Memorable visit thanks to the guide
Jun 2019 • Friends
An interesting villa, but the highlight of the visit was the nymphaeum situated in the grounds.
A series of artificial grottos, all decorated in shells and stones, with further rooms decorated floors, walls and ceilings in fantastic pebble mosaics - one can only wonder at the artistry and man hours necessary to create this extravagance.
Be prepared to be surprised by the complexity of the water features which have been restored to their original working order.
An enthusiastic, interesting guide made this visit quite memorable.
Complete your visit by wandering through the grounds or the public park area where many of the 50 odd varieties of trees and shrubs are quite rare - some such as the Ginkgo Biloba were planted here in the mid 1800’s.

Five Star Attraction
Jun 2018 • Couples
This is a fascinating place to visit, we were part of a small group of 15 people and we
had a excellent guide. The original palace was started about 1585 but the Grotto was built between 16th and 18th centuries.
The surprise water features have been restored fairly recently.We thought they were fantastic.There are also lovely gardens.

An amazing surprise
Jun 2018 • Friends
If you're having a holiday in Lombardy in the period from May to October, the Villa and particularly its Ninfeo, a sort of artificial grotto, rich with stone mosaics, statues and awesome water tricks, is worth a visit. Kids can also enjoy the visit. The tour I did was long, more than two hours, but the kids had fun with the water surprises in the Ninfeo. It's also very interesting for adults, thanks to the passion of the voluntary guides who accompany you on the visit. I don't know if they do the tour in English though, call or check on the site. You can get quite wet, so go with nice warm weather. There's no café in the villa, I'd suggest having an aperitivo before getting in.

Perfect for a Hot Day
Jun 2017 • Couples
We only found this by accident, we were looking for something to fill a few hours and being quite close gave it a go.
First off an English speaking guide as found much to our appreciation, the group was only made up of five so it was a surprise when we got our own guide. Our guide informative and entertaining throughout the tour of the quite amazing buildings and gardens.
Being such a hot day we appreciated the cold showers and surprise jets of water springing from every nook and cranny of the gardens and buildings, I am sure the staff enjoy targeting a victim or two :)
A hidden gem which we would like to visit again some time, hidden away but well worth a visit.

Lovely surprise
May 2017 • Couples
The Villa was a beautiful surprise for us with the ninfeo and its water games. Visconte Litta was a creative, and playful man and the atmosphere inside and outside the Villa seemed so dreamy that made us feel like we were on holiday.
The touristic guide was professional and engaging.

Very tired and poorly restored old building
Oct 2016 • Couples
The original glamour is plain to see, but a poor attempt at restoration. We were made welcome, and had a guide to ourselves for just 4 euros each (I think we got lucky), but I wouldn't go back. We didn't visit the nymphaeum or the water games, which I suspect are the piece de resistance of the place. We may have scored higher had we visited those.

Romantic Treasure
Sep 2016 • Couples
The hidden beauty of the Villa Litta in Lainate was breathtaking. The picturesque garden made us feel like to romantic lovers in a movie, strolling along the gorgeous grass banks surrounded by breathtaking sculptures and beautiful fountains. They even have a greenhouse where exquisite specialty flowers are grown.
If you're looking for something to do while in Lainate area, this is a beautiful walk from the IBIS Hotel (which is what we did)

Exquisite pleasure.
Apr 2016 • Family
One of Rome's most delightful and refine address. An exquisitely sophisticated simplicity that will undoubtedly suit the connoisseur. Intimate setting. No fancy fanfare. Just good taste.
The restaurant has an equally exquisite cuisine. Italian recipes brought to a new high. A must when in Rome. The villa's garden is also an heaven of peace. Enjoy!
