Villa Della Porta Bozzolo Tours

Villa Della Porta Bozzolo
The Villa della Porta Bozzolo near Varese is a 16th-century villa originally built as the country retreat for the noble Della Porta family. It was later owned by the Bozzolo family, hence the combined name. The entire estate became part of Italy’s national trust in the late 19th century.

The villa is a showcase of 18th century Rococo from when it was renovated, and remains decorated with furnishings from that era. There are trompe l’oeil elements and spectacular frescoes to see.

An Italian garden, complete with fountains and architectural elements, was added to the villa grounds in the 18th century. There is a grand staircase and an avenue lined with cypress trees. Other buildings on the grounds include stables, barns, and cellars.

Visitors can explore the gorgeous grounds and villa at their leisure, or - for a more complete understanding of the place - take a guided tour. These tours are available with advance booking.
