Tour Details

Can you believe that Milan was a "city of water" like Venice? Join us on the Navigli Tour to discover one of the most characteristic neighborhoods of the city, which alongside the ancient canals hosts corners of history and tradition, such as the Vicolo dei Lavandai, the courtyard of the Artists, the old railing houses and the shops of the past. When you think of water in Milan, your mind immediately runs to the Naviglio. It’s part of the city’s system of irrigation and navigable canals that embraced the entire city surrounding it; which gave it urban character, and guaranteed the functioning of transport and commerce. There was precious cargo indeed, as the Naviglio Grande was for many centuries the quickest and safest way to transport the marble from the Duomo, coming from the Candoglia quarries. We’ll also show you the Vicolo dei Lavandai with a romantic and ancient flavor that takes its name from an ancient wash house that still exists where many women washed the laundry until the 1950s. Interesting fact: back in the day, it was actually the men who washed clothes which is how the street got its name. Today the old wash houses have been converted, and we can even book lunch for you at Brellin, a chic restaurant with a fireplace and coffered ceilings, keeping the cozy atmosphere intact. What makes our Navigli Tour special: Learn something new and go with the flow. You’ll take home anecdotes that would never be expected from a modern and cosmopolitan city like Milan, which still hosts and enhances its history and traditions.
