When you’ve had your sartorial fill, head to Navigli

The oldest district in Milan is having a resurgence; the neighbourhood is decidedly relaxed, as cocktail bars intertwine with galleries, antique shops and, of course, some of the best aperitivo in Italy. Locals head here to to dine, and after Expo 2015, plenty of regeneration in the area means restaurants and the mercato are now focused on celebrating locally sourced food and gourmet delights.

Top tip:

Friday and Saturdays will be the most crowded, but they’re also the best for people watching when the bars spill onto the streets.
