The castle and gardens were built around 1906. Very beautiful restoration. Cost for seniors was only $12. Audio guides and personal guides are available. This tour involves a lot of walking and climbing up and down stairs.(No elevator available) The gardens were just beautiful. Excellent for wedding pictures or even a reception. We did not try the food but there... More

This is a beautiful two-story mansion built around a square courtyard--don't miss the gondola shaped pier out in the bay! The furnishings and tapestries are available to be viewed and guided and audio tours are available. There are several gardens including and orchid stand and cactus grove as well as several fountains and plenty of statuary. The cafe was good... More

We spent a few hours here wanding the beautiful grounds and enjoying the history of the home. The history of the rooms with interesting notes on each with who had stayed there were fun. the ship in the back built to entertain the guests and childern was insiring. Its just a fun way to spend a few hours.

James Deering, of the Deering McCormick-International Harvester fortune created a fanciful estate where there were only Mangrove swamps in an undeveloped area south of Miami. Finished in 1923 he died some two years later, well at least he saw it completed. What it must have been in its heyday, because it is quite spectacular now.

This is such an unusual home and building comparable in majesty to Hearst Castle. It was a relaxing afternoon and the cafe serves very good food - but expensive. The paid tour allow us to learn more about the furnishings, art and lifestyle of the owner as there is limited information on the plaques describing the rooms.

This is just about the restaurant. Bought lunch for 6 people, then went to the counter go ask for a glass of tap water. Nope. And no refills on any drinks. You have to buy bottled water for $2 if you want water, regardless of how much money you have spent there. This is a restaurant, not a snack bar.... More

I knew little about Vizcaya when I went with friends. I found the audio guide helpful. The grounds are beautiful and easily manageable within 1-2 hours. Very pretty.
