This is a classy double arch right in Piazza Cavour. If you walk straight down from the train station, via Vittorio Pisani, through Piazza United States the road bears left and takes you right into this piazza. Sightseeing tours will also go thru it, but...More

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
