In the area of Parco delle Groane, a protected area that represents a fundamentally important green lung for the entire Milanese area, natural beauties and architectural inspiration blend in this not-to-be-missed part. Great and noble villas have given a precious connotation to the whole surrounding area. Important artists and architects have contributed to turn these houses into small jewels. The grace and elegance of these masterpieces of art is doubtlessly combined with the beauty of the area surrounding them. From Spring to Autumn, some of these houses become the backdrops of events of great cultural importance: from May to October, at established hours, it is possible to watch spectacular water shows at Villa Litta; at Villa Arconati al Castellazzo , called “the small Versailles”; in the hot evenings of July one can assist to wonderful concerts by internationally renowned artists. The villas can be viewed following the directions found in this area.
