This is an amazing example of modern design in the early 20th century. Built by the Necchi sewing machine heirs the house is an Italian Downton Abby. the problem is that the family gave to the Government and they have filled this modern house with antiques from other properties that have nothing to do with this property or its owners....

This was recommended by our local guide. She gave us a breif idea about it and really encouraged us to visit it, and I'm really thankful for that. Both my friend and I fell in love with every detail in the villa and was so amazed on how they thought of each and every corner of it. Great architecture and... More

This was a real highlight to our visit to Milan. It was a rare chance to observe the life of a rich upper class family, and have a snoop behind the high walls of a Milanese villa. It also made a welcome change from the more regular attractions, which are mostly very old churches. Definitely recommend.

A tour of Villa Necchi Campiglio is a remarkable enlightening experience. A contemporary of Art Deco, the architecture has few common elements and years ahead of its time in so many aspects. The simple, elegant monument-style exterior uses concrete blockwork in a maner echoing current construction techniques. The simple elegance continues inside, but now with the use of the very... More

the house is really well preserved, elegant and interesting, with some 20th C. history thrown in. The tours are frequent. They will provide you with an English tour, which is really kind. You can get a card allowing entrance into 4 house museums in Milan, a pretty good deal. Trivia: the movie Io sone l'amore was shot there starring tilda... More

Took us a while to find this place but was worth it. All visitors are taken on a guided tour which was in Italian therefore very difficult for us to follow until an extra guide tagged along and started to interpret a little for us. There were notes in English to follow also. The villa itself is delightful, small enough... More

We had a delicious lunch in the bright and airy lunchroom on these grounds. The villa is filled with beautiful objects and a great representation of "modern" 1930's architecture. It was an interesting view of the life of the elite in the recent past. The guide spoke in Italian but we were given a transcript in English to read as... More

We were tipped off by a friend that we should make time for this hidden attraction - a mansion tucked away off the beaten track. A rainy day made it a no-brainer and we made it just in time for the last tour of the day. It's an interesting point - so often you will visit an attraction and make... More
