Milan: Wine and Appetizers on the Ancient Canals

Built from the 12th-16th centuries, the navigli, or navigable man-made canals, once connected the most important parts of Milan, serving as a defense, irrigation, and transportation system. Most of the canals were covered over in the 1930s, but those that remain provide a stunning backdrop for one of Milan’s liveliest areas.

The festive spirit, music, and beautiful canal reflections in the golden hours of sunset make this an irresistible location for a special occasion. Enjoy an evening out among the Milanese, in a small, friendly group of 15 people or fewer, sampling the district’s fine food and wine for 2.5 hours.

Meet your expert local guide and start the night off right, with a glass of wine near the Naviglio Grande, the oldest canal and the heart of the action. Then you’ll head off on a pleasant walk through the area, as your guide tells you about the area’s past and present. You’ll hear about what Leonardo da Vinci and Napoleon had to do with the area as well as where to get the best Risotto alla Milanese made according to the original recipe.

Along the way you’ll stop at a classy enoteca (wine bar) for more delicious wine, meats, cheeses, and typical local breads. The bar staff and your guide will explain how these wines and products are made and what makes them so unique.

Continue on past art studios, chic designer shops, bookstores, and specialty bars as the light begins to wane and the establishments fill to bursting with locals. As the evening air fills with music, laughter, and conversation, you’ll head to the tour’s final destination for a traditional aperitivo of a light drink and some nuts and olives.

Preis, Leistung steht in keinem Verhältnis
Für einen Rundgang an diesem Kanal muss man für das Geld mehr erwarten. 3 Gläser Wein und 3 Appetizer + Guide der zwar immer was erzählt hat muss mehr kommen. Das Bruschetta im ersten Restaurant war nicht das was man erwartet, in den beiden anderen Restaurants war das gepasst. In den Restaurants war teilweise nichts vorbereitet und es wurde schnell improvisiert. Bei diesen Ausflug verdient sich die Agentur eine goldene Nase.

Absolut gelungener Ausflug und Highlight unseres Mailand—Kurztrips!
Perfekt organisierte Tour im wunderschönen Stadtteil Navigli mit unserer äußerst sympathischen und kompetenten Fühererin Alice. Wir erhielten Einblicke in die Wein und Aperitifkultur und genossen den Abend in authentischem italienischen Ambiente. Alice hat weit über die gebuchte Zeit unermüdlich unsere Fragen beantwortet und uns nützliche Tipps für den Aufenthalt in Mailand gegeben. Der getestet Wein war hervorragend ! Kann den Ausflug uneingeschränkt empfehlen!!!

Great tour worth the money and time.
Loved it. We toured the area and received some history on the area. We also went to three different places and sampled a glass of wine and had small samples of food, just appetizers. But it was great our tour went a little more to the three hour side. There are lots of places to visit after the tour is over. The area starts really coming alive a night!

Charming neighbourhood, charming guide, good wine and fun people!
We went to a few different places, had a glass of wine (or other beverage) at each place along with appetizers. It's a good way to try different wines from different regions and also to meet friendly people!

Fun and informative
Don't expect this tour to be a all-you-can-drink event. It is a nice little discovery tour in one of the most popular place in Milan.
