Naviglio Grande

The “Navigli” formed until the 19th century the city’s port district. Work on the Naviglio Grande started in 1177. A sequence of locks allowed boats to travel along the canals on different levels. Lodovico il Moro with Leonardo da Vinci improved this network in the 15th century. Thanks to the Navigli canals, in 1953 landlocked Milan was ranked the 13th port in Italy. Today, the area around the Navigli, is one of liveliest of Milan: here you’ll find many interesting shops, restaurants and markets. During the day the area around the Navigli is peaceful, with a village atmosphere.
