If I moved in Milan, probably I would stay in that area, along the canals. Traditional and modern at the same time, in Navigli you can find bars, restaurants, finger food, patisseries and everything else you can imagine, for people of all ages and for all kind of tastes. You can reach easily in town center and, while it looks... More

we visited here during the daytime and were disappointed that the canals were so low of water and full of rubbish. The area at Porto Ticinese is being reconstructed and the adjacent canal drained The high light was the trip away which we took in an old tram to Conciliazione. If you do visit go at night

It was very disappointing. The canal had no water and construction everywhere. Looked pretty sad. We were there on Sunday night and it was kind of dead.

We went to dinner on a Tuesday night, and not much was happening as far as night life. The whole area is also being renovated now for the Sustainable Food Expo in Milan in May to October 2015, so it is a bit of a mess at the moment. I would recommend going on a weekend night, and after the... More

The tourist guides are lyrical about the canal district in Milan. The actual experience was a lot less lyrical. There are many nice food joints next to these dirty canals. The food joints serve food from all over the world and are not expensive. You can get a "happy hour" for € 7. This includes one drink of choice and... More

We went on a Saturday night, had dinner and enjoyed strolling the streets, that were packed with locals. (We went to Brera district few nights prior, different experiences but we liked both places). There are constructions and no water in the canal, so plan to go there at night for dinner, drinks, or just strolling around and people watching.

Some hotel websites and photo albums show the photos of Navigli canal with glittering food joints at night. When I went there in day time and saw the empty canals littered with garbage, I really felt that the people who eat food at the canalside joints are exposed to health hazard.

NAVIGLI is supposed to be the Canal District in Milan. Having read some tourist guides about the district, we decided to go there to have a "stroll in the breeze" along the canal and enjoy a good meal in one of the cafes or restaurants lined on both sides of the canal. We got off at the metro station Porto... More

I enjoyed my time. Initially an arrangement of waterways associated Milan to lakes and streams all over Lombardy. The marble utilized for the development of the Duomo was transported by means of these conduits from the Lago Maggiore close to the Alps to the middle of the city. Michelangelo was enrolled to help outline an arrangement of inventive conduits to... More
