Nice to see, but it was closed when I arrived. Good to see and take pictures. It is very closed to the city center, but small and surrounded by modern buildings.

allow me to start by ranting at whoever at TripAdvisor is responsible for naming this entry. The proper indexing is the name of the medieval church: "San Giovanni in Conca", of which only the crypt remains. If you don’t know it is there, you will...More

Navigli
The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient

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
