This is an outstanding Art Gallery located in Brera District. It has many beautiful paintings including various masterpieces from Raphael, Caravaggio, Bellini and Mantegna. I suggest you also get an audio guide which I found very useful in my tour to the Gallery.

If you love art, go. Make sure to see "The Kiss" and "Gesu Morte". It's worth the price! I suggest to go with an Italian friend though because it is free for citizens and maybe they can get you in for free too.

Simply stunning gallery, set in a great part of the city for eating out. If you do nothing else in Milan - go and visit the Brera, you will not be disappointed! The gallery has a selection of styles from mediaeval through to modernist, so something to please most tastes - 6 Euros entry fee per person, but concessions are... More

If only to see the "Pity" by Bellini and Raphael's Marriage of the virgin, Crivelli's Madonna and Mantegna's amazing lamentation of the Christ, this wonderful gallery brings many contrasting styles to the fore with a collection of probably the most important Italian works outside of the Uffizi in Florence. Don't miss the historical botanical garden behind the building! Ps: For... More

If you are in Milan it is really worth a trip to the Piancoteca di Brera for the quality of the paintings but the service is very basic. The lighting is not the best, information on explanation cards regarding the paintings is only in Italian. It would need a revamp, maybe a café too and it would get surely more... More

Concentrates on Italian religious art (as one might expect) but has plenty for anyone who wants to see a premier collection. Worth seeking out.

If you have never studied Art, it is worthwhile because it is not very big but it can give you a fine idea on how art has evolved since Medieval times in Europe. If you have studied Art... how could you miss Raphael, Mantegna, Bellini, Caravaggio...?

38 halls of art including great masters, beautiful museum, definitely worth visiting. It will take you about 1,5 hours to see it all. We bought tickets in advance for 6 euros each via vivaticket.it
