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.

I returned to Vizcaya and it was gratifying to see that the beautiful villa is aging well and is well cared for. It feels like you are not in Miami for a couple of hours, a great escape. It’s selfie paradise, lots of beautiful settings...More

It is a wonderful place to visit, walk and see. Perfectly maintained and beautiful setting a visit to Vizcaya is a trip to Italy without getting on a plane. The perfection of the gardens and the interior decor will enchant you. Highly recommended.

The place is not so big and fabulous as Biltmore Estate in North Carolina ;-) but we enjoyed the park and the castle a lot. A very well-kept place, and there is wildlife, we saw an alligator in the mangroves ponds and a lot of...More

I visited with my 88-year-old mother from Pennsylvania. This is a lovely way to spend time in our great Miami weather enjoying a beautiful home in a spectacular waterfront setting. We opted to rent the audio guides and were very glad we did. The guides...More

I hadn't been to Vizcaya in a while and wanted to share it with my parents who'd never been to Miami before. They absolutely loved it! From the gardens to the interior and the art objects, and then the view of Biscayne Bay behind the...More

Definitely worth a visit. The museum itself is very interesting, and the audio tour is well worth the price. Anything missed can be replayed so you get the best experience possible. The house is stunning, period pieces and art that is mesmerising. For me, the...More

My wife wanted to check this place out so we went on a Monday. It was surprisingly busy. The cost to get in is a bit high.($22 a person). The history of the house was very interesting. The gardens are nice but not awesome. It...More

This was surprisingly interesting. There's lots of things you won't see anyplace else, and it's probably good fun for the kids. There's some cool stained glass, some great murals with old ships and seascapes, and a bunch of other things. My favorite was actually the...More

Yes, there're bottles in the mangroves, and still some hurricane damage, little lizards everywhere and the grounds aren't quite pristine - BUT it is still worthy of a '5' rating. The place wreaks of history, grandeur and many surprises both inside and out. Give yourself...More

Within the house itself there is no mobility access to the upper floor and there is also a few steps to get into the house itself. The gardens are fully accessible for wheelchair users though

Both good choices but I would go with the Poyal Palm. Close to Lincoln Road which is great to stroll, nibble, drink and people watch. Lots of great food choices in the area and best of all it’s right on the beach where the... More
