Owner description: 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.

I loved the gardens from Viscaya they were great and the little restaurant outside was amazing. My wife favorite part was the view and a little tree where the name of lovers are. She found it romantic and of course we put our name there as well.

It was one of the best museums of history that I have seen. The museum was large, modern and well-designed. Good facilities and a nice museum shop.

This place is a true Gem in the middle of the city of Miami. A must See!
Definitely, get the audio tour or some kind of tour... to learn all the history behind the place. Take time walk all around the garden, and see all the different plants, trees, flowers, etc. Water fountains are just lovely. The garden is so peaceful and quiet.
The boat duct - channel, I was just picturing my self in Venice, Italy - all over again! But this place is just here in the United States ... don't have to travel accross the world to find it. (I do agree with another reviewer - it would be nicer if they clean the canal) But it's still amusing!

Such a surprise to find such a piece of history on the shores of the bay of Biscayne. The building itself is way over the top and gives a good indication of what life may have been like for the owner. The audio self tour is great and definitely fills in most of the missing pieces. What a flamboyant setting for a confirmed bachelor...say no more!

This is a wonderful place to visit but it is a little going to Las Vegas to see the Eiffel Tower. I live in Miami and like to go here just for a nice outing. The house is not a replica of anyplace specific but it would be a mistake to think of it as something authentically "Florida" if you are just in Miami for a short visit and want to experience the culture of the city. The house is a beautiful villa with exquisitely decorated rooms surrounding a covered courtyard. There is a fake stone "gondola" off the back door and beautiful gardens. During the summer, the heat can be difficult for wandering in the gardens. Expect to see lots of people taking photographs for weddings, Quinceañeras, etc.
