Visited first time. Nice cosy area with canals and local artists displaying their art. Great to get away from the packed Duomo piazza.

This is the area for bar-hopping when you are in Milan, very lively after the sun sets down, with many interesting establishments.

Start your evening with a good aperativo, you will have a ton to pick from, then as you casually stroll next to the river check some street stalls (not always there). Make sure to visit some desert shops to explore italian sweets. Then as you...More

A nice area for a romantic evening walk and an aperitivo but nothing to do with the canals in venice or amsterdam when it comes to architecture and picturistic views!

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

inter milan tickets..buy on the day ? (0 Replies)
Hi, we have only 1 day in Milan ( a sunday ) and want to do as much as possible. We would like to watch a football match as well, Inter are playing Torino whilst we are there, but may not have time if we find that the rest of the sightseeing takes longer than we thought. Can we buy tickets on the day and where from? Also we want to spend the evening in the Navigli district. Are most of the bars etc open till late on a Sunday

Navigli District to Milan Central Station (2 Replies)
whats the best way to travel from the Navigli district to the Central Station at around 2am ? are there buses still running that time ? how far is it to walk and is it safe ?

Response fromperilizia|
Why do you want to go to Milano Centrale at 2 am? The station is closed to the public from 01.00 to 05.00 The N6 night bus to Centrale runs on Friday and Saturday nights only.
Which Metro stop for the Navigli district? (4 Replies)
Could I please have advice on this? I'm not sure which is best stop to start from. My guide books says: <<south and east of Piazza XXIV Maggio>> Thank you.

I won't be able to "advise" you since I am also doing research for my next trip to Milan. But after checking on google map, it appears that the closest metro stop should be Porta Geneva F.S. But there are numerous tram stations closeby with S.Gottardo 24 Maggio being the nearest (this might be the one that you guidebook refers to).
