Living in Brera

It is hard to find a more fascinating and central area than Brera, a neighborhood a few meters from the cathedral and the castle Sforzesco, whose name is irremediably related to art. It is located in the heart of the area that houses the Academy of Fine Arts and the Brera Pinacoteca. Unfortunately, only a handful of the many artists who resided in the area until recently, although some beautiful private galleries can still be seen in a unique environment.

Brera counts on several indispensable places for creative professionals who look for tools of work, as well as bars as old as Jamaica, located in the Brera street. If it's too crowded for your taste, you have other options on Via Fiori Chiari for a drink. Finding cheap flats in Brera can be tricky, if not impossible, and its central location makes it a very accessible neighborhood.
