I booked this tour to fill up some empty time I had on my visit to Milan. I didn't really have much interest in visiting an Art museum, but boy am I glad I did. The tour started out with a walk around the Brera district which I didn't realize had so much history. Then there was so much to see within the museum itself. Our guide was outstanding. He did a good job of explaining the different art work and styles while keeping my wife interested the entire time. He provided a lot of insight and background about each painting and the painter, but did a good job of keeping us moving and not spending too much time on just one piece or exhibit. The two hours flew by and we could have easily spent another tour going thru the exhibit. Would highly recommend this tour, and if possible, as for Corrado.

Our tour with Laura was very enjoyable. She is very knowledgable and passionate about the artwork. We had taken similar tours in Florence at Uffizi Gallery and in Rome. Being with a guide is so much more enjoyable than the headphone tours or just wandering aimlessly. They know how to pick a good cross section of artwork and bring the paintings to life in their time periods by pointing out details that the regular person may overlook. It was a relaxed, very informative tour.

In depth guided tour of the Pinacoteca.

You need to have a strong back in art to fully enjoy this tour. We visited all of the rooms of this museum and stopped at the major works in each room. I thoroughly enjoyed it however my family members lost interest after an hour. We only toured the museum and not the Brera area.
