Lots of restaurants and bars along the river with plenty of interesting characters. Not terribly far from the city center. I went during off season so I didn't see anything particularly special about this area

It was the generic touristy spot that every city has - Like Matthew St or Temple bar. We kept getting continuously pestered to by roses or selfie sticks.

Try going around sunset for happy hour! Enjoy the sky changing colors over the water as you enjoy the Italian version of Happy Hour (they do happy hour way better than the US). Pick a restaurant, any restaurant, you can't go wrong!

One of the best spots of Milano. Walking around the neighborhood will bring you the real milano ambient outside the super touristic areas located closer to il Duomo.

Navigli district is perfect for a drink and buffet / tapas in the afternoon before dinner. The kanal sets the perfect surroundings for vintage shopping, old books, bars, vine bars and little restaurants. Definately worth a visit! It is easy to get there by tram or metro or even on foot.

I love it here. All the bars and restuarants are on either side of a huge canal. Massive choice of places, all with unlimited happy hour buffets. Summer time is Mosquito heaven though, be warned.

We visited the place on the early afternoon of New Year's Eve, knowing some places would be closed. Getting there from the center of town was rather a nightmare, as we needed to switch trains twice. Unfortunately, EVERYTHING was closed shut when we got there in the early afternoon (about 2PM) and the entire place looked deserted. While I can... More

Staying in Navigli

Neighborhood Profile
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.
