Top 20 Navigli, Milan vacation rentals & luxury serviced apartments
In the middle ages, the canals in Navigli were used for trade. Now, visitors can find bars and restaurants with small terraces overlooking the waterways. Navigli is a charming part of the town with colourful authentic houses, and since the area is slightly outside of the historic city centre, it provides a relaxing sort of village vibe. Navigli gets a bit busy during weekends with tourists strolling around the canals, also has a buzzing nightlife but one can also just relax enjoying an aperitivo among the Milanese. Vintage lovers will be thrilled by the antiques market, nestled between old bridges and wooden doors on the first Sunday of the month. One thing to know – this area’s quite central, and given Milan’s a busy city, this means that there’s always a fair amount of noise coming from the street, whether it be passing trams, roadworks, or something else. And as the city expands, there are going to be more and more infrastructure projects further out from the centre.
