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.

My wife and I, along with one other friend spent some time touring this old mansion. We found it interesting. For those who love botany, architecture, and/or history, you would definitely enjoy visiting this place.

Must pay additional for the walking tour, worth it. Go during the spring or beginning of summer, it will be very hot if you go during the summer. Eat before you go, and take plenty of water.

Once in a while ,when in miami, we got there,tourthe house and the gardens. We have the most looking at brides and girls doing their 15 with wonderfull dresses and wild outfit. If you are from europe,please dont expect a castle ,this is a american folly on a grandeur scale.but fun to visit.

Viscaya has got too be Miami's secret pearl. A beautiful palace with a gorgeous view of Biscayne Bay, the middle of a busy city. It's like stepping into The Great Gatsby era!

The Mansion and Gardens are phenomenal, beautiful, stunning or any other wonderful adjective. The architecture of the mansion is amazing, the gardens are some of the best I have seen anywhere in the world. The history that you learn as you accompany the tour is quite interesting. I highly recommend Viscaya Museum & Gardens. This is not a good place... More

A must see if you are in Miami! Easy to get to and well worth the visit. A pretty popular attraction so there might be a line up for tickets. Beautifully kept grounds and mansion.

...Vizcaya is one of the places that I always recommend to friends coming in from out of town. Take several hours to properly experience the mansion and wander the gardens. Weekdays are outstanding as there are not too many about, making for a very personal experience.

A view into life in another time and on a level few of us have experienced. Knowledgeable, accessible docents and lots to look at. Beautiful grounds make you feel like you're inside a French impressionist painting.
