Make your own way to the Brera Art Gallery (Pinacoteca di Brera) at the Brera Palace and use your skip-the-line ticket to pass the main entrance lines, saving time and hassle.
Once inside, set off to explore the 38-room museum, working through the collections of 13th- to 20th-century art independently. As you look round, enjoy the 17th-century interiors of the gallery, which began life as a study collection for students at the palace’s Fine Arts Academy (Accademia di Belle Arti). Many of the most notable pieces were appropriated from churches and other galleries during Napoleonic times, when Milan served as Italy’s capital.
Roam through the rooms to see paintings by artists such as Titian, Tintoretto, Raphael and more; and view the works by Rubens, Jordaens, Van Dyck and Rembrandt that were brought to the Brera from the Louvre to represent the 17th-century Flemish school of painting.
Pause longer to admire the star attractions, including the atmospheric Supper at Emmaus by Caravaggio, and the Dead Christ and Three Mourners by Andrea Mantegna. Other must-sees include Pietà by Giovanni Bellini, and 20th-century works such as Enfant Gras by Modigliani.
Having explored as you want, your experience concludes when you leave the gallery.
