A beautiful spot. The guide was most enthusiastic and the tour was interesting. The grounds were gorgeous too. Worth checking out if you're close by.

I was at Villa Litta August 20. I decided to write a review in English because my astonishment among the many visitors there was no stranger. A real pity. The tour lasts about three hours, led by exceptional volunteers "Friends of Villa Litta". The Nymph...More

Been there twice already with both kids growing up. Probably will do it again. The place is gorgeous and the tour guides never disappoint.
