Experience the best of Milan nightlife on the picturesque "navigli." This is the only Milan tour to combine culture, food, and fun as we eat and drink our way through this fascinating area. These ancient canals that once connected the entire city are now the heart of Milanese nightlife. Benefit from the insights of an expert local guide who will share insider tidbits of knowledge about Milan, and get to sample three wines (or another drink of your choice) and various regional foods as we stop in a variety of local wine bars and locales.
Come and join us on this evening out among the Milanese, in a small, friendly group of 15 people or fewer, sampling the Navigli Canal district's fine food and wine. We'll start the night off right, with a glass of wine near the Naviglio Grande, the oldest canal and the heart of the action. The festive spirit, lively music and beautiful canal reflections in the golden hours of sunset make this an irresistible location for an extra-special occasion.
Your guide will then lead you on a pleasant walk through the area, sharing captivating details from the past and present. Topics of discussion will range from what Leonardo da Vinci and Napoleon had to do with this area, to where to get the best Risotto alla Milanese made according to the original recipe.
Along the way we'll make a stop at a classy enoteca (wine bar), for more delicious wine, meats, cheeses and typical local breads. Here, everything is hand-selected from some of the finest products available. The bar staff and your guide will explain how these wines and typical local products are made and what makes them so unique.
We'll continue on past art studios, chic designer shops, bookstores, specialty bars and more as the light begins to wane and the establishments fill to bursting with locals. As the evening air fills with music, laughter, and conversation among friends, we'll head to our final destination for a traditional aperitivo. In Italy, an aperitivo can mean anything from a light drink with a few nuts or olives to finger foods. We're going to spring for the latter here! When it's time to say goodbye, your guide will be more than happy to make dinner recommendations. Be forewarned, however. You may not have room for dinner after all that food and wine!

Some history ...
Built mostly between the 12th and 16th centuries, the navigable man-made canals once connected the most important parts of Milan, serving as a defence, irrigation and transportation system.
