Idroscalo, known as the “sea of Milan”, is one of the most beautiful places for a run near Milan. This artificial lake, opened in 1930 during the height of seaplanes, is about 10km east of central Milan, and near the airport. The 3.7 mile loop is easy to follow so you can enjoy your lush green surroundings while you exercise. While jogging, watch the canoes moving onto the water and get away from the craziness of the city.
Note: For a longer run, combine with the trails in Parco Forlanini, about 1km to the west.
