Milan: 1-Hour Navigli Canal Cruise with Audio Guide

1. Milan: 1-Hour Navigli Canal Cruise with Audio Guide

Begin your tour by boarding the new electric boat. As the boat sets off along the canal, see the "case di Ringhiera", typical houses of the working-class districts of Milan. Cruise towards the popular 13th-century church of San Cristoforo while listening to informative commentary from your guide. See where the delicious Marscarpone cheese is said to have been invented as you float down an alley of cheesemakers. Come across the historic headquarters of the Canottieri Milano Olona, one of the longest-running rowing clubs in the city of Milan, with a history of over 100 years behind it. Pass by the famous Vicolo dei Lavandai, an architectural wonder that in the 18th-century was in charge of washing the linen of wealthy families. Cross the Scodellino bridge and reach the modern Darsena, an area of entertainment on the water, full of busy bars, restaurants, and clubs. It is still today one of the main centers of Milanese nightlife. Float towards the Trophy bridge and finally come to the Conchetta designed by Leonardo da Vinci. Experience the 14 navigation basins of the Conchetta that connect Milan and Pavia. It is still operational five centuries after its construction.

Very nice walk on the canal. In addition we had the chance to be all alone on the boat it was royal! No audio guide but he hates a speaker to explain the main lines of the origin of the channels! To do!

Un giro carino per i navigli. Ero insieme alla mia nipotina ed è stata molto felice.

Super linda vista desde el barco. Estuve en Milán solo un día y fue lindo

приятная прогулка по городу на катере. Может быть, немного медленнее

Un agradable viaje en barco. Estaba soleado. la vida era hermosa
