Navigli District, Milan
(3.8/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
Experience the atmosphere of Navigli District, a bustling city quarter known for its vibrant nightlife and an abundance of restaurants, cafes, and shops. Once the hub of the city’s commercial life because of its network of canals, this picturesque district now draws tourists with its open-late eateries, trendy bars, and fashion boutiques. This part of the city is named after its most important monument, a Romanesque-Gothic church dedicated to San Cristoforo sul Naviglio. Some locations in this area can get a little noisy and overcrowded, but the real plus here is the chance to try some of the finest dishes the city has to offer, at a fraction of the price charged by the restaurants and cafes closer to the city center. Bring your appetite and a fully charged camera.  Work out when and for how long to visit Navigli District and other Milan attractions using our handy Milan trip builder.

  • I had been in Milan several times previously but had not never come to this neighborhood before. It is different, not so smart as it is the center of Milan, but interesting, picturesque, with millions of pubs and restaurants where to go to take fairly well priced, there are many shops vintage, some truth... interesting gallery. It gives you a different perspective of the city.

  • The hip was our home for our stay in Milan. With the channel immediately outside the front door the a special flair has alone. Along the canals, there are many restaurants, bars and ice-cream parlours. It can happen that one opens the door on Sunday morning and is located on a (flea) market. There are still some shops of artists and artisans who very often have their workshops in the courtyards of the surrounding buildings. Everything is then completed by boutiques and all possible other shops. In the evening, the restaurants and bars fill up and get super with locals in contact. Who wants to visit the city, but experience, for the Navigli is a super address.
