Must not miss! Amazing architecture from the 30's that is just as relevant today as it was then. We went with Alice from Milan Private Tours, and she gave us a fantastic overview of the history of the place.

This is another hidden gem, locked away behind gates and walls that is not apparent from the street. It is worth a visit with a guide to understand the significance of this place and the importance of the architect and designers.

This house was designed and built in the 1920s to a luxurious standard and has been resorted to reflect the history of the family and the house. Beautiful furniture and artworks. I loved the glimpses of the marble bathrooms and the clothes in the wardrobes. We had an English guided tour which was excellent and lasted just over an hour.... More

After hitting many of Milan's well-known wonders that are hundreds of years old (and some even older), Villa Necchi Campiglio was a great change of pace. A private home built in the 1930's and rennovated post WWII, it reminded us very much of a Frank Lloyd Wright home. This history of the family that owned it, the occupation by Mussolini's... More

Constructed between 1932 and 1935 by the Milanese architect Piero Portaluppi, Necchi Campiglio Villa has survived completely intact, both outside with its ample yard, tennis court and pool, and inside with its rich succession of rooms. Architecture, decorative arts, furnishings and collections express as a harmonious whole the high standard of living of the owners, who belonged to the upper... More

Worth the visit. Pay the 3 Euros for the camera approval sticker- this house is an integral part of Milan's history. A lovely peaceful break in a busy day.

Very interesting and an informative guide. We heard about the political context and the life of the family. The art work would benefit from having the artists named.

This villa might not be on everybody's itinerary for Milan but its definitely worth a visit. It is beautiful and elegant both inside and out. It is now run by the Italian equivalent of the National Trust and we did a English guided tour with Paolo who was a volunteer. His tour was informative and excellent. We got to visit... More

This rather modern but very Milanese villas is an excellent example of 20th century architecture. I particularly liked the sitting rooms with the beautiful furniture and art pieces.

Wanted to see the photography exhibition - cruise ships in Venice and how they impact on that environment but, could only do so as part of a guided tour of the villa. Initially not keen but, hey only time we're likely to be in this place at any time. Glad we did ! Forgot about the photography and were captivated... More
