The area
Address
Neighborhood: Centro Storico
The pulsating core of Milan is in Centro. Duomo Square is enclosed by the gothic cathedral, the historic icon of Milan. However, shopping is what draws most crowds to this area. The classy and versatile Galleria Vittorio Emanuele II with luxury boutiques and high quality restaurants will turn any shopping or lunch expedition into a royal experience. Head to the rooftop of the flagship La Rinascente to enjoy the view of the animated square with a panorama of the Duomo. The Corso Vittorio Emanuele II is the street for high-end shopping. Brands of all kinds and street artists attract the attention of all visitors; while at Via Santa Radegonda 16, Luini Panzerotti is a much appreciated street food shop providing unimaginable culinary experiences. If shopping takes its toll on you, consider visiting Castello Sforzesco, a 15th century castle housing several museums. Those looking to relax can go to Parco Sempione, where nature provides respite from the energy of this dynamic and international city.

    Excellent guided tour, guide passionate about the Villa
    We visited the Villa in July (we are still in catch up mode for reviews) and arrived just as the guided tour in Italian was commencing. As we couldn't wait for an English language tour, we joined the tour as a detailed English written guide was provided. We were incredibly fortunate that the only two others on the tour were English-speaking Italians, who suggested to the guide that the tour continue in English. How kind was that! Whilst some reviewers have complained that the tour takes too long, it is advertised as a one-hour tour, and we greatly enjoyed hearing the detail about this lovely villa from our guide who clearly loved the building. Well worth a visit in English or Italian, utilising the detailed English guide.

    Beautiful and peaceful house
    A beautiful place to discover! Not to be missed if you like 20's & 30's architecture. Their tour presentation (website available at the entrance of the villa) is very well structured exploring each room one after the other. You can also enjoy the garden for a drink / snack. The place has been featured in the House of Gucci film... you will recognise the entrance. Also there is a special card that you can buy online which grants you access to the 4 private house museums in Milan (This villa as well as Villa Poldi Pezzoli, Bagatti Valsecchi and Casa Boschi di Stefano0. A great value.

    Skipped another tourist tour to see the villa - didn't regret it
    MUST VISIT, even if you are not an architect or into interior design. A fantastic place with the friendliest and kindest staff I have ever encountered. A big plus is that the audio guide is included in the price, so you can connect to the villa's WiFi and use your phone and headphones to listen to the audio guide at your own pace. However, I recommend that you befriend someone from the staff; they are more than happy to share more info, show you some old photos, or open some hidden doors... :) Too bad it was closing soon for a private event; otherwise, we would have enjoyed more in the beautiful garden and had some drinks.

I really enjoyed this. The Villa was completed by architect Piero Portaluppi in 1935 on behalf of the Necchi & Campiglio families. It is a beautifully preserved example of the home of an aspirational, wealthy family of the period. In contrast to Portaluppis' modern design is the Louis XV styling of architect Tomaso Buzzi who was invited post war to make changes. The Villa was bequeathed by the family to the FAI, a National Trust style organisation. The guides I believe, are volunteers & the gentleman assigned to give me the low down on the villa had excellent English skills & extensive knowledge. I was left to explore the further rooms, with guides on hand if required. It’s possible to download an English information guide onto your phone on arrival. It takes around an hour to look round & is very central. There is a sweet little cafe on site.

This lovely Art Nouveau villa is probably not on the Hit List of the first-time visitor to Milan, but it deserves to be. It is delightful - quiet and peaceful and full of beautiful objects and artefacts, all in the setting of a 1930s villa specifically commissioned from the architect Piero Portaluppi. And all in a lovely garden setting too. Very close to Palestro metro station.

Villa Necchi Campiglio is a classic home in the heart of Milan. It is reflects a period of yesteryear with period furnishing, lighting, etc. The gardens are splendid and the restaurant on the property is a pleasant respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.

This was the perfect setting to see good art in an intimate and interesting setting. If only going to see the villa, it's worth it. The details of paneling, flooring, structure are exceptional. While not an extensive collection art, there are good works, including Picasso.

During the first years of 1900 , the municipality of Milan decided to edificate this area that was the park of villa Serbelloni . The family Campiglio bought a part of this area and commissioned the project of their villa to the architect Piero Portaluppi .
He made a simple building inside the park.

This was one of the first ‘sightseeing ‘ activities we did on our first day in Milan, and what a wonderful experience it was. A magic introduction to the often much maligned Milano. After wandering the magnificent grounds of this 1930’s grand villa, we purchased our tour guide tickets and wandered inside. After accidentally joining an Italian speaking tour group for 10 minutes and understanding very little, we quickly found our English speaking guide who was terrific, informative and fun. (Supposedly all the guides are volunteers, and for that I want to say a big thank you). And what a beautiful interior; the workmanship, the design, the art and furniture were beyond exceptional, it was a step back in time to a time and place that doesn’t exist anymore. I wish we could have stayed longer, or at the very least, move in.

My friend suggested to visit and it was worth it.
I guess they make only guided tours which is a good thing because only then you can really get to know all the details in the house.
You only have to prepare that guided tours go in every hour or so but in the meantime you can wait in a little cafe in front of the house.
Its a really interesting and refreshing attraction for a change instead of ordinary museums.
The guided tour lasted for about an hour or so.

My partner and I really enjoyed our tour around this stunning building. Due to her and me being impatient we opted for the Italian tour (even though we speak no words of Italian), even though we were advised to wait and hour for the English one. We arrived and were the only two people at the time, the staff being incredibly accommodating, found us an English translator, a lovely Cambridge University student who was spending a year in Italy on a placement. The in-depth information given whilst walking around the house was so interesting, learning about the family who lived there, what they did. They not only show off the furniture which was originally there, but the owner's hat collection, scarf collection, even the head servants room and dress. Genuinely such an interesting experience, there's even beautiful paintings dotted around, even a room temperature controlled to protect works from Picasso!
One of our favourite experiences in Milan, and for such a good price too!
My partner and I only paid five euro each, granted we're students, but still! For that price...you really can't say no.

A great example of timeless modernism, with an interesting family history. We were originally turned off by the fact that visits through the inside of the home require a one hour guided tour (included in ticket price); however, the tour was interesting, informative, and moved along quickly. The tour also highlighted history that we would never have known about otherwise, making the visit all the more special. Architects, interior designers and even those with a slight interest in design should enjoy. Note: most of the property is not air conditioned so it was a bit stuffy on a warm day but not unbearable.

If you like 20th Century architecture, Art Deco, even Prairie Modern, this is an interesting place to spend a bit of time. Just off some very busy streets, it's an urban oasis. The tour is a fascinating insight to Europe between the two world wars. Beautifully preserved. The main staircase is a splendid piece of modern work. Obviously, not for everyone.
There is a lovely little cafe in the back alongside the tennis courts for a pleasant lunch or just a cappuccino with very decent prices (for Milan).
