Royal Villa

The Royal Villa is a neoclassic palace originally built by Giuseppe Piermarini between 1777 and 1780, the same architect who developed the Scala Theater in Milan, when Lombardy was part of Austrian Empire, for the Archduke Ferdinand of Austria. It is one of the most attractive sights of interest set a few kilometers from Milan. Impressive fountains, well-finished and massive gardens and a stunning facade are just some of the beauties the villa has to offer.

Some history - Following the establishment of the Napoleonic Kingdom of Italy, the building was used as a Royal Palace and became home of the Viceroy of Italy, Eugéne de Beauharnais. With the fall of the First Empire (1815), Austria annexed the Italian territories to the Kingdom of Lombardy-Venetia, Monza being included in the province of Milan. In 1861, when the new Kingdom of Italy was established, the building became a palace of the Italian Royal Family of Savoia. The Royal Villa was abandoned by the royal family in 1900, after the murder of King Humbert I near the entrance as he returned from an event.
