Owner description: 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.

I went with my teenage daughter. She enjoyed it as much as I did, but to be honest, this is a girl who chose to tour the archaeological sites of Greece for her senior trip. The home was beautiful. I rented the contraption for the audio tour, but only listened to a couple of the entries. I would not waste the extra $ on that again. Every room had a written description which explained everything well enough to satisfy my curiosity. It was interesting to see his take on the classics. The gardens were in ways a tribute to classics. There was an outdoor theater area and a maze. The gardens showed definite signs of years of neglect. I do believe they are investing in restoring much of it now. It's a beautiful site and I hope they can maintain it and restore the gardens to their former glory. It's such a gorgeous estate on the Bay and its fun to imagine the parties on the property. There are many parts of the home and grounds that would not be accessible by wheelchair, and many steps could be a challenge to visitors with limited mobility.

We really enjoyed our visit to Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, a Ossis in a very busy city.
The house was lovely to wonder round as was the gardens.
Loads of photo opportunity very interesting, I would recommend a visit.

Two hours were not enough to explore and appreciate this magnificently designed home, its furniture and furnishings. The gardens are excellent, so much history to explore. What a view of the bay. Join a tour of the ground floor, it is worth the time to have a greater understanding of Chicago Industrialist's,John Deering's home.

Definitely recommend visiting for a few hours to take in the house and gardens. They really are beautiful and the gardens are also home to plenty of wildlife. A lot of care is clearly taken in the upkeep of the estate.

Cafe in the grounds with a good range of snacks, salads and wraps including hot and cold drinks.

Lovely way to spend an afternoon.
