Navigli Darsena Canal Cruise
About this experience
Enjoy this leisurely cruise on the canals in Milan to admire some of the most charming and romantic views of the city from an unusual perspective. The iconic Navigli of Milan are waiting for you!
Our cruise will start at Alzaia Naviglio Grande, 4 near the lovely Porta Ticinese.
The first extent of navigation will take us to admire the Vicolo dei Lavandai, one of the many wash-along places along the Canal Grande, where the women for centuries have washed the clothes of their family: directly into the canal!
Continuing the cruise we will meet the monumental complex of St. Christopher, an unusual and charming complex composed of two churches.
The oldest, the one on the left, stood along the route to Milan from the Lomellina area at a point where there was an obligatory crossing of the waterways.
The first church was reconstructed in the Romanesque period (precisely in 1192) and underwent significant restoration in the 14th century, just like the Naviglio Grande as a whole that has been reshaped during that period.
We will go back and passing under the bridge known as ‘Scodellino’, named in allusion to the nearby taverns.
Then we will enter the dock, once an authentic port of commerce for trade with the Lake Maggiore.
In the end, we will come back to Alzaia Naviglio Grande, 4, our original departure point.
Do not miss this chance to admire Milan from a different point of view and get in touch with its peculiar history.
