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.

Vizcaya was absolutely beautiful. The house, garden, and ocean with cities view was spectacular. Took my mom here for Mother's Day and she and I both loved it. Time spent here is well over 4 hours and the museum offers guided tours and a restaurant on premises. You're able to take pictures outside but not inside the actual mansion, that's... More

A huge estate left by a wealthy Miamian. Go visit for the huge collection of art, furniture and opulent house and garden. You will be blown away

This has to be the most elaborate mansion we've ever visited and we've seen quite a few in NY on Long Island. The gardens and the back facing the water is breathtaking. The rooms are so elaborate. It did get hot though despite the air conditioning on the upper floors. The cafe is quite nice. Will come again!

This property formerly the estate of James Deering is now owned and maintained by the county and it's opened to the public, there is a cover charge to get in and tours are additional. This Villa was built... More

Great place to spend several hours. Beautiful scenery and garden. Very romantic for couples also. The only downfall, its difficult for elderly to walk through the gardens if they are unstable.

A great place to visit with friends or to go on a date. I visited with a group of friends during spring break and we had a blast. Perfect scenery to take beautiful pictures.

If you are anywhere close to these gardens you MUST go. You will be transported to Italy as you walk through the gates....I will be visiting again.
