Milan has a dream that has never been forgotten: reaching the sea by means of the river Po. The city took the firs step in bringing the dream into reality by building the Naviglio Grande canal in 1365. The Darsena is characteristic for its Bohemian atmosphere of traditional residential houses and a large number of nightlife venues. It is considered as a classica location for evening leisure entertainment : indeed it is plenty of osterie, restaurants, pubs,ice cream shops and the traditional antiques market that held on the last Sunday of each month.

The main and well-known specialities are “cotoletta alla milanese” veal cutlet in breadcrumbs, “saffron’s taste risotto”, “ la cazzoeula” typical milanese dishes with pork and cabbage, and the so called “ busecca” beef giblets cooked at Lombardian style.
