"Navigli and the canals" Naviglio Grande Tip by MalenaN
Naviglio Grande, Milan: 15 reviews and 36 photos
Navigli is a district in the south of Milan where you can find many restaurants, bars, art galleries and antique shops. There is an antique market by the canals the last Sunday every month in September to June. It is a nice area to walk around in.
In Navigli you can see some of Milan?s old canals. Already in 1177 construction of the first canal, Naviglio Grande, was begun. More canals were built (they were five all together) after that and Navigli became a busy harbour district where goods were coming to Milan or shipped away on barges. Today there is no traffic on the canals and the big barges by the canal have been turned into restaurants and nightclubs.
