Vizcaya was the winter home of James Deering, a wealthy industrialist in the early 1900's. It's a beautifuly restored 34 room mansion with some characteristics of Venetian palaces including a wonderful courtyard and a setting on Biscayne Bay. The upper floor of the mansion is not wheelchair accessible, but there is a video showing the upstairs for those who cannot handle the stairs. The view over the Bay is spectacular and there is a garden with fountains, waterfalls, and statuary. There's a cafe with very good food. The box office is a bit inefficient, so be prepared to wait in line.
