Until the th century, the Porta Ticinese district, consisting of a dense network of navigli (canals), was considered the port area of Milan. The Navigli district is one of the most characteristic of Milan. Its bridges and its boxes di ringhiera (typical Milanese houses characterized by internal courtyards surrounded by balconies with flower railings) make us discover the old face of the city, which is now virtually extinct. For the sake of tradition, don't miss a tour at the Vicolo de'Lavandai, a small alley on Naviglio Grande, where you can still see a th century washing machine. In the evening, the Navigli district is very popular with young Milanese people. There are numerous bars, cafés and typical restaurants and, during the summer months, there are bars and terraces along the banks, making Navigli an ideal place for the walk and the dredge.
