The picturesque streets of Brera
Wandering through these streets, you will experience the beauty and charm of this bohemian neighborhood. It is no wonder it is the most exclusive and fashionable places to live in Milan. You will stumble upon art galleries, churches, restaurants and bars, but one of my very favorite places is La Pinacotheca. The building was originally a monastery built during the 14th-century. Today it is home to the Brera Gallery and Academy of Fine Arts. The Pinacotheca houses more than 1,500 paintings, including Caravaggio’s “Canestra di frutta” and the works of da Vinci’s students.
Luini’s is no secret to any true Milanese. An institution hidden in Milan’s city center. When you turn onto Via Santa Redegonda, you will have to elbow your way through an army of patrons who wait to bite into Luini’s house specialty - un Panzerotto! These delicious pocket of dough are originally from Puglia, but definitely one of Milan’s most recognizable treats. Christina will get behind the counter and find out what the is secret behind this delicacy!
