In Varese, not far from the railway station and only 50 minutes away from Milan, Villa Panza is a 18th century villa surrounded by a magnificent Italian garden that hosts one of the foremost collections of contemporary American art as well as international exhibitions. Dan Flavin, James Turrel and Robert Irwin are only three of the many artists at Villa and Collezione Panza. It’s not only a must-see for art lovers, but a really unique and unexpected place for wonderful pictures and for a day off from Milan.
Villa Panza is open to the public all year round from Tuesday to Sunday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm.
Closed on Mondays.
Ticket Office closes at 5:15 p.m.
