    Wir erkundeten Mailands Navigli-Viertel und lernten seine Geschichte und Traditionen kennen. Ein Abend-Rundgang entlang der malerischer Navigli-Kanäle, das Abendessen sowie das aufregende Nachtleben des Viertels sind sehenswert. Am Samstag schauten wir auch bei Tag in Navigli vorbei und wurden mit einem Flohmarkt und viel buntem Treiben belohnt. Unsere Tourbetreuung konnte perfekt deutsch und hat uns in entlegenste Winkel und Gassen entführt um uns die Geschichte der Stadt näher zu bringen.

    Relaxing walking tour of the Navigli district of Milan to view history - such as the laundry stones dating back to 1700 - mixed with modern life of bars and restaurants. View the Roman and Spanish boundaries of the city while exploring the 12th century canals of this former commercial port. The evening ended with apertivo enjoyed canal side. Salute!
