Cultural Thursday. Pinacoteca di Brera

Art In Milan.

One of the main attractions in Milan is Pinacoteca di Brera which hosts a lovely  collection of Italian paintings. The Art Gallery is set in Palazzo Brera, a building that dates back from the 14th century.

The palace itself is an imposing and beautiful structure that has suffered restorations during its centuries of existence. The history of this Palazzo is tumultuous and includes ownership from important historical figures.

Once you decide to pay a visit, at the entrance or at the front desk, you are welcomed by lovely people. Here you should easily find material to educate and will give you a good insight.

In the present  Brera Gallery you will find a variety of  over 400 paintings, all celebrating Italian art from early ages to contemporary.  As a bonus, in one of the palazzo’s saloons you can find private art donations, works from  international artists.

It takes 10E as entrance fee and half the day to enjoy the beauty of this piece of Heaven. I recommend it heartily as a must do while in Milan.

After your visit to Pinacoteca di Brera you can relax by walking around the little streets of the neighbourhood. Brera is my favorite part of  Milan. The Sempione Park is quite close too so that would make for  a perfect day.  

P.S.On your way to the park get some gelato! 🙂
