“Nice afternoon”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Friendly staff. Amazing house and gardens. Interesting to see how the upper class used to spend their winters. Maybe the Great Gatsby wasn't that far from reality.

“Glimpse of the past”
Reviewed September 8, 2013

Vizcaya has been maintained pretty much in its original condition. Take the guided tour. It is very informative. The house and gardens are beautify and transport you back to the early 1900's. Have lunch at the little restaurant and sit by the pool. The pool is very unusual. It is half under the house and half in the open. The whole place is well maintained and a pleasure to see. Take the time to see the gardens also.

“Interesting but a bit sad.”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is a very interesting place to visit but it is obviously not very well organised being run by a Miami Dade--almost as it they feel stuck with it. The overall impression is that this was quite a sad place belonging to a "lifelong bachelor" -as they said in those days! Maybe if he had lived in these slightly more enlightened times , it would have been a place of great joy and happiness. By all means do visit --but the staff are pretty sad too!

“Love the flowers!”
Reviewed September 7, 2013

This is a must see. It was a little hot that day, to be expected in the summer in Miami. Wow I was blown away by the garden and the architecture. Will be back next time in Miami.

“Vizcaya a must see!!M”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Vizcaya is a must see while in Miami! The estate itself, in addition to the gardens and breathtaking view are second to none. You will be transported to another place and time.
