This is a lovely tranquil place to enjoy a quick stroll while in the area. Make sure to go into the inner courtyard. There are a couple of small local non-touristic cafés nearby, too.

I'd recommend to step in: ancient kloster, nice atmosphere, you can see real life and Italian youth, professors. Right next to St. Ambrose Basilica.

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. Lifestyle reigns
