Interesting area of Milan. easy to reach by tram, and a nice place to stroll. This area is very up and coming and has been gentrified so has a lot of new bars and places to eat. Well worth a visit when in Milan.

Great place to visit. Lovely walks and very relaxing after a busy day in the city. Good places to strip for Aperitivo etc. We first went at night... then again Saturday lunchtime. Lots of little market stalls to browse and good pizza spot

Although in broad daylight the area looses big part of its magic, it is a great place to be for lunch or coffee, better for a dinner or drinks in the evening! The channels looked surprisingly clear, most of the caffes and the restaurants just...More

Just outside Porta Ticinese, this lovely walk along the canal is great during the day and vibrant with bustling restaurants at night.

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 ?
August 20, 2014|
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).
