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

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.

Travelling by the Navigli canals was a good experience. The waters between the buildings were the memorable moments in Milan. I was enjoying the breeze and watching the buildings as passing through the canals. I would say that it was surely an experience no one can miss being in Milan. There I had best nightlife experience I ever had other... More

The center of nightlife on the area. Very crowded, many people drinking, young and older adults. Many places to eat, offering bargain on drinks to attract customers.
