Hearting Milan’s Pinacoteca di Brera Museum & More with AmaMi Card

I’m sorry to say I didn’t notice which exact street these hearts were on, so if you’re ever in Milan, you’ll just have to wander around until you find it:

I do remember they were in the general vicinity of the Pinacoteca di Brera gallery (more photos and info coming), and indeed the time stamps on my photos tell me it was about a six-minute walk from those hearts to the museum.

The Pinacoteca di Brera, by the way, is one of the fabulous museums you can visit through the AmaMi card, which gives you discounts at nearly 20 museums, various stores, and cultural events as well as free transport on the metro:

And it fits so well with Love Thursday to boot!

As the website says: “AmaMi card: 25 euros and 48 hours to fall in love with Milano.”

Happy Love Thursday!

    Such a lovely, dreamy photo… ~Tui

    The reflection of the dude with the umbrella was just dumb luck ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. It rains in Italy? (hehe only kidding)
    Here in Seattle we’ve had 6 EXTRA inches of rain this year!

    It was actually snowing at the time of that photo, just about changing to rain with the temp change…was a lovely white blanket of surprise when I woke up the first morning in Milan ๐Ÿ™‚

    I can’t seem to help it Gil — they’re finding me now!

  4. You’ve infected me – I found some in Edinburgh and took a picture for you. ๐Ÿ˜›

    MILAN is an INSPIRATION! I love going to the rooftop of Rinascente (department store) at sunset, and settling in at Obika (mozzarella bar)–the view of the Duomo from there is amazing!

    That’s exactly where we had lunch, Susan! We couldn’t sit outside because of the weather, but we went out for the view afterwards…wonderful!

  6. Michelle, your photos and musings make me want to go back to Italy very very soon!

    Excellent! Thanks for stopping by ๐Ÿ™‚
