This 100-Year-Old Italian Villa Has The Most Spectacular Gardens in Wisconsin

A popular path in Milwaukee is to travel along Lincoln Memorial Drive just north of downtown. Whether you drive, walk or bike, it’s a gorgeous stroll right along Lake Michigan. Less than two miles north of the Art Museum you’ll come around a small curve at McKinley beach and when you look up – and up, and up – you’ll see a beautiful, ornate villa sitting atop the bluff, looking down over Lake Michigan. But before you even notice the house, you’ll likely notice the expansive, gorgeous and inviting gardens of Villa Terrace.
