A massive old city gate surrounded by a lot of traffic, but you can get to the port safely and look around and take photos. It is not very impressive, especially cause there were some spray paint graffiti on it and some garbage under the...More
In this area you can see the Porta Ticinese which is the entry point into Milan. There is an area around it but there are trams, cars, and cyclists who buzz around. We visited this area & then moved onto the canal area.
We took the number 3 tramway from the Duomo to get to the Navigli and it dropped us off right in front of the Porta Ticinese. Quite an imposing structure and a fitting way to begin the exploration of the Navigli! From the tram stop...More

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
supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
