Vizcaya is an extremely impressive place with the elaborate, ornate waterfront villa surrounded by masterfully designed and manicured gardens in the heart of Miami. It was fantastic walking around and taking it all in. Their website has a ton more information than I can recall (rates, events, etc.) so please check it out (http://vizcaya.org/home.asp). This is a great afternoon whether... More

Miami's Biltmore House - fabulous home, beautifully restored, life as a lottery winner. Best part are the gardens. Go when it's cool and do not go to any festivals.

An amazing historical home owned by a man who had more money than he knew what to do with. The gardens are lovely, especially at the waterfront. The interior is a bit of a hodge podge, clearly decorated by someone who thought Europe represented the height of elegance. I would love to know more about the owner James Deering but... More

Loved every inch of this location. Beautiful gem and inexpensive. Lots of history at this location and great place to take pictures. Free parking is definitely a mega plus. Would definitely recommend!

Have wanted to visit Vizcaya for the longest time so today was the day. Easy to find, just off the Interstate & well signposted. Car park was full when I arrived but security man directed me to overflow which I found easily. No line to buy tickets, it's $18 for adults & there are some discounts. And then the upselling...

Beautiful home and grounds. Former home of James Deering, who wanted his winter home to resemble an Italian palace.

The mossy stagnant waters in the back of the building give out so much stench, the rest of the experience gets diluted by this.
