Sightseeing
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. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of theBasilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends.

Piazza Mercanti is a picturesque square just a stone's thrown away from the Duomo. During the Middle Ages, this was the commercial and governmental center of Milan. At the time the city hall, law-court and even a prison were located at this square. Due to its importance and central location the square was always buzzing with activity. And a market made the square even more crowded. Today it is not as hectic anymore though the intimate pedestrianized square does seem to throw you back to the Middle Ages thanks to its historic architecture.

It was built in the 15th century by Francesco Sforza, Duke of Milan, on the remains of a 14th-century fortification. Later renovated and enlarged, in the 16th and 17th centuries it was one of the largest citadels in Europe. Extensively rebuilt by Luca Beltrami in 1891–1905, it now houses several of the city's museums and art collections.

Parks & Nature
Situated behind Castello Sforzesco, Parco Sempione was once the preserve of hunting Sforza dukes. Giò Ponti's 1933 steel tower rovides a fantastic 108m-high viewing platform over the park. Also in the park is the Arena Civica, Napoleon's mini-colosseum, which he opened in typically flamboyant style in 1807. Now it hosts football and rugby matches, and the last stage of the annual marathon.
