7. Walk along the canals of Navigli
When we think about Italy and canals, Venice is the first city that comes to mind, right? However, Milan has a small network of canals as well. The area of Navigli is one of the most peaceful parts of Milan. One of the canals was designed by Leonardo da Vinci and there are many boat trips in the summer time. The banks are lined with stores, restaurants and small cafes. Navigli has an amazing atmosphere daytime and evening as well!
