Save a visit to this garden for when you're feeling overwhelmed by the pace of Milan. While it is not a very lush garden, it is an exceedingly tranquil place to simply relax; it's clear that a lot of care has gone into its planning...More

Nice and peaceful. Limited opening hours in August. Boron is not fascinating, but enjoyed sitting in the shade whilst children ran around. The quietest place in Milan.

There is a reason for the free entance: there is absolutely nothing special. The garden is very small. It is hard to find the entance. It is a nice garden but definitely not worth visiting it unless you are in the neighborhood and have nothing...More

A beautiful garden located inside the academy. Pastoral and soothing. A nice place to eat a sandwich or simply relax. Ask the locals how to get.

This is a small secret garden which you can find if you walk through the back entrance of Palazzo di Brera. Entrance is free and you can find some unique plants here including a couple of old ginko trees. Worth a visit.

Not too appealing to a plant person but a nice quiet niche away from the hubbub. Seems unkempt but maybe it was the time of year. Difficult to find - we had to really hunt for it.

Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high
quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch
expedition into a royal experience. Head to the
