Vicolo Privato Lavandai, Milan

4.5
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.

  • In the heart of the navigli area, represents a fantastic angle remained unaltered over time. Time seems to have stopped at two or three hundred years ago

  • Location characteristic of 50 years, in the heart of the new Milan nightlife, many bars open during the day.

  • Here, in the spring, exploding colors. It seems to come during the flower show (see Naviglilive for programming) but it loses the charm because of the large number of people, which is distributed on the streets of the Naviglio. Better than a sunny day, in the morning. Walk and lunch to get up the Sun in one of the many restaurants in the area.

  • Such a nice cute corner in a smoggy and stinky Milan. Go around this area to find good food and a nice walk around the navigli
  • Very interesting historical landmark, side canal used for washing clothes.
  • One of the most romantic places in town. Beautiful in the snow.

  • A little hidden, a penalty not wear it more era where women or the launderers washing clothes formerly. You can see the arrangement of stones which, with a little imagination, you can see how they functioned. As I have said is a pity not to have that better signposted tourist information

  • It is not a local but a small alley where there is still an irrigation ditch where the laundresses went to wash clothes
