The Botanic Garden of Brera

Local nameOrto Botanico di Brera
LocationMilan, Italy

A part of a larger complex to be found on the premises of Brera Palace, which comprises of the garden itself, but also of an astronomical observatory, a library, an academy of fine arts and an art gallery.

The garden is rather small, extending only on the area of 5,000 square meters. However, it is well worth a visit for its serene atmosphere and the hundreds of species of plants which grow here, including some very exotic ones, such as ginkgo trees. Its history began to unfold in the 17th century, and since then, it had changed owners several times, finally coming under the control of the University of Milano, which it belongs to today.

You may encounter some trouble trying to find the garden, as it is hidden away within the Brera Palace. To reach it, you must pass the courtyard of the palace and go into the corridor opposite to it and then turn right. The nearest metro stations are Lanza (line 2) and Cairoli (line 1).
