Cute little side street with a small canal near the Naviglio Grande. It's not exceptional but a curiosity, as you can still see the stones where the laundry was done in the old times. All the area is worth the visit and worth a nice...More
The canals are a lovely stroll and this small cul-de-sac has a small stream running to it's side and some vintage style houses. There was a bit of building work going on at the bottom of the turning and overall it wasn't that impressive.
Words are not worth anyone's inner emotion. For any Milan-born person this is simply the place where you feel to walk thruough the alleys of Milan in the XIX century. Just need to read Alessandro Manzoni's "The Betrothed" before to go...
This is a characteristic corner on a small opening along Naviglio Grande. It used to be the washhouse.... The spot is nice for pictures, only if not too crowded.... Definitely worthy a quick stop. Some ateliers are in the alleys close by.

The Navigli is part of historic Milan. In the ancient days, the entire city was linked with canals, similar to Venice. Today, most of the canals are gone, but the Navigli remains a canal-based neighborhood. There are two major canals: Naviglio Pavese and Naviglio Grande. The Naviglio Grande's bridges greet visitors at dusk with an amazing view. The Navigli district specializes in clubs, cafes, and vintage shops. Lifestyle reigns
supreme here. You can start the walk from the Colonne di San Lorenzo, an antique colonnade in front of the Basilica di San Lorenzo. During the daytime, this place acts as a meeting point for artists and students reading books or chatting with friends; the nights turn it into a stepping-stone for club hoppers. Science lovers will also relish the opportunity to visit the Science and Technology National Museum Leonardo Da Vinci, showcasing inventions of the Italian genius.
