This trattoria is at the end of the San Marco open market, so it's very convenient after a morning of shopping to pop in here. The menu is Milanese style, so I enjoyed the Ossobucco with Risotto and my wife loved the branzino (sea bass)...More

Brera captures the real essence of the city. It is an
excellent mix between history and modernity, where

Antique Art, and the Academy of Fine Arts. Interior
design boutiques and intellectual cafes are typical of
the district. Walking along Via Madonnina is a must to
