You can stroll for hours in Brera. Nice shops, restaurants, cafés and bars. It is totally different to visit by day and by night....and it is never so full of people as in the city centre.

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

Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high

Brera is not that big. You can find the center of activity along via Fiori Chiari but every street near that one has some appeal for people watching and food. Go 2-3 streets in any direction and there is more. Via Madonnina... More
