Walks: My-Milano Walking Itineraries
Let's go for some walks. Join us on several walking tours of a few of the most interesting districts of the city. It is astonishing what you can notice on foot. Some of the most amazing courtyards are hidden from view if you drive by, but on foot you can indulge in taking your time to explore the marvelous sights, browse the small shops, hear the sounds, smell the aromas, touch the worn stone railings, the old wooden doors, the wrought iron decor, and taste a bit of Milan. Comfortable low-heeled shoes are more practical on the cobblestone or small pebble streets, but if being fashionable at all times is your goal, forget the suggestion, you won't be alone.
Navigli District Walk
There are a few important areas in the "Navigli" Disrict. The first we've written about is the Zona Tortona area which is famous both for its complete transformation during the annual Milan Furniture Fair in April as well as for the many fahion houses which have moved to the area and keep it "buzzing" during the many Fashion Weeks in Milan. If you want to walk the area, keep in mind that it is also exciting different during the day as well as in the evening.
Zona Tortona is described in three different aspects:
The Emergence of Zona Tortona
Zona Tortona on an Ordinary Day
Zona Tortona during the Salone del Mobile
Magenta District Walk
Corso Magenta is the most typical Milanese street - traditional, classical, elegant, fashionable but historical and very busy and lively. Take a walk along this street to get a feeling of the city as the "insider's" know it.
