When we talk about the Navigli district in Milan we refer to the area of the Darsena, the port of Milan adjacent to Piazza XXIV Maggio, and to the streets that border the Naviglio Grande, which connect Milan to Switzerland, and the Naviglio Pavese, which connect the city with Pavia. Today this area has been much revalued and is considered one of the most fascinating residential areas of the city. In fact, it is possible to admire nearby reborn palatial buildings that recall the Milan of the past. The neighborhood is very popular: during the day, as it is home to numerous markets (the last Sunday of each month is the setting for the important antique market), art galleries and artisan shops; in the evening, the lights of the thousand rooms and restaurants light up, making it one of the most fun and attractive areas of the city. NOT TO BE MISSED: The alley of the lavatories; The antique market on the last Sunday of the month; Le Scimmie: historic live music venue.
