“beyond beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

both the house and the gardens are unbelievable. I've been many times to Vizcaya, but can say this most recent visit was the best as the gardens were in the best shape ever seen. Even the statuary and walkways were in tip top shape, suitable for some awesome photographs.

“Beautiful home and gardens”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

My family and I really enjoyed our visit here. Can't imagine the detailed work that went into building the home and the gardens. Unbelievable European furniture in Miami. Who knew?

I wanted to give a tip to families. Kids who are not used to being in gardens or museums may get bored. We brought a sketch pad and colored pencils- and our kids loved it. They were able to draw pictures of the gardens while we got to enjoy the beautiful views. Just realize that for kids that are used to amusement parks, that this is a much more serene setting.

And don't miss the orchid garden. Really beautiful.

“Italian villa in Miami”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

This is a beautiful Italian style house with lots of period furniture, and Venetian type dock in the back, and really nice gardens. You can't believe you are really in downtown Miami.

“Always beautiful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 25, 2013

This place is better every time I go! I love to take out of town visitors here and the foundation has done a great job of restoration and maintenance. Well worth the trip but leave enough time to do a tour and then walk through the gardens.

To visit this place is to travel back in time and enjoy the coolnest of history. To ravel in time and imagine how would things had been back than. And to see a great work of art.
