Pinacoteca di Brera

The Pinacoteca di Brera is located in a 1615 building constructed by Francesco Maria Richini. The gallery was founded in 1776, and it holds important works by Italian and foreign masters from 1400 to 1900. Of special note are the paintings by Vincenzo Foppa, Lorenzo Lotto, Paolo Veronese, Tintoretto, Giovanni Bellini, Andrea Mantegna, Tiziano, Correggio, Bramante, Gentile da Fabriano, Piero della Francesca, Caravaggio, Rubens, Hayez. This is the permanent home of Sposalizio della Vergine by Raffaello, the Cristo morto by Andrea Mantegna, Madonna and Saints by Piero della Francesca and the Madonna in trono e Santi by Ercole Dè Roberti. There are a bookshop and a cafeteria, and guided tours are available. It is located within the city's notable palace Palazzo di Brera which was constructed by architect, Francesco Maria Ricchino, in a Milanese Baroque style.

Basilica of Sant'Ambrogio

The Basilica of St. Ambrose was originally built in 379 CE at the burial site of those lost in the Roman persecution. Restored, reconstructed and redesigned several times over the years, the basilica as it stands today features a Romanesque design of unusual proportions, and is revered as a stellar example of Medieval architecture. The interior is made up of a long body with three aisles that open on to secondary spaces and intriguing chapels that date back to the Sforza dynasty. Around every corner lie impressive architectural details and artistic embellishments like gilded statues, rich carvings, and other ecclesiastical art. Of special note are the ciborium, the gold altar, and paleo-Christian mosaics. Here lie the mortal remains of St. Ambrose himself, alongside those of St. Gervasius and St.Protasius, which can be viewed in the crypt.

Chiesa di Santa Maria delle Grazie

Commissioned by Ludovico di Moro and designed by Guiniforte Solari, this building was intended as a mausoleum for the Sforzesco dynasty, in which the remains of the duke and his wife, Beatrice d'Este, as well as others connected with the family, were to be laid to rest. The adjoining Dominican convent's cloister and sacristy were later renovated by Bramante. This is of particular interest as is the gallery's terracotta ornamentation, which became one of the main motifs in northern Italian Renaissance architecture. One of the most famous paintings, The Last Supper is housed here.

Parco Sempione

Characterized by still ponds, emerald green grass and exhilarating views of the main landmarks of the city, the Sforza Castle, the Arch of Peace and the Palazzo dell'Arte, Sempione Park offers some of the best visual experiences in Milan. Designed by architect Emilio Alemagna, the park is nothing short of a landscaping marvel. The Arena Civica, the Neptune-guarding public aquarium and the Torre Branca tower are also part of this expansive park. To add to its charm, visitors can also see permanent sculptures by Arman, Francesco Barzaghi and Giorgio de Chirico.

Orto Botanico di Brera

Located right behind the Brera Art Gallery, in the Brera Place complex, Orto Botanico di Brera dates back to the late 18th Century. An Italian monk and botanist, Fulgezio Vitman, worked for the establishment of this botanical garden in 1774. It was created with the aim of providing an educational platform for students of botany and pharmacy. Giuseppe Piermarini, of the Scala Theatre fame, assisted Vitman in designing the garden. Orto Botanico di Brera, today, is home to a vast collection of medicinal plants, ornamental plants and vegetables. A restored greenhouse, located at the northern end, is used as a teaching center by the Academy of Fine Arts.

Museum Poldi Pezzoli

One of the finest museums in the continent for its exquisite collection of 19th-century fine art, Museo Poldi Pezzoli has been delighting art connoisseurs since the late 19th Century. Get amazed by the masterpieces of artists like Giovanni Bellini, Guardi and Pollaiolo. Impeccable collections in the form of tapestries, porcelain, jewelry and glassware are also worth a look.
