The secret cloisters of the Renaissance

Our tour takes us to three absolutely beautiful and fascinating historic churches in the Brera district,
right in the heart of Milan. We’ll visit the magnificent Santa Maria del Carmine, San Simpliciano and Santa Maria Incoronata, where the centuries of architecture have composed the pure forms of Milanese Renaissance style into an intriguing palimpsest. With their beautifully balanced proportions, these buildings awe you with atmospheres full of culture and spirituality. This itinerary is ideal for anyone who wants to explore the development of Renaissance art and architecture in Milan by quietly walking through the elegant dignity of secluded cloisters under majestic vaulted ceilings suspended in time.
