the Botanical Garden, a sort of open-air museum with displays of exotic species, flower beds and centuries-old trees that change with the seasons. During the Design Week it becomes a scenographic installation and a verdant oasis, perfect for unwinding from the tour de force of the Salone del Mobile and Fuorisalone events.
