Walk along the canals
Navigli – Porta Ticinese43
Why locals love it
The districts of Navigli and Porta Ticinese have been important places for trade and commerce since the Middle Ages. Today this area is the heart of Milan’s nightlife, with many bars and restaurants staying open late into the night to the delight of both locals and visitors.
Why you should visit it
Walking by the canals is nice, especially in summer. The area is lively and full of bars where you can enjoy a cocktail or simply take a break.
Every Saturday there’s a flea market along the canals, and on the last Sunday of every month there’s a famous vintage and antiques market.
The Darsena Centre (a place to get information about Expo Milano 2015) recently opened on Viale Gorizia.
