We walked to the Navigli district from our hotel near the Duomo. It took a while but we figured we could sit and relax once we arrived at the canal. What a mistake! It is not really a nice place to see. We took a boat ride through the two canals (?) that still barely exist thinking we were missing... More

Nice to stroll through, but very touristic and not so picturesque as promised in the guide books if you ask me.

Well away from tourist crowds. Funky shops, nice cafes, go see how the locals chill and vibe. Have wine on one of the canal-side cafes.

This is a lovely creative interesting area to spend some time wandering. There are many little restaurants to eat at and if you can make the monthly markets it is well worth it.

The atmosphere is very lively and has a wide range of options for drinking and eating. The tapas (Milan tradition to serve free buffet of starters when you buy a drink) during happy hours is great. You can spend hours here and not be bored. The setting is very romantic and its best to sit outside in one of these... More

This area was the highlight of our trip. We headed down for 'Happy Hour'; a stretch in the evening (usually 6-9) when drinks prices actually go up by a couple of euro, the catch is - bars put on a buffet which is free with the purchase of a drink. The whole canal area was buzzing! Great atmosphere, great drinks... More

The banks of this canal is filled with bars and restaurants. The atmosphere is casual and come alive after work hours. Is a quick ride on the train from city's center. My daughter and I went to Navigli twice for dinner at Luca and Andrea. Awesome food and for us, the first time we ever had an Aperol Spritz. It... More

This area is a great place to eat and get away from the crowds during the day. We had a leisurely lunch and stroll along the canals.
