A taste of Europe in Miami, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens once served as the home of businessman James Deering. Begun in 1910, with architecture and gardens modeled on the Mediterranean Revival style, the estate was Deering's winter residence from 1916 until his death in 1925. Today, the museum and gardens attract visitors who are drawn by the villa's collection of antique furniture, tapestries, paintings, and decorative arts. The seaside gardens brim with fountains, sculptures, gazebos, trails, and pools. The estate frequently hosts dignitaries from around the world.

  • Absolutely breathtaking. Both inside and outside are beautiful. I didn't do a guided tour and I don't think it is needed because there is quite a bit of information on signs at key points. Vizcaya is a place where you can spend the entire day, relaxing. Oh and make sure you have enough storage space for pictures... you'll need it.
  • Almost a private tour, there were just two people in our group. I appreciate that this piece of history has been preserved. The house and grounds are beautiful, and there are lots of animals! Swans and iguanas and even monkeys! So cute. We also saw 7 manatees in the river when I was on my way out. December is a great time to visit.
