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.

We loved our tour of the house. Would love to move in soon. The difference between the original architect's vision and the renovation completed 10 yrs later is interesting. Some of the original furnis... more »

Once the door is crossed, one is immediately transported to another era where art and luxury but also the chic sobriety of Art Deco shine everywhere. The huge lobby has the beautiful staircase giving access to the floors. Elegant and comfortable rooms, marble bathrooms. Art collections in all corners: designs, paintings, sculptures, carpets and breathtaking chandeliers. The corridors with classical and opulent decoration: vases, porcelain. The veranda and outdoor swimming pool, symbols of the Innovative Intuitions of the Necchi Campiglio family in terms of habitat. High quality materials: mahogany, rosewood, noble wood and fine wood in cabinets, desks, chairs, secretaries, tables, armchairs. Velvet, soft hues and bright colors draping, enveloping all these treasures, memories of a warm family universe, comforting, solid, beautifully maintained, preserved. Sumptuous aesthetics in a very functional place to live. An outstanding architectural and artistic gem in Milan
Amazing Villa. Fabulous art. Wonderful, informative guide. Guided tours only, so we had to wait a while for an English tour. The tour lasted more than an hour because the guide was so knowledgeable. Plan your visit accordingly if you have many sites to see in Milan.
There’s no doubt that the villa is a spectacular example of the period with a range of important art works, including Picasso, Chagall, Canaletto and Matisse (which they really seem to play down in their blurb). Our guide was disappointing, reeling off facts in an apathetic manner and not really doing a great deal to engage with us or the house and it’s details. At one point she told one of the guests to be more polite - he’d only asked her to speak more slowly. But well worth a visit (don’t expect any food in the cafe, either).
