“Worth including into Miami visit”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

We took the Metro rail to the Museum, thus skipping traffic and parking fees. The museum and grounds are beautiful. Suggest going on a slightly overcast day, early in the day, come with a hat and sunscreen - the grounds need time to explore and relax. Lunch in the cafe can make the experience also.

“A great place to travel back in time”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 25, 2013

We did the tour for the interior of the home and then did our own pace for the outside. Amazing history and amenities in the home given when it was built. This is a tour that can be easily done at your own pace in its entirety, however it was good to get the information from the tour guide.

What is not too like? The setting, the grounds, the knowledgeable tour. Very lush and well maintained place.

“Impressive european style architecture in Miami!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 23, 2013

This are the surprises you sometimes find where you didn´t expected. A 20th century house (which is like a small palace) with exquisite 15th to 17th century furniture. Indeed the owner at that time, Mr. James Deering loved Europe and the house itself is a confirmation of it. The gardens are nice, but they could look better so they could be outstanding because they have the potential.

"For decades, Vizcaya has been a diplomatic seat of Miami-Dade County, having hosted some of the world’s most renowned dignitaries—such as Queen Elizabeth II, Pope John Paul II, President Ronald Reagan, and King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia of Spain—and major international events—such as the Summit of the Americas, the signing of the Free Trade Agreement, and activities associated with Art Basel."

My favorite part: the swimming pool!
DEFINITELY A PLACE TO MAKE AN EVENT!!
