One of my favorite places to visit in Milan is Brera. It's cobble stone streets and narrow alleys are picturesque and full of beauty. Academia Brera hosts a musuem, art acadamy, with a historical astronomy look out tower, and a lovely garden that wafts of a sweet familiar scent that I love but can't place. Nostalgia mixes with awe and inspiration in lovely Brera. See the beauty at: Pinacoteca de Brera.
In Brera one can find exquisite high fashion shops, art exhibitions, ancient churchs, cool cafes, and next to the Academie is Cesare Crespi, an artist supply shop established in 1880, where I picked up some art supplies to entertain right brain creativity and the artist within.
