Navigli District, Milan

4.0
#1 of 13 in Neighborhoods in Milan
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.  To visit Navigli District on your holiday in Milan, and find out what else Milan has to offer, use our Milan trip planner .

    In the Navigli district, there are a large number of good bars, restaurants, the tastiest ice of town, a love looks bridge and much more. The bars serve here to a cocktail snack from the buffet at reasonable prices - cocktail + buffet between 8-11 euro - great selection of drinks and snacks.

Where to stay in Milan

For a quintessential Milanese experience, stay in the bustling heart of the old town. This area offers easy foot access to most of Milan's main sites, as well as some of the city's finest restaurants, shops, and theaters. The central area is also quite crowded, and comfortable rooms in good hotels can be very expensive. Visitors traveling on a budget can choose from a range of top-notch B&Bs and family-operated hostels, which offer private parking and access to private outdoor space, minutes from Milan's main attractions.
