I cannot understand why there is so much promotion about this area. Ok there are some nice streets and buildings there, but absolutely nothing special. A place only for tourists with expensive restaurants all around.

We visited on a Sunday and I absolutely loved the markets and cafes. Lots of second hand designer goods that you can purchase for a really good price. Purchased a vintage Chanel bag in mint condition for below €1k, it was such a bargain!

Lots of bars restaurants and clubs that attract milleniels in the evening. During the day there are lots of galleries, antique stores and boutiques for everyone else. Lots of alley ways to explore

While this is considered the art district, I wan't "feeling" it. Probably worth walking around, but nothing exceptional, unless you really want to create your own perfume scent, or pay too much for mediocre jewelry. This is a very touristy area and while there are...More

A good district to spend some time with a lot of restaurants/bars/coffee shop where you can stay and enjoy a nice day. Not a lot of things to see from my point of view, but for sure a good atmosphere.

Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where
tradition meets innovation. Here design and beauty
reign. On Via Brera there are the famous Pinacoteca
(galleries), the National Gallery of Modern and
Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior
design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to

Hi, Do you happen to remember the names of some of the cross streets in the area you are describing? I'd like to take a cab to the center of the area and spend the afternoon so I don't know where to start. Thanks.

Can anyone recommend any reasonably priced hotels in this area? We are just looking for somewhere to sleep really but a little nicer than a budget Ibis type hotel. Bar in the hotel would be a big advantage! Thanks :)
