Visited the flea market on 19Sep Tue afternoon. Instead of opening at 11:30 per website, it wasn't opened until 5:30pm while only a handful of stalls opened. Not worth to pay a visit if you are far from the location... although I would like to...More

We were excited about the market opening again this spring but it never happened (we live close by) Apparently the owners are having financial difficulty... Thought I should write an update in case people head down there as they will be in for a disappointment!...More

A nice easy and cheap place to eat typical north and central Italy food. Open also in winter, though I guess at its best in summer with the outdoor spaces and restaurants

A friend in Bergamo suggested we try the Mercato Metropolitano in Milan as an alternative to the sometimes higher-priced restaurants. It was a good recommendation. The Mercato is located in the greater Navgli District in the Porta Genova neighborhood just around the corner from the...More

I love Mercato Metropolitano and I love the concept itself. It is actually in a great location, close to the Navigli and I really love how it is organized. What i do not like is mainly referred to prices, that are everywhere too high. I...More

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
