This is a magic place in the very center of town. A bourgeoise villa of the 30s with garden and pool owned by a very rich family and designed by the most prominent architect in town at the time, Piero Portaluppi. Furnitures, fittings and also dresses and accessories are the originals and in beautiful display. The visit really make you... More

We were really pleased to have come across this villa in a small guidebook (not our main ones). It is only possible to look around as part of a guided tour, although we did not have to book ahead. Our tour was in English, by a very interesting volunteer guide who had a detailed knowledge of the building's history. The... More

We had a great guided tour in English. Really interesting. Unfortunately much of the original 1930s design was replaced by the family with a kitschier look after the war.

We were motivated to visit this amazing house after seeing the movie 'I am Love' starring Tilda Swinton. And because we could use our National Trust membership to gain free entrance! Our guide was a young (15 year old) Milanese with a good knowledge of the house's history which he conveyed in pretty good English. I would definitely agree with... More

For the visit of the villa there are only guided tours. Its not really clear when the tours are starting; you just have to wait your turn. Tours are given in English and in Italian. I think it depends the nationality of the group. We went there around lunchtime; therefore we had a 'private' tour with just another Italian guy.... More

This mansion allows visitors to experience the lavish lifestyle of the Milan's Nechi elite Famili at the beginning of the 20th century; the architecture and furnishings are outstanding and beautiful and the history of the house and proprietors very interesting too. The house is visited. In small guided groups, reservations are not required but it is advisable to do it... More

This 1930's Villa is definitely well worth a visit if you should happen to find yourself in Milan, with a spare couple of hours on your hands. Beautiful private home of the Necchi Campiglio families, with many of the original furniture / artifacts remaining from when the family lived in the Villa. There is also a wonderful collection of artwork... More

Milan is a city to discover. Not far from the fashion district a masterpiece of taste. Italy is famous for Renaissance and Classic art. Here you'll find especially art deco. And you'll have the impression that the lady Who owned the villa just sent out for a coffee ....

Had a very competent conducted tour in this villa with a knowing, sympathetic and profound tour guide. It's a fantastic example of design, architecture and overwhelming exquisite materials from European thirties. A very memorable visit.

Really one of the highlights of Milano. Beautifull villa that tells the tale of a city. Only guided tours. Not really for children or if you are not interested in history or architecture. Famous Italian movie Io sono l'amore (i am love) was shot here. Visit cost 8.5 euro.
