Built in 1916 as a winter retreat, this lavish villa is a tribute to the Italian Renaissance. The museum contains much of the original furnishings and artwork, and is surrounded by lush, formal gardens.

Visited this piece of history with my girlfriend many times and with each visit I grab new inspirations for the trip. A mansion that houses different time periods on each room is bestowed upon you. Gleaming with antiques from different parts of Europe. With one piece that was actually present at Pompeii. Then there's the garden that has breath taking... More

Beautiful grounds reminiscent of European gardens. The main house was constructed as the winter home for John Deering and designed by Paul Chalfin.

No photography is allowed inside, however, it is allowed outside in the gardents. The grounds offer... More

I love Vizcaya. I had always seen pictures and heard people talk about the museum and the gardens but never had a chance to go until my parents came to visit and I decided to take them. The history of the mansion is fantastic and can really be appreciated in every one of the rooms. The gardens are beautiful and... More

I could not have been more disappointed or disillusioned with this place. I paid $36 for three tickets (adult, senior, child). We entered and were greeted warmly by the security guard.
