Decided to visit this place based on high reviews and to do something a little different than the usual Florida things. It was an interesting and worthwhile visit but for me it felt like visiting a property creeping into "ruins" territory. Having visited well-maintained historical properties in Europe, I was surprised how old this place felt despite it only being... More

Really great place. My first visit was in 2009, it was nice to be back after 5 years. Staff is making efforts to maintain the building in good condition. In one room they put a bed into a an air bubble with an intention to remove insects which damage the wood. I saw restoration work in one of the larger... More

Vizcaya is a beautiful place, full of old charm. Their gardens and view of the water makes this a place for special pictures or movies of any event. Weddings or birthdays.

Consider the fact that this is the only few places the UK Queen Elizabeth II and Pope John Paul II visited when they were here in Florida. Surely you shouldn't miss this beautiful mansion. The museum is a few minutes drive from Brickell financial district. You can take the trolley there, or even walk there from the financial district if... More

While living in Miami we visited Vizcaya many times through the years; we never got tired of going back. It is BEAUTIFUL! The house is so full of history; it really takes you in a journey to the past. If you like history, a visit here will give you a good insight to what being born back then might have... More

I visited Vizcaya with my 2yr old baby and I honestly would have preferred to visit this place with girlfriends, my mom or just my husband. The many stairs and different terrain on the gardens make it impossible to navigate with a stroller. I constantly had to take him in and out of his stroller to go up and down... More

It is fascinating to learn how the super-rich lived a century ago. The house, gardens, and furnishings are all well-maintained. We enjoyed our 3 hours.

This is the Deering Estate. It used to be a lot larger, but some of the land has been given over to the Science Museum and Planetarium as well as La Hermita de la Caridad and Mercy Hospital. This is a real Italian Villa sitting on Biscayne Bay. See the luxury that the Deerings lived in during Miami's Boom days.... More
