Vicolo Privato Lavandai, Milan

(4.3/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
Vicolo Privato Lavandai is on the banks of the Naviglio near the dockyard. Washerwomen worked at this ancient laundry service until the 1950s, cleaning the townspeople's linens in the canal. You can still see their wooden seats and cement washing slabs. You might stop for dinner next door at Ristorante El Brellin, which is in the old grocery shop that supplied the women with soaps and bleaches. The building retains the original fireplaces and wood-paneled ceilings. In this area of narrow roads and proximity to the canal, you may stumble across an interesting shop or bar.

  • Now there is a restaurant, but in the beginning it was the laundry in town ... run by Lavaindai (men) still remains the name of the alley to remembrance, very well preserved and renovated the canaletto with stones where knelt to wash cloths ...

  • Picturesque corner of old Milan preserved intact and still in perfect condition despite the presence of several trendy bars that are a thing of the navigli area, a hub of Milan to drink. Well worth a visit as is the nearby dock recently renovated and enhanced architecturally modern inserts that highlight the old structures from the period of Leonardo
