Water sports at Darsena

Navigli Lombardi organises water sports along Milan canals.

12-14 June. Darsena and Naviglio Grande come into their own with three days of non-stop water sports and competitions, include surfing and canoeing.


Stranavigli, which is part of the Expo 2015 city events, also provides areas for children's water sports. Two of the celebrities taking part this year (12-13 June from 19.00-22.00) are Alessandro Piu, Italy's surfing champion and Airton Cozzolino Lopes world champion kite surfer.


The event is organised by Navigli Lombardi, the association of regional, provincial and city bodies that promotes Lombardy's historic canal system.
