Darsena is well worth a walk to see this revitalized area. Darsena is connected to the Naviglio Grande canal and was the center of the area. The area is more modern with many bars and cafes

The Darsena is a small lake area where 2 of the remaining canals, Naviglio Grande and Naviglio Pavese meet. Back in the 17th century it was a major port, trade and transport hub and the canal system reached up to Lago Maggiore. The area was...More

Went there on local recommendation and was not disappointed! Very lively scene full of bars, restaurants, caffes and people. Canal lined up with small bridges and easy to walk along. Lots of bars serve the buffet food when you buy a drink too. Great idea!...More

There isn't much water in Milan, but this spot is most pleasant and worth the visit. It is at the junction of two canals and is easily accessible by tram. There were even fishermen fishing while I was there. Nice escape from the city.

Darsena is the place where the Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande canals meet and this was an important trade and transportation point. Now it's a beautiful relaxing site where you can enjoy your time.

It's unbelievable to think that this used to be a non-place. Just a few years ago, there was nothing here. In 2015, the new Darsena dramatically changed the looks of this part of town. Now it's a must-visit, especially at night when hanging out near...More

Quite small water way or perhaps a pond or canal. Some nice place to spend some time. We didn't found much to do and see, but as a lack of park you could visit.
