A friend recommended a visit to vizcaya was a must while staying in Miami and she was not wrong. The mansion is amazing and the amount of original furnishings and fittings is incredible. At every turn you will find yourself catching your breath at the opulence and detail. A feast for the eyes inside and out, the gardens are fantastic... More

Vizcaya is a great place to spend few hours, walk around in the gardens and enjoy the beautiful Miami weather! It's on the water and you can take some great pictures!

Very interesting but no way as impressive as Hearst Castle in California. GArdens were fun to walk around in.

The first time I came was about 40 years ago. I remember it being so majestically beautiful. I returned to Miami for a visit and wanted to see if this palace was still as magnificent as I remember. It truly was! The views were breathtaking and a sanctuary from the hustle of Miami life. Allow yourself a few hours, there... More

All I can say is Beautiful. Everything about this place is beautiful, amazing, elegant. The gardens are impressive and the dock or marina is spectacular. This place makes for amazing shoots/pictures. We took lots and lots of pictures in the gardens since there is so much to see and everything is amazing. Will visit again for sure.

I felt like I was back at Tivoli! This place is beautiful; gorgeous grounds, beautiful architecture and all at a minimal cost. I would definitely recommend a visit here if you are in Miami!

A nice way to spend an hour on a sunny day. Be sure to spend time in the gardens. It is also nice to walk around the house. There are guided tours that start at 11:00 am, so don't get here too early.

I have been in many museum, palaces, maisons and chateaux in Europe and always was able to take pictures ( without flash) well in this good example of rich man's poor taste in furnishing and decoration you cannot. People are rude entrance is costly for what it is. Really not worth your time. Now from another perspective if you want... More
