The Navigli

The Navigli area is now very trendy, though once it was famous for flea markets and walk-up apartments. As you stroll along the canals you’ll fi nd artists’ studios, antique and vintage shops and emerging designers working hard at creating new trends. This is a great setting for a romantic dinner or a drink with friends. The ambiance is very unique and offers more than shopping: take a moment to check out the ingenious fl oodgate system designed by Leonardo DaVinci towards the end of the 1400s.
