Guided Tours 

Pirro I Visconti Borromeo invites you to discover the wonders and enchantment of Villa Borromeo Visconti Litta and his famous Nymphaeum. Built at the end of the 16th century it is one of the world’s most important nymphaeums for the richness of the decorations and the variety of water games. Also, the wonderful historic park wanted by the Marquis Pompeo Litta, who inherited the villa in 1750 and implemented major refurbishment of scenic gardens, multiplying the effects of perspective, creating backdrops, building from scratch the front of the Nymphaeum.  

Known and loved around the world, the Nimphaeum of Villa Borromeo Visconti Litta will amaze you. Here were preserved some masterpieces, like the Madonna Litta attributed to Leonardo Da Vinci. Today, after careful restoration, you can still admire the Wunderkammer decorated with mosaics, caves full of sculptures, automata and stunning water features.   

The beauty of Villa Borromeo Visconti Litta shines in the night, thanks to the new lighting specifically designed for the Nymphaeum. A walk under the stars to experience the charm and delight of art and stunning water features in the moonlight.  

For groups and upon booking only, a fascinating opportunity: a visit accompanied by characters in antique costumes. Between mosaics and fountains, a curious and intriguing journey through history of the centuries of greatest splendor of the Villa: from the 16th century art to the early 20th century style.
