Milan’s historic waterways keep a multitude of secrets. The city was famous for its Navigli, a system of canals that provided the city with water. These flowing streets were perfect for transporting people and goods all around the city, and connecting Milan with the rivers and lakes of Italy. 

Over the centuries, stories of Emperors, saints, witches, poets, and artists have been intertwined into the rich history of the Milanese canals. Are you ready to immerse yourself in them?

  • Explore the area where heretics and witches were condemned to death

It’s 1640, and tonight they will be burning a witch at the stake. You tend to avoid these spectacles, being a humble canal boat driver– that is, until the young woman accused of witchcraft turns to you for help. 

You must collaborate with her accomplices, pass on messages, and find magical objects to help her escape on the city’s secretive waterways that you know better than anyone. If there’s anyone in Milan capable of saving her from this terrible fate, it’s you.
