Navigli and P.ta Ticinese, Milan: 5 reviews and 2 photos

Fondest memory: I was bored last weekend August 2001, so drove from London to Milan via France, & Switzerland, then back via Luxembourg in 3 days! It's great to see nothing's changed. Bar Magenta on Corso Magenta is still thriving - the restaurants along the canal near Porto Ticinese which serve G & T as 80 % Gin, 20 % Tonic are just as good, as is the all-night street market, on which you can buy incense, jewellery, t-shirts, and central heating boilers (I kid you not - I have photos!) while listening to live Italian ragtime bands in the restaurants.

Info for the mad drivers among you, I sat at around 115 mph for most of the distance, and according to the car's computer, averaged 75 mph for the trip, including driving breaks in cities.

Review Helpfulness: 0.5 out of 5 stars
