I was here in november and i have to say that i was disappointed. The canals were drained and full with garbage. The bars and restaurants offer you for 10 euro a beer and all you can eat buffets. Not worth visiting.

I'm sure this is usually a great spot but not so hot during winter 2015 given the canals have been drained (as at January 23). The walk here from the Duomo was definitely worth it though for shopping, historic sights and plenty of great eating options at all prices.

Many pubs and restaurants area. If you are there early, there's many different types of cuisine, from Asian to western. Saw a few boutique shops, and it's interesting to explore. Just a pity that the canal is dried up.

I had a very "live" and charming evening in Navigli district. Very tasty aperitivo-services, in many of the restaurants along channel, and very happy people all around in evening. Beautiful view of illuminated channel!

This is a common area in the heart of Milan where you can bar hop all night. Many restaurants and bars along the canal. Note the canal has the water drained due to construction in preparation for their Expo Every bar offers happy hour from 5 to 9 pm with a nice array of snacks so you can skip dinner.... More

If I wanted to see polluted and stagnant canals and a largely deserted tourist ghetto I surely would not have thought of Milan. This was a shock after Amsterdam. Really disappointing, and the local bars have turned the wonderful aperitivo into 10 euro all-you-can-eat buffets with really unappealing food sitting around in warming trays. Like a bad breakfast buffet. This... More

There are a few cafe's here that offer excellent value - for Euro 10 for a drink, you can enjoy a decent buffet spread. Great food such as cheese, salad, pizza, lasagne, breads and spreads. Really good quality stuff. I had a long island tea and with the buffet sitting outside, it was worth an experience. There are about 3... More

Visited the area at night.was bit disappointed with it. Quite a small space and the bars and restaurants although lively didn't feel inviting. Thought there would be more canals, the one was a bit disappointing

Liked this area - easy to walk here from the center As others have said it is under reconstruction with drained canals etc - this is for Expo 2015 next year Still lovely scenery and shops. We found a lovely restaurant as well. We visited during the daytime and it was very quiet - I believe it is very lively... More

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
