It consists of a spacious living room with sofa bed and a TV, a well-equipped kitchen complete with dishwasher and microwave, a master bedroom and a comfortable bathroom with bathtub and washing machine.
The apartment is very bright and has one of the most spectacular views of Milan. It is situated directly on the Naviglio Grande. Along the canal – right on your doorstep - you can find all kinds of restaurants where you can enjoy the typical Italian cuisine but also special dishes of Milan.
On the Naviglio Grande there are also many trendy bars where can you relax while drinking an aperitif accompanied by a rich buffet for which Milan is known.
In a pleasant 5-minute walk along the Naviglio Grande you can reach the Darsena, the old harbour of Milan, which was completely renovated for the Expo 2015 where you can relax sitting close to the water. It is also a place where lots of different events take place.
The apartment is also right in the heart (about 250 meters) of the international hub of Design and Fashion (“Zona Tortona”), where you can find the famous Fuori Salone del Mobile and were many of the the fashion shows of Milan are organized.
Cinemas and theatres, like the very new museum “MUDEC” (Museo delle Culture) with interesting exhibitions are right there. Very interesting to visit (booking in advance is necessary) are the laboratories of the Theater of the Scala where the sets, costumes, etc. for the different operas are made.
Every last Sunday of the month one of the largest antique markets of Italy (about 350 exhibitors) takes place on the Naviglio Grande where you can enjoy exploring the different stalls. Every Saturday you’ll find a nice clothes market on the doorstep.
The apartment with its location is ideal for a leisurely sightseeing tour through Milan and also for those who are in town for studies or business. The location is extremely convenient for quickly reaching any destination in the city.
A few steps away you will find the metro station " Porta Genova ", taxi, tram and bus stops that will lead you directly to the Duomo and close to Bocconi University and Catholic University. A few meters away there is also a bike sharing hot spot. There you can rent a bicycle (€ 2.50 per day) and you can take a ride on your bike on designated cycling paths. The Naviglio Grande Bike Path is about 50 meters away from the flat.
A nice walk along the famous shopping streets Corso Genova and Via Torino takes you in 20 minutes directly to the Cathedral (Duomo di Milano). If you prefer the tram the number 2 stops right in front of the building and brings you directly to the Center (Duomo) in a few minutes (9 stops), from early in the morning until late at night.

Reviews of this property
Thank you, Karin, for being a most charming and accommodating hostess, even ahead of our stay. Choosing your apartment for our stay in Milan was a pure stroke of luck. It was very light and comfortable with all the amenities for a short or extended stay available,
but the best about it was its location:
- in the most "with it" district in Milan at the top of Naviglio Grande pulsating with life in its bars, pubs, restaurants and markets;
- with the fashion scene expanded into the Tortona area just across the old railway tracks
- within half an hour's walking distance - if you're so inclined to absorb a city's atmosphere - of Milan's most interesting sights;
otherwise with Tram #2 to the Cathedral right in front of the door or the Metro station 100 m down the road
- two small supermarkets within a short walking distance
Whenever we should repeat a visit to Milan, there is nowhere else we would want to stay, hoping that the flat would be available at the time, and can only wholeheartedly recommend friends and other interested parties to do likewise.
Fueron muy amables, el apartamento estaba muy limpio y cuidado, ademas de equipado y lo pasamos muy bien ya que está ubicado en una zona estupenda y bien comunicada y siempre nos ofrecieron su ayuda para guiarnos por la ciudad.
We had a lovely stay in Milan and in this apartment, it was very well suited near the canal. The apartment was very comfortable for 2 persons, and had a perfect view over the canal from the little balcony.
notre hôtesse nous a accueilli avec beaucoup de chaleur et de gentillesse.
Une bouteille de vin nous a été offerte: intention très délicate .
Die Wohnung war sehr sauber und war komfortabel eingerichtet. Karin war in allen Fragen behilflich, die Kommunikation mit ihr war angenehm. Wir haben uns wohlgefühlt. Ich würde die Wohnung an Freunde weiterempfehlen.
Sehr schöne Wohnung in malerischer Lage am Naviglio Grande! Sehr zu empfehlen für einen kurzen oder längeren Mailand-Aufenthalt, da man sich in der Wohnung sehr wohl und ungestört fühlt. Alles, was man braucht, ist vorhanden.
Abends kann man gut ausgehen, da man mitten im Naviglio-Viertel wohnt. Trotzdem ist es in der Wohnung ruhig. Sehr gute Verkehrsanbindung mit Tram, Bus, Metro und Bahn.
This really is a charming flat. Located in a very nice area. The neighbourhood is great with all kind of terraces and bars. The flat is well equipped and good air-conditioned. On the profile it says they have 2 bedrooms. I think it should say: 1 bedroom and 1 sofa for two in de Livingroom. There is no second bedroom. Karen was very nice and kept contact by Wimdu mail during our stay. Therefor it was easy to ask the things we wanted to know. If I ever go to Milan again I definitely want to stay here.
Karin's flat was wonderful and we really enjoyed our stay there in Navigli! The flat is in really good area, just a minute walk from everything in Navigli and a tram number 2 stop is just front of the door. A view from the balcony is straight to the canal. Everything was just perfect for us. Thank you!
Es ging mit einem super Empfang los: die charmante und hilfreiche Gastgeberin hat uns mit Prosecco begrüßt und uns alles gezeigt. Bei den Zeiten für Check-in und Check-out war Karin sehr entgegenkommend und so hatten wir 3 entspannte Tage. Schon vor der Reise war Karin sehr hilfreich und hat uns viel erklärt. Das Appartment ist schön und gepflegt. Es liegt dicht an der Metro (Linie M2), einfach vom Flughafen Malpensa erreichbar. Vor der Tür hält die Tram und man kommt direkt bis zum Dom. Man kann aber auch gut laufen, in ca. 20 min ist man im Centro.
Um die Ecke ist ein Supermarkt und eine kleine Bäckerei. Abends kann man ganz toll ausgehen, weil das Viertel Naviglio quirlig und lebendig ist. Es gibt ganz viele Bars und Restaurants.
We absolutely loved our stay in Karin and Abele’s gorgeous apartment. It's just exactly what the pictures show.
The apartment has the charm of historic houses, but is also modern and functional. Very well equipped, tastly decorated and very clean. It has all the necessarily items in the kitchen. The bed is big and comfortable, the bathroom is very pleasant as well. Wifi works perfectly. Also it's located probably in the coolest area in Milan, with a beautiful view on the Naviglio Grande. Full of restaurants and trendy bars. The flat is also very central (a 20 minute walk to the Duomo of Milano) and it is only few steps from the metro so it is very easy to get around. We arrived at the Central Station and to reach the flat we had to take only the underground line, the Linea 2 - green line, without having to change. That was very comfortable for us. Karin and Abele are really great hosts, very available, always answering our questions very quickly and they recommended places to go for a dinner or a drink or interesting and "secret"places to visit. So if we come back to Milan, we definitely would stay here again. Highly recommended!!!
