Via Fiori Chiari - Balconies, artists and aperitivos
On your right is via Madonnina, dedicated to the statue on the top of the Duomo part of Brera district as well. Feel free to take a look and then continue on Via Fiori Chiari.
Walking along via Fiori Chiari I suggest you to take a look at the beautiful balconies and courtyards and imagine the alternative life of the artists in the past. Take a break in one of the popular restaurants or cafè, here locals love to sit outside to people watch.
This is the best place for an exclusive shopping in amazing boutiques or art and design galleries.
You can still see some very typical shops selling colours and canvases to the students of Brera academy and the bohemian cafè where they stop for a break between lessons.
This is my favourite district in the city, and I love to come here when the light is changing at sunset, starting to feel the vibes of nightlife while everybody relaxes for the typical Milanese aperitivo. It is our traditional habit to go after work with friends and colleagues to have something to eat and pickle before dinner and drink: the real local one is Campari, strong, very bitter and red colour. To understand Milan mood you have to try one!
