Not usually my type of attraction but this place was beautiful inside and out. The front, the interior, the gardens, the views, and that amazing seaside dock.

This is an amazing place to walk through, both the house and the gardens. The house was originally from Europe, dismantled, shipped and rebuilt here. It shows how the rich really lived. The gardens are the amazing part. Make sure you see the pool that is half indoors and half outdoors. Also, notice the call board in the kitchen for... More

The place is absolutely beautiful! What you'll see here is worth so much more than the small entrance fee :) Don't think a second about it and JUST GO!

Vizcaya is such a beauty. Purchasing tickets is very simple, the entrance makes you feel like you're taking a step through our rich history. I absolutely love how passionate the tour guide was and informative. I have now visited this location 3 times and each time I've taken more and more people with me. I've gone with friends and family... More

Its truly like stepping back in time. Well worth the visit if you have a couple hours to spare, dont rush through it. House is kept as true to the 1920's as possible, all original furniture. Gardens are spectacular, the barge is something out of Venice.

Wow. Just a really special place. The gardens have a really great feel about them. You can escape the city and busy streets to what feels like another world. It's important to take someone with you to help with photos. I was with someone I met backpacking and it was a day I'll never forget. All around beauty!

This place is awesome, couldn't find a word to describe it. I think it is even better than the Hearst Castle in California.

Every trip to Miami includes the beaches. However, there is an abundance of other things to do and see including Vizcaya just south of Miami in Coconut Grove. This is the historic home of John Deering set on the water, replete with beautiful gardens reminiscent of Venice and a beautiful collection of paintings and antiquities in the home, now a... More
