Well, we had only one night in Milan starting later around 9 PM. This place was full of young and old people walking around the shore, talking, music playing, the atmosphere was stunning, lively, happy and musical. We had some local brewery beer and chose some local restaurant we like. Options are multiple! If you do not know what to... More

The markets were supposed to be on the day we visited, but they weren't. We also took a boat tour on the canal, which was relaxing but there isn't much to see. There are nice places to eat here but not much else to look at. Pretty disappointed with our day there, it was pleasant enough but it was nothing... More

We headed to the Navigli District on a hot afternoon and were a bit disappointed. We had just travelled from Venice so it was probably a tough comparison! I think it would be better to go in the evening when it looks like things would liven up a bit more.

It's a lovely are of Milan where you can enjoy the hot evening in the city, but you have to remember to have mosquito spray with you! It has a unique atmosphere. You can choose between plenty of places for a drink, or something to eat, or you can simply have a gelato and walk around the area.

This is a perfect place if you want to go out to a restaurant or a bar or a stylish gelateria (ice cream shop) and if you want to be near a canal and eat outside. In the evening there are lots of people walking round and going out and eating out so we just travelled to Porta Genove by... More

As our couchsurfing host lived in this neighbourhood, we decided to go out for a dinner here. Not sure if it was after some major event or a market, but there was rubbish everywhere on the floor. I liked the atmosphere though, lovely restaurants with seating outside along a river, a bit like in Venice. Not sure if I would... More

After a short walking from Duomo, we wanted something to eat, in this place will see locals and tourist. Along the Navigli are several restaurants and bars, where you can enjoy local food, like the rissoto, ossobuco, prosseco and many kinds of gelatos. Almost all restaurants have a nice view at Navigli and You can see all the boats that... More

A nasty tourist trap full of average restaurants with bad food and even worse service. Avoid at all cost.

Underwhelming-the water is really dirty and the mosquitos were so bad we had to leave without even having lunch. We looked around some but did not see any of the studios that supposedly are there.

Very easy to get to using either the tram or the metro system. Lots of seating to just sit and admire the views. Free Wifi. Independent shops with interesting items for sale. Market on a Saturday ( last Saturday in month) Bustling in the evenings.

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
Navigli
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
