A reliable place TO STAY in the Navigli district? Porta Genova FS
This district on the near outskirts of the city, where two canals come in close to the center, still in the open air, has an interesting and dynamic societal mixture. Alongside the traditional poor people's dwellings are renovated and restored penthouses.
Working class people now live door to door with aspiring young intellectuals and upwardly mobile professionals and with the scattered offsprings of the sophisticated "Milano Bene" (well-to-do Milanese).
In the summertime, excursions by boat along stretches of the canals leave from the Darsena at Porta Ticinese. Information and tickets at the central tourist office IAT.
