About
This elegant and artsy district is a charming area in the heart of Milan. Here, you'll find quaint cobbled streets and historic 18th-century buildings, lined with fashion houses, cafes, restaurants, and galleries. You'll also find iconic landmarks like the Santa Maria del Carmine Church and the Pinacoteca di Brera, to name a few. You can even have your fortune told by a fortune teller—they're hard to miss! Discover some of the city's best street food in Brera on a walking food tour, or simply sit by any of the quaint cafes to people-watch over a spritz or glass of wine. – Tripadvisor

Top ways to experience Brera District
The area
Neighbourhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

After our day trip to Como we were after somewhere to eat so took a walk through here, a pleasant appearance and a few eateries with outside dining but at the time nothing that really took our fancy.

Maybe missed something but not somewhere I feel you need to visit unless you have a specific reason to be there.

This is the vibe you are looking for! After all the big shops and bigger (and exclusive) brands, it’s a relief to be in a cosy meighboorhood, with narrow streets, a great buzz and friendly folks!

Beautiful area to spend a day. Or at least few hours. Many boutique store for designers I’ve never heard of, which was a nice change. Places to eat or just get coffee are on just about every corner, lovely architecture, museums…. If you are in Milan definitely worth a visit.
