Navigli district of Milan

Navigli district of Milan

The Navigli are a system of canals and waterways whose construction lasted 7 centuries (from XII to XIX century) that connected the lake Maggiore, the lake Como, the Ticino river and the Po river and also connecting Milan with Switzerland, North Eastern and Western Europe and to the sea and irrigate and productive huge areas. Now the Navigli area is a very popular place for Milanese citizens and one of the best moments to go there is at sunset that is when you can find a very romantic atmosphere with the sun reflecting in the water of the canals. We suggest visiting the Vicolo Lavandai, a beautiful corner where washerwomen used to wash clothes. The Navigli are also a wonderful place where to take a stroll during the day and we suggest you having lunch in one of the many restaurants.
