The canals with their history and also their nightlife always arouse a great charm!
The tour begins in the neighborhood of the Basilica of Sant’ Eustorgio, one of the oldest churches in Milan. Then, between stories and anecdotes you will reach our boat at the pier in Alzaia Naviglio Grande. There was a time not so long ago when the Milan canals, crossed by boats and barges, into the heart of the city to transport marble blocks necessary for the construction of the Cathedral.
While browsing the area, you can admire picturesque corners and secret courtyards between the tenements typical Milanese, sailing placidly long forgotten traditions and ancient places like the picturesque Vicolo dei Lavandai or the fourteenth century, and double, Church of St. Christopher; you will see the bridge of “Retainer” under which it passes with the boat, and then reach the Conchetta, closed the famous Leonardo Da Vinci designed the Naviglio Pavese.
The canals are one of the most famous of Milan, animated every evening from happy hour until late at night. We will stop at Gino12, the first gin corner in Milan, where you will enjoy a sublime Gin Tasting Experience in a wonderful architectural setting.
Learn how Gino12 prepares the perfect “gin and tonic” and shows off the botanical flavours of gin in artful cocktails.
A guided tour is available also by boat, except in periods of dry, all year round: it is in the spring when nature has just begun to wake up, or in the summer on a beautiful sunny day, but even in winter, boats repaired and heated, offer a wonderful overview of the streets and canals, on whose waters are reflected the Christmas lights.
