What more do you need? This part of town is busy day and night. And surprisingly not smelly at all, as you would expect canals to be at a city like Milan.

Nice canal. Very good restaurants in the vicinity. A lot of people though. Must visit; water and canal thus special!

It is not as easy to find this hidden gem but it’s worth the trip. Plenty of restaurants to choose from and it is ideal for people watching.

A few filthy canals, shabby buildings, and some badly looking bars. That's my experience of Navigli. Skip it with no hesitation. It's not worth the travel and there are plenty of other (much better) things to do in Milan.

we had to go for a long ride and then nothing was there, maybe in summer it is more active and coffee shops are opened

The Navigli or canals area has really been all spruced up. Lots of cafes, restaurants and quite atmospheric. Even the morning hours it’s a great area to take a stroll in. Lots of possibilities for drinks and food. The area by the main canal now...More

we came across this part of Milan by chance, lots of market stalls on weekends selling all sorts of vintage items.

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

Bergamo is a distance from the centre - suggest a taxi!
