Built in 1916 as a winter retreat, this lavish villa is a tribute to the Italian Renaissance. The museum contains much of the original furnishings and artwork, and is surrounded by lush, formal gardens.

We also had lunch in the café- the food was good;flat bread and sandwich's- beer and wine is also served. The house does offer wheel chairs on a first come first serve basis, let them know... More

Worth the price of admission. We are local and we visit once every few years with our US based visitors from other states and always find it interesting. The Gardens have been restored and they are nice. Most of the indoors exhibitions are AC. They have a pleasant area for lunch-refreshments. If hot weather is an issue then the Gardens... More

This is a little jewel about 10 minutes cab ride from downtown Miami. Great place to while away an hour or two and see how the other half lived in the Great Gatsby days of the US. The house is small in scale but rich in detail and, thanks to the design and ample printed explanations, it is easy to... More

I first visited Vizcaya in the late 70's and the beauty stayed with me so much, I was determined to visit again to share with my husband. We had a perfect weather day and walked the entire house and gardens. As beautiful and peaceful as I remember, although now you can hear the sounds of traffic in some of the... More

I was initially skeptical, since we've been to a number of historic homes, but this one, for some reason, was quite captivating. James Deering, of International Harvester fortune, built an overwhelming mansion with beautiful gardens. Although there are some guided tours, we took the self-guided audio tour ($5/person) which was just right - good interesting stories that kept your interest.

I absolutely love Vizcaya. I am a local and cannot get enough of it. It is such a peaceful and beautiful place to sit and enjoy a day with family, friends, or significant other. Definitely recommend.
