Top ways to experience I Navigli
The area
Address
Neighbourhood: Navigli
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 supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.

Great for a walk along the canal on a warm afternoon
Oct 2021
Great for a walk along the canal on a warm afternoon, lots and lots of restaurants along both sides to stop for a bite and drink. Nice place to escape from the noise and traffic of the city.

Canal with bars
Oct 2021 • Couples
Nice for a walk in the evening…Many bars where you can drink something. This is the opposite of the streets in the city where one shop finds the other.

Noisy clubbing area
Aug 2021
I visted I Navigli 7 years ago and was amazed by the kind atmosphere. Now it looks like a tourist trap with mostly noisy bars and clubs and few left of the original atmosphere. still worth a visit but better during daytime if you don't like noisy clubs.

Dirty river. A place for clubbing.
Feb 2021 • Couples
The river certainly looks quite dirty. This rowdy area attracts more of the younger crowds amd during this period a lot of them are drinking and clubbing outside the drinking outlets along the street. Most restaurants are closed.

Shady

Navigli has the vibe that evenings are beautiful. We had not seen this much chaos in parking anywhere. Group of shady characters obviously makes you feel not happy.

Great place to spend the evening
Sep 2020
This is a nice authentic local place to spend an evening in Milan. Plenty of restaurants to choose from. All look like they offer great food. Had dinner at a pizza place here and it was very good. The views of the canal around sunset are especially nice. Great place for a walk and people watching too.

Place to Be
Sep 2020 • Couples
Very nice area to be at the end of a day. Many bars and restaurants alongside the canals. Many go there for “Aperativos”. You pay €10 for a drink and get a (quite big) plate with food with it. Having a drink and go for a good bite in a restaurant is also possible. Pricing is Milan level, not cheap.
