Viscaya is a must-see. It is an early 20th century millionaire villa turned museum, a mansion and gardens at which you can spend almost a whole day just wandering around agog. The mansion is an eclectic mish-mash of American dreams and European finery, and add the extensive gardens, and it is like a grown-up fantasy land. Luckily, some crazy millionaires... More

If you're looking for something to do in Miami, you have got to visit Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. The grounds and mansion are absolutely gorgeous! A lot of history so give yourself some time to really enjoy. It's very hot and rainy during the summer months so try and go when it's cooler. Vizcaya has served as a backdrop for... More

I bring all my out of town guests to Vizcaya as it is such a great attraction, always clean and they have a nice little cafe if you get hungry. you cannot beat the view of Biscayne Bay and the history of the estate.

How can you love in Miami and not visit Vizcaya? The gardens, the museum, the history is this italianesque estate built in a swap a century ago are still amazing today. A must see for locals and visitors.

We were in Miami for a couple of days and this had been recommended on various sites as one of the top 10 attractions to see. We travelled there on the metrorail and it was well sign posted and easy enough to get to from Vizcaya station (about a 10 minute walk). The house was nice but apart from the... More

This is a beautifully preserved residence and gardens from the 1920s. The house is open for guided and unguided tours. The gardens are open for self guided exploration. The cafe has a delicious Mahi mahi sandwich and guava and cream cheese pastery. The gift shop has many unique and beautiful items.

The house had lovely furniture, beautiful interior, lovely gardens, and great waterfront views. It is a great day out for the family. My only complaints were it smelled bad by the water, there were a lot of mosquitos, and there were a lot of rooms you couldn't go in.
