Navigli District

The Navigli District is a much-loved district in Milano, known for its quirky charm and lively nightlife scene. You can stroll along the banks of the Naviglio Grande and the Naviglio Pavese, stopping off for a drink or for some shopping in the many artisan and indie shops along the way. 
The Navigli were originally man-made navigable canals used for the transport of goods and passengers as well as for irrigation: it is said that, in the past, the city was almost like a landlocked Venice, crisscrossed by waterways that are now invisible under paved roads. It was along these same waterways that the marble blocks for the construction of the Duomo were transported right into the city centre. Inevitably, the canals were eventually filled over to enable vehicle traffic to circulate, but the original charm still survives in the specific Navigli area nevertheless.
