Pot hole
Feb 2021
The path is nice from Magenta to Abbiategrasso (nice section of path from Magenta to Milan) but from here to Gaggiano is a path full of pot hole. Avoid

Eating out in milan
Jul 2020 • Couples
The grand canal is the most well known canal out of the two (the other being pavese canal) because it had more restaurants. Both canals are about 30 miles long and are impossible to see all of it in one day. So rent a electric shooter as they are all over milan and ride up the canal if your interested. You cannot miss visiting the canal while in milan let alone eating on one of them even if its just a drink or an ice cream. I didnt do it but i heard the canals are best to be visited an night and if you are staying close you cannot miss eating on the canal for pizza or pasta dishes.

Romantic promenade
Feb 2020
Being from London, we loved that the streets weren’t too busy at the time we went (6-8pm - Tuesday). We loved the romantic walk, there were many paths to walk down with pretty lights.

geniune old houses
Feb 2020
a district with character at last, since Milano has turned into a huge shopping centre.
The minus is that the canals are terribly dirty.
The open market doesn't worth a dime.

places that you will never forget
Jan 2020
Great landscapes and wonderful neighborhood, fantastic to walk around and admire: the canals have been made after a project of Leonardo, absolute genius of his times.

Nice stroll along the canal
Mar 2019
Naviglio Grande is a canal between Milan and the Ticino River, located in Navigli, the most charming and vibrant area of the city. Along the canal, there is mixture of quaint, small restaurants (mostly cheap), souvenir/art shops and street vendors who put their trinkets directly on the ground. There were so many people strolling along the canal and dining in the restaurants in the winter and I can't imagine how more lively it will be in the summer.

Escape From The Masses
Nov 2019
Walking along the banks of the canal is a lovely way to spend a morning, or afternoon. There are numerous restaurants and cafés you can stop at to eat and relax and there are also some sights to see. It's a pleasant escape after the crowds thronging around O Doumo.

Great Antiques and Bric-a-brac Market!
Dec 2019
Great place to visit on a Sunday. Milan is quite hit and miss at times but this place is bustling and full of interesting stuff in the daytime on a Sunday and lively with cocktail bars in the evening
