  • The villa built and designed entirely by green, where he wrote from Macbeth to Falstaff: gorgeous inside with paintings, furniture, various trinkets, imprints of the master's hand and Strepponi (the latter donated by Zeffirelli), portraits (including the beloved little dog, Lulu), fortepiano and pianoforte Elder with its desk where he composed (the spinet on which he studied as a young man is not here nor in Roncole, but it seems you gutters at the retirement home for musicians in Milan, built by Verdi himself). There are integral and original furniture inside the rooms of the great Verdi and Strepponi; Besides the furniture and the bed of the Grand Hotel in Milan where he died were transferred in this villa. The visit is guided and it cannot be otherwise, because you need to understand what is in the various rooms. The villa is inhabited by the heirs of the family and is not entirely visitable: is an amazing place, where understanding the magnitude of verdi and his generosity of man. The lady who has guided us has provided several anecdotes about Greens, some very famous and was well prepared and informed about everything. Extraordinary garden with over 100 plants from all over the world and the treble clef-shaped pond, designed by the master. Belle le carozze on which he was traveling, authentic pearls. Green lovers must come here and in Roncole, in his birthplace ... Busetto and Museum are a total disappointment. Here at Villa Saint Agatha to continue to worship the GREAT MUSIC by VERDI and his artistic genius! Entrance ticket € 9.00, a bit pricey in my opinion; If it matches the view at the Museo Barezzi, the overall price is €11. Cute and small mini shop set up at the entrance of the Villa. Very good wine produced by the estate and sold at the shop. Only con: we need a guide in English for the many foreign tourists who come to visit this place so lyrically intense!

  • A unique experience and, thanks to the competence and courtesy of the guides, a cultural experience of excellence. Is your visit to Villa Verdi, the House that belonged to the great composer, remained intact for the benefit of visitors, as if the teacher had left just moments before. Original furnishings, exceptional memorabilia, a rare feeling to be able to move in the same spaces where Giuseppe Verdi lived, wrote and became, by musical genius, able administrator of his goods and possessions. Through the voice of the guide, it turns out, then, a Verdi "unpublished", eclectic and forerunner of the times in the design of the House and the adjoining Park as well as dealings with the service staff. Not to be missed (paying attention to opening hours). Villa Verdi is closed on Mondays.

  • It's truly special to visit this place, not because it overwhelms you with facts and features or equipment, but because of its genuine feel of Verdi. One must appreciate maestro's realised vision of t...  more »

  • Seen from outside, I never cease to be amazed by how Italy has the ability to let things crumble to pieces. You can tell that the building is in real bad shape. The location is not exactly manicured as it should and the signs are sketchy in order to get there. I get the impression that Italy has a really hard time banking on their massive history. Maybe they just take it too much for granted...Decadence, sometimes ignorance.
  • This is a small authentic italian restaurant on around the Eiffel Tower. The streets were quiet as it was a Monday but the restaurant was buzzing with a large party. Very authentic food and staff and thoroughly enjoyed the meal. Their house cocktail of Prosecco with Limoncello was fab!!!
  • I was not allowed to enter the Villa Verdi since there was no English speaking guide, though I drove a lot to visit this place.
  • The memories, the furnishings, the letters, the great master Greens are an opportunity to reflect on his music and 19th century romantic as if he were there present davanta a cgi wonders and thinks. All for good substance remained unaffected. Worth, figuring to return a second time more calmly. Prof Herman Paleari, Milan

  • Must see, this villa was the residence of Giuseppe Verdi. The rooms are decorated with memorabilia of Verdi, as well as paintings and antiques bought directly by the well-known composer. Some environments, such as the bedroom and garden were built according to his precise instructions; He also decided to dig a lake shaped like a treble clef.
