MILAN'S BRERA MUSEUM
Visit the Pinacoteca di Brera in Milan, one of Italy's most important museums, famed for its prestigious collections of ancient and modern painting.
Enjoy a guided tour of the gallery’s ancient paintings, 19th century artwork and modern Italian art.
The Pinacoteca di Brera is located in the great palace of Brera, home to other institutions including the national library of
Braidense, the academy of fine art and the astronomical observatory. The fame of the Pinacoteca is due to large canvases from Lombardy,
Veneto and Emilia Romagna, such as the famous masterpieces by Piero della Francesca, Giovanni Bellini,
Mantegna, Raphael, Tintoretto and Caravaggio.
Surrounding the Pinacoteca di Brera, the Quartiere neighbourhood, including the magnificent church of
San Marco is one of the oldest in Milan. The area, rich in history, art and culture makes it one of the most distinctive
and fascinating places to visit in the city. There are many art galleries and historic bars with outdoor tables
which were once "literary cafes" frequented by artists and students of the Academy.
