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.

Well, I love to visit different places and it was time to go to Viscaya Museum. They have nice areas but the garden need a lot of improvement. You can visit the museum 1/2 of the day.

The mansion and grounds were beautiful . We took a tour. The groups are too large and competed for space with non group visitors. The rooms could be better curated.
