The house and gardens are beautiful. Each room is decorated with its own theme. Although there are placards in each room with a brief description, spring an additional $5 for the audio tour to get more in depth information. The one downside is there is no photography inside the house, but that seems to be the standard for such places.... More

A very scenic, educational, and historic adventure in a beautiful, ostentatious mansion out of the gilded age of America. Eye candy for furniture/art/detail fans. Excellent cafe with fresh and tasty selections.

A piece of Miami grandeur. Well maintained, beautiful gardens reflective of a bygone era. Romantic setting where many wedding shoots take place. Saw a modeling shoot going on as well when I visited.

Such an incredible home & gardens! You must purchase the audio tour! Walking around and seeing everything is incredible, but if you don't take the audio tour, you will learn nothing about the house and it's history! For instance, it is unbelievable how many ceilings and walls were actually purchased in Italy and shipped here. YES! Ceilings and walls were... More

The Vizcaya museum and gardens is fairy tale mansion with elaborate gardens which makes you wonder how the very wealthy lived in the early 1900's. The home is not as large as the gilded age mansions in Newport, RI but it is quite impressive. This being Florida, however, it is the outside living spaces that take your breath away. It... More

As a local I've been to Vizcaya many times, with family, friends, and even on their yearly Halloween Bash. If you're from out of town, take the tour, there are a lot of interesting facts. This is really just a glimpse into the world of a millionaire's home and gardens. The gardens are a great way to spend a quiet... More

Unbelievable! You can take half a day here just looking around and taking pictures. Kids would also like this sight. I loved to see so many 15 y.o. girls taking pictures for their quinceañera.

Imagine a nice house, very nice House, a huge park packed with vegetation, and a profusion of nice furnitures, paintings, scultures. Gardens worth the visit.

John Deering's beautiful Mansion. Stunning views to the ocean. Beautiful landscape architecture. Very well preserved. With lots of valuable antiques. Don't miss it! (It's like visiting a Chateau in the Loire...- a MUST!)
