What to expect

The Navigli canals are a magical place, where time seems to have stopped! Treat yourself to a guided stroll to discover one of the most fascinating stories of Milan and have fun in the most sparkling district of the city.

This experience is part of STEP, a selection of walking tours designed as a way to discover a destination in more depth, finding hidden gems, meeting the locals and exploring off the beaten path.

The tour will start from the Basilica of St. Eustorgio, a 4th-century Christian church, where you will visit the Ark of the Magi, a large sarcophagus which, according to the legend, houses the relics of the three Magi, and Portinari Chapel. While walking along the new dock towards the Naviglio Pavese and the Naviglio Grande, your guide will provide you with explanations and anecdotes of the canal network, the contribution of Leonardo da Vinci, the commercial activities from the Middle Ages to the 19th century, the faces of yesterday and today of the Ticinese district, and its musical traditions and sports.

During your walk, you will feel a unique atmosphere that only the Navigli area can create, a mixture of old, new and stylish ambience. You will also visit one of the most picturesque and historical corners of Milan: Vicolo dei Lavandai (Alley of the laundress) and you will learn all the washerwomen’s tricks of the job and visit the courtyard of a typical Milanese 'banister house'.
