Vicolo Privato Lavandai, Milan
(4.2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • A lovely antique of canals, this brief via a closed-end Fund, the old washhouse where women were washing clothes: Welcome to washer, imagining the toil of the past.

  • If you haven't seen it you should definitely go to vicolo dei lavandai along the navigli. As if by magic you are transported to a different era
