The Basics

Brera is one of the most fashionable neighborhoods in Milan for a before-dinner aperitivo and a great place to experience Milan’s excellent food and wine scene, so consider joining a small-group food tour or wine tasting. Food walking tours are also available in Brera.

In addition to strolling through Brera and enjoying the scene, you can visit the neighborhood’s main attraction: the famous Brera Art Gallery (Pinacoteca di Brera), one of Italy’s most important museums, with works by Botticelli, Raphael, Hayez, Titian, Caravaggio, Tintoretto, Piero della Francesca, Rembrandt, Rubens, and Andrea Mantegna. The designer shopping district Quadrilatero d’Oro, where the elegant Milanese head to update their wardrobes, is also nearby.

Great time, great food, great guide
Georgiana was our guide for the day and was punctual and friendly. We were the only people on the tour which was nice and enjoyed the various stops. We tend to do food tours in each city we visit to get acquainted with the area and the food. Our favorite was the lasagna followed closely by the gelato at the end.

Brera district & Pinacoteca 2-hours guided experience with entrance tickets included
We had a great time and highly recommend this tour! The guide provided a lot of background and insight into the artwork that we would have otherwise overlooked. We thoroughly enjoyed our experience and appreciate that we now have free access to the Pinacoteca di Brera for 30-days. We look forward to going back soon!

What a fantastic tour of; arguably, the coolest district on the planet, Brera. Our wonderful guide, Merilla was an absolute joy and clearly very proud of her city and the food and culture of that city. The lasagne we tried was just sublime and the gelato was off the charts. Highly recommended

M was simply the loveliest tour guide. She took us to every local spot, and we learned so much history you simply won’t get by yourself or on massive groups. It felt so intimate. I’ll do it every single time

Brera district & Pinacoteca 2-hours guided experience with entrance tickets included
We purchased this tour through Viator to have a better experience on a visit to Pinacoteca museum. Out tour guide gave us a brief tour on Brera district, and guides arts in the museum. She was very knowledgeable and explained clearly. Especially she took time to go through all of the must-see art pieces in depth. She made our museum visit wonderful. We definitely recommend anyone to hire Viator.

Milan Food Walking Tour of Brera
The food tour was fantastic. Our guide, Georgia, was wonderful. She greeted us with a beautiful smile which never left her face for the entire tour. She was knowledgeable, professional, friendly, and never in a rush. We had a leisurely, relaxed, and thoroughly great time. The venues in the Brera district were very accommodating and the food and wine samples were representative of Milanese cuisine. We have been on many outstanding food tours in many cities, but none better than this tour with Georgia. She is a prize!

We had a great morning touring the Brera area and sampling delicious specialties of Milan. Our guide, Veronica, was very knowledgeable and friendly. My advice to others is to come to this tour with an appetite, as there was an abundance of food tastings throughout the morning.
