  • The villa itself is beautiful: the interior furnishings there are practically no more, remained very little (for whom we will find out why;)), but the rooms themselves are fine. On the first floor the visit is accompanied: the guide is not a guide, provides only small hints and then the rest is supplemented by the audioguide included in the ticket. Only small gripe or speaks the accompanist or feels the audioguide, many times He clambered over and didn't understand neither the one nor the other. But I have to say that your organization is great. On the second floor honestly there is little or nothing, there are many other venues where there are photographic panels with photos of the restoration. The rooms here too very nice however they could have put a caption to your photos otherwise remains very baseless air. Finally on the third floor there is an exhibition at the triennale design and I must say it was pretty interesting.

  • Splendid Palace and recently restored. The guided tour, entrusted in part to the guides, the audio guide for a more general presentation of each room, is very interesting and improving all the time, because at the end of the same are asked for suggestions to improve the experience. The full price of the tour varies from €10 to €19 depending on the floors that you visit (to 3 there is also an exhibition of modern art). The Park, however, can be visited free of charge. The Villa Real is included in the subscription Museums Lombardy.

  • Beautiful Royal residence recently reported to its former glory after two centuries of decline. Amazing what has been done in two years. Beautiful salon and the Royal apartments, the only ones to be furnished. The third floor is used as a permanent exhibition at the Triennale. I note that the whole villa is wheelchair accessible.

  • The place is very nice, considering the actual Villa as a whole and not strictly a reserved seat in the restaurant which is little more than a hallway. The à la carte menu is not up to the price, the quality is poor, we found also incorrect to show the list of desserts on the menu but only verbally to find out later that a run-of-the-mill sorbet had cost 9 euros. The two restaurants that accompanied me were very disappointed.

  • Unfortunately, the restaurant is not up to the splendid setting in which it is situated. You can also have a menu with prices high, though the food has to be flawless. Instead the starter and the second of meat I tried were well below expectations. Such a pity! I hope he can improve, but in these conditions are to be avoided.

  • Referring to the bar area, I can say that I have found an excellent warmth and kindness and professionalism. The bartender is very helpful and the drink according to my taste without extra charge, all included along with two different French toast. Very good

  • Starting from the historical location that leaves you speechless especially at night with a careful lighting, the kitchens of Villa Reale gleam with elegance and professionalism. I think it's one of the most romantic spots where you can dine. Great choice of pasta and meat and bread made from the kitchens is absolutely top notch. An experience to be repeated without question. Raccomamdato.

  • Had dinner thanks to groupon, I was afraid of having to go from McDonald's to compensate, however, we were pleasantly pleased. Prime location, warm and friendly service, great food and wine. To be repeated soon.
