Top ways to experience Brera District
The area
Neighborhood: 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 to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

Cute, clean, and picturesque. However, not many shops were open. Still worth walking through and seeing the architecture and little side streets.

Lovely arty and trendy quarter to walk around and get lost. It's next to the centre yet very quiet and relaxing.

A little bit away from the busiest parts and the Duomo plaza with smaller streets and nice shops and restaurants.

This place is full of people, but they are not Italians, we don't think. These people have made this place a den of not good character people.

It is recommended to hang out there and having a walk from the Duomo to this wonderful district that has a really Italian sense and elegant classic buildings.

This is such a nice part of Milan. Lot's of really good restaurants that the locals would visit. Had dinner there once, great food and reasonably priced. There are also many boutiques and shops in the narrow streets. The neighborhood is just great for a stroll, some shopping and having a meal. Very lively and local authentic feel.

Lively place that wasn't too far from our apartment, great food, and a great vibe in the evenings. Bustling.

Brera is a good area to eat like a local. You can taste from traditional pasta to pizza and have your Italian beer along with your meal.

Narrow lane and alleys filled with unique shops and restaurants, history and charm.

Grab a table on a square and watch Italy stroll by.
