  • Many visitors will enjoy probably already, just like me, the building - the way in is still worthwhile. Even if here to a large extent only religious painting can be seen and is worth little from other styles of visit for all those interested in art... The art gallery should be part of any visit to Milan

  • The Brera Gallery collects works of very high level from the middle ages to 900 Italian. Particularly focused on veneto-Lombard masterpieces by Mantegna, Bellini, Tintoretto, Canova, Hayez, Canaletto. But we also find Raphael, Piero della Francesca and countless other artists. Given the vastness of the Museum Council the audioguide in order to focus on the most important works. The tour requires at least 2/3 hours.

  • Now this is the iconic gallery of Milan, it shows us such little of the depository, yet there’s so much. The whole building is an art on it’s own, but the masterpieces that are hidden inside are even more wonderful. It is definitely one of the most important collections in Europe and really convenient, as there aren’t as many tourists as in Firenze or Paris, so no crazy queues. One has enough space and time to enjoy the paintings. There was even a small exposition on restorative works - with the possibility to see restoration-in-progress, a wonderful experience overall, one of the places you must visit when in Milan.
  • I felt the atmosphere of those centuries when this place was created. You can seat on a bench in front of statues and inhale the reality of time. Go inside to see the masterpieces of the art and feel ancient secrets hidden all around here. Will come back again for sure.
