You can see almost all art history there, Piero della Francesca, Veronese, Tintoretto, Caravaggio in a huge beautiful Museum. Take time to see art without being in a hurry, choose a phone guide and you will have a very especial trip through Time.

Although the monumental statues of Napoleon have little in common with the historical person, the collection of Italian paintings assembled by Napoleon is stunning. The supplements to the collection, including 20th century pieces, are well selected. The place is a remarkable effort in conservation, display...More

Located in Brera you can find a very good art gallery with some of the most important Italian painters. Visit the site because the normal entry costs 10€ but there are days that will only cost 2€ after 6.pm to 10.pm.

I'm probably spoiled by world class art in famous museums. This museum did have a few pieces I really liked including Canaletto's Venice paintings, but the cost was a little steep to view the the collection.

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

You should ask to the ticket office at the place to be sure. There is no need to buy tickets in advance because it's not a crowded museum even if it has lots of great painting of well known renassance artist. Enjoy your trip!
