If you like history and architecture this home is a great way to spend half a day. The self-guided audio tours are really informative!

take your time and enjoy the beautiful history and amazing scenery. Take a quick stop at the café, have the quiche (very good), I took the tour twice to really get a feel. It will blow your mind the history in that house.

Classic Miami mansion reminiscent of an Italian villa. Waterfront location provides a lovely setting yet is also the reason why this villa is in a fragile state. Ideal if seen with a tour guide. Definitely a must visit in Miami.

it is a nice building and very beautiful park around. I really like the front sea of the house. The house itself is a reproduction of italian and french 800 hystorical building.
