Home to the Academy of Fine Arts since 1776, the Brera District is an artsy neighborhood that really comes to life at night. In addition to several churches, this district is also home to a number of antique shops and interesting galleries like Milan’s impressive and famous painting collection at the Pinacoteca (the Brera Picture Gallery). The district also contains the historic Biblioteca Nazionale Braidense (Braidense National Library), Museo Astronomico (Astronomical Museum), which is the oldest scientific research institute in the city, and the Giardino Botanico (Botanical Gardens), an evocative green space located in the heart of the city. A strong cultural life flows through Brera’s veins as it is the origin of a vivid nightlife complete with sleepless pubs, astonishing window displays and quaint fortune tellers.
