Here is Brera: for the romantic, the bohemian or potential, those in love with happy hour or just for lovers. But also for the curious who get lost in front of the gleam of new and old shop windows, and the students who attend the Academy.
Via Brera and surroundings is a corner of inspiration in Milano, a city more used to measure, order, reasoning and punctuality, compared to genius and recklessness.
No, here you can let yourself go a little.
So it is desirable to linger to drink an aperitif outdoors in front of Bar Jamaica that recalls the Milano of artists who gathered to philosophize painting and literature, or stop at the tables of some self-styled magician, especially in the evening, and let them read your future.
Here, especially in the small streets of the surroundings, where it is nice to get lost like an enchanted maze, there is the discreet luxury of many workshops, shops, places that hide endless treasures, to be discovered and told. Going in the direction of Via Solferino, a few steps from Via Brera, you find yourself in front of churches that are a treasure chest of artistic treasures like that of San Marco.
Then taking as reference the entrance to the Academy - it is worth looking into the courtyard and visiting the precious Pinacoteca - you can head towards the centre up to the Scala, not before having admired, still in the street, some noble palaces in the city.
For example, you can admire the sober baroque of Palazzo Cusani, and visit some historical Art Galleries.
DO NOT MISS
The Brera market: every third Sunday of the month, except in August, via Brera and via Fiori Chiari come alive with antique stalls with jewels, glass works and modern objects.
