Navigli Lombardi

Milan’s Navigli, or canals, date back as far as
the 12th century when they were constructed to
facilitate irrigation. In the 1300s, the canal
system was expanded for the transportation of
goods, a use that continued well into the 19th
century. Today, visitors to Milan can enjoy a 55-
minute cruise along the remaining Navigli
Lombardi. Tour boats depart from the point
where Darsena, the city’s historic port, and the
Naviglio Grande, Milan’s most important canal,
meet. Strolling along the narrow towpaths is a
popular way to explore the Navigli neighborhood
