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.

This is a place you must visit in Miami. The house is packed with furniture and artifacts, it offers rich cultural history. Make sure you have enough time to visit and read about the owner and his life. The garden is another story, so much to see there too. Loved the fountains, the flowers and statues. At some point I...

I visited twice over the last two years. If you enjoy nice gardens and the outdoors you have to find a few hours during your stay in the Miami area to make it to Vizcaya. Pictures are not permitted within the home you will have plenty of opportunities to get some great shots outdoors.

This magnificent Italian-style palace and garden is a must see part of any trip to Miami. The house is cool, but it's just some dead guy's house with all his beautiful, antique furnishings. What makes this place incredible are the gardens. The gardens are worth the price of admission all by themselves. There's secret grottoes, hidden pools, and little nooks... More

The 12th century monastery is really small and the garden is tiny. I find the little chapel interesting and the interior garden. Stop at the small display of artifacts from the 14th and 16th centuries and read the explanations. The cost is a little bit high at $10 per entrance.

Interesting estate and really a beautiful building with nice gardens, and the ocean behind it. You can do the research about it online. Really a nice spot for picture taking. Worth a stop.

Been to Vizcaya many times and it never gets old. Enjoyed taking my boyfriend who had never been there and was happy to see that the pool had finally been reopened. The new cafe was expensive but the food was really good. Surprising.

Visit! Visit the website. Programming is robust and nicely updating. Year round experiences. The indoor and outdoor tour by oneself or with others is stunning. The ambition behind the construction and horticultural approaches to the gardens is focused and nicely random. The Bay breezes add to the experience. Great little cafe and gift shop. Grotto recently restored so to explore,... More

This place is gorgeous. The gardens are amazing and the interiors of the homes is gorgeous and very interesting to hear about. I let my teens run wild in the garden while me and my husband took many photos of the grounds. This was not to be missed. I will be back. Would love to hear about events here on... More
