If you like markets this is the place. Fruit and vegetables, cheese, fish, clothes and household stuff. A lot of stands offer the same stuff. Especially the non-food section is very narrow and crowded. But I think it's fun and enjoyed myself. My husband didn't...More

Cheap Stalls - not much of interest Didn't think much of this to be honest. The food section was quite small - nothing like as good as Mercato di Via Osoppo.

The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient
days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar
to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the
Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are
two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande.
The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk
with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes
in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns
