Workshop – Navigli District

The Navigli District

The Navigli district of Milan is one of the most famous areas of Milano which is really worth visiting, they are charming and base of one of the main area in the Milan–nightlife (aperitivos and bars).

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.
There are many plan to make it a no traffic zone all year long (in summer time it already is) so it’s nice to walk. In particular we suggest visiting the Vicolo Lavandai, a beautiful corner where washerwomen used to wash clothes.
