I look forward to welcoming you in the heart of Milan in a spectacular and recently renovated penthouse. From this bright spot I will help you to experience the city in the best possible way!
Find below some details on my apartment and the neighbourhood.
Overlooking the famous San Marco Church and right in the centre of the Brera district, the flat is on the top floor of an old restructured building "a ringhiera", a typical Milanese construction from the 1800. The apartment has been beautifully renovated with the addition of a cosy roof-top terrace.
The room has 2 separate beds, flat-screen TV, free Wi-Fi Internet connection and private bathroom with bathtub and shower. Clean bed-sheets and towels are included, while a cleaning service is provided twice a week.
The fully-furnished modern kitchen can be used for breakfast and small meals; you can buy your own groceries and Italian delicatessen from a number of shops located in Brera.
In addition, there are great bars and bakeries for breakfast just in front of the house and round the corner. I'm sure you will enjoy the warm and modern apartment and the unique position in the “bohemian” heart of Milan. I live in the apartment and it will be my pleasure to give you nice and useful hints on how to get around.
There is an old saying in Milan that goes something like this: "If you don't know how to spend a day, just go to Brera."
Between the castle (Castello Sforzesco) and the cathedral (the Duomo), Brera is one of the most charming and relaxing neighbourhoods in the City.
Ii is located within the Zone 1 (the historical core of the city) and it houses the Brera Academy of Fine Arts and the Brera Art Gallery, which prominently contributed to the development of Brera as an artists' neighbourhood and a place of bohemian atmosphere, sometimes referred to as "the Milanese Montmartre". Both the Academy and the Gallery are located in Palazzo Brera, the main historical building of the area and few minutes by walk from the apartment; this same building also houses Milan's botanical garden as well as an astronomical observatory. Within the area you will find little, shy streets lined with art galleries and elegant shops, quiet lanes housing cosy inns, sophisticated and romantic restaurants and bars (Brera is one of the most popular Milanese neighbourhoods for what concerns night life) antique and art shops, colourful street markets, as well as fortune tellers' booths.
It is one of the oldest, funkiest and safest neighbourhoods in town. In 5 min. or so you can reach the Castello Sforzesco, the Duomo and La Scala and the fashion district with Monte Napoleaone and Via della Spiga.
Transport & Connections:
just round the corner you can find the tube station with Line 2 (green line in Via Moscova) and Line 3 (yellow line in via Turati)
- Bus number 94, which runs through the town centre from Cadorna through Via Visconti di Modrone and Via Moscova)
- In Duomo you can find the tube/subway Line 2.

I look forward to your visit and experience the Milanese lifestyle.
