One of Milan's museum houses, Villa Necchi Campiglio offers a glimpse into villa architecture in interwar Italy. Designed by Italian architect Piero Portaluppi, this was created as a single-family home with opulent grounds, rather than a palace or mansion. Over the years, it was home to Milanese elite and European royalty. As you wander from one richly decorated room to another, admire paintings and other artwork from the 18th through the 20th centuries.

Villa Necchi Campiglio Reviews
You can't miss this gem in the middle of the city. They do have a restaurant too on the back that serves good food. In the mornings they have guided tours of the villa that you can't miss! more »

The guided tour was excellent, the whole villa is like an oasis in a concrete desert of the bustling metropolis that Milan certainly is. The garden is marvellous, just like the villa itself. From the façade through the interiors, it is a beautiful sight. It is a real pity that the original owners decided to refurnish many of the original rooms as they thought that the functionalism and minimalism of the 30s and 40s reminded them of the fascist years, it could be the most important building of this architectural style in the world scope, as now it shows how easy it is to destroy such a masterpiece. Also featuring original works of Picasso and other great contemporary artists. Worth a vist if you have the time.
His : a classic landmark in Milan. I went there with the ideas that the visit of the house could be extended with a nice relax drink in the gardens. But no. The house lives up to expectations with a knowledgeable staff ready to give insights of the previous inhabitants and design features surrounding the luxurious rooms. Hers : I didn’t really know what to expect before we arrived but I thought the gardens would be more of an area for relaxing and having a coffee. But it wasn’t. Don’t know if it’s because it’s off season. Anyway the house was pretty cool but I feel like the entrance fee didn’t give much value for the money.
