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.

Vizcaya museum and gardens is one of my favorite places to visit in Miami. The house has such a rich history. You can do self-guided tour‘s, guided tours, or audio tours. Any of these kinds of tours are a great way to visit the house. We chose to do a self-guided tour so we could take our time and read the guides that were at each room. We enjoyed having the time to look at all of the furniture and details that were included when the house was built. The gardens outside are absolutely amazing, make sure you take the time to explore the gardens find the hidden garden, do the hedge maze, and find the area in the back where the gondolas could pull up. The gardens are a great place to get family photos and get amazing views of Biscayne Bay. I would highly recommend taking the time to explore Vizcaya give yourself a couple hours.
My favorite place in Miami. Great gardens on the water with incredible views and a historic mansion which gives you a real sense of how people with money lived long ago. The colorful lizards sun basking on heads of old, worn statues was a cool site. Plan to spend hours here taking it all in. Personal photography was allowed outside, but not inside the mansion. Who is going to see you snap a shot of that spiral staircase, though? Nice gift shop, too.
