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.

Love to come here in the summer when it's free lol. This is a nice place full of history! If you have severe allergies like me and youngest, please med up before coming lol. The dust and plant allergens are ridiculous for us! But that does not stop me from visiting. For photo shoots this is a beautiful place too!... More

Two words sum up this attraction - breathtaking and beautiful. . Pros: * worth the admission price but throw in the audio tour. You will thank me later. Ahahaha! *plan on spending 2 to 3 hours if you want the full experience. * didn't run into any long lines. Maybe because I went off season?. Cons: * No pictures allowed... More

Imagine how you will spend money if you are rich, you live in a coastal city, and you love European art.

This is an incredible property with lovely gardens - though if you have been to great houses in Italy or France you might get the feeling you have been here before! - with gardens that are great for a long walk. However numerous aspects of the set-up, admin and staffing are very disappointing and diminish the experience. Firstly the staff... More

We decided to tour the Vizcaya. Worked out for us as I noticed on their website before visiting that being a veteran and having ID that I could get in free like active duty personnel. So that was a plus to save. Very nice of them to include that benefit. Very good visit but would recommend spending the $5 for... More

I visited Coconut Grove and found myself at this beautiful attraction. It's an odd thing to come across a grand 'old' Italian house and gardens in South Florida, but it's been so well done (in the 1920's I think) that you completely accept its authenticity. I wasn't so interested in the house, although it's still pretty amazing, but the gardens... More

Eclectic building, said to be Italian, but definitely with a strong Hispanic accent. Unnecessary. But the gardens, oh, the gardens! Unique combination of classical sculptures and composition among sea sand and a consolidated native vegetation AND fauna. Exquisite and curious. The sea view itself with the "concrete ship" is worth the visit.

We enjoyed a late afternoon tour of the Vizcaya mansion during our visit to Miami. Very interesting touring the house and later the extensive gardens. Very busy for the holidays, plan on spending some time in line to obtain entrance, after that free roam at your leisure. Easily worth about 2-3 hours of your time not including the wait to... More

The ocean views are beautiful. Magnificently restored structure and grounds. If you like to visit historic and charming homes this should work for you.
