A taste of Europe in Miami, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens once served as the home of businessman James Deering. Begun in 1910, with architecture and gardens modeled on the Mediterranean Revival style, the estate was Deering's winter residence from 1916 until his death in 1925. Today, the museum and gardens attract visitors who are drawn by the villa's collection of antique furniture, tapestries, paintings, and decorative arts. The seaside gardens brim with fountains, sculptures, gazebos, trails, and pools. The estate frequently hosts dignitaries from around the world.

  • Self guided tour of the entire mansion was really fun to do. You could linger as long as you liked in each room. The gardens were also fantastic. The breakwater that was built like a grounded ship was...  more »

  • Absolutely breathtaking. Both inside and outside are beautiful. I didn't do a guided tour and I don't think it is needed because there is quite a bit of information on signs at key points. Vizcaya is a place where you can spend the entire day, relaxing. Oh and make sure you have enough storage space for pictures... you'll need it.
  • Almost a private tour, there were just two people in our group. I appreciate that this piece of history has been preserved. The house and grounds are beautiful, and there are lots of animals! Swans and iguanas and even monkeys! So cute. We also saw 7 manatees in the river when I was on my way out. December is a great time to visit.
  • Perfect place to spend afternoon and enjoy nature and beautiful European architecture. The grounds are maintained well with amazing amount of different flowers and vegetation. The mansion is unique and has a truly a mind blowing decorations. One of these must see places to appreciate and enjoy the craftsmanship of European architects.
  • one of a kind magical place! everything about this estate is beautiful, it’s as though you’ve stepped into Italy while still in Miami. I could’ve spent a whole week here and there definitely is a weeks worth of things to see here! the gardens seem to never end and yet every single square inch is pretty🌿😍it is worth the admission prices, remember to bring your school ID if you have one! beautiful location to take pictures no matter the occasion, I can’t get enough of this place it’s magnificent!
  • Amazing architecture, amazing scenery, it's best to go on a beautiful sunny day. Prices are fairly inexpensive, and there's plenty to see and do before you get tired out. Parking is plentiful and free, so don't bother parking down the street looking for parking like we did, it's included and on grounds!
