We have certainly seen our share of historic estates/palaces and gardens in Russia, Germany, France, Portugal and Spain. I feel that Vizcaya can proudly hold its own among the great architectural sights especially because it combines European and American traditions in a very unique and breathtaking location. Instead of 1-1.5 hours as we expected, the tour of the house and gardens took about 4 hours including a lovely tea on the terrace. There are numerous photo opportunities outside as no photography is permitted inside the house. An audio guide was extremely helpful and informative without providing too many technical details. Our 9-year-old listened attentively for most of the tour and was curious about many things. I am glad that Vizcaya was our first stop during the visit to Miami as it provided a very unique introduction to the area. I would gladly visit it again to take in the beautiful sights.
