Vizcaya - Travel tips Miami Beach - Weekly rentals Miami Beach
Vizcaya is a National Historic Landmark; we're also a museum owned by Miami-Dade County and accredited by the American Association of Museums. Vizcaya is open to the public 364 days each year, and we invite you to visit this serene and stunningly beautiful retreat in the heart of Miami. Built by agricultural industrialist James Deering in 1916, Vizcaya Museum & Gardens features a main house, ten acres of formal gardens, a hardwood hammock, and soon-to-be-restored historic village
For grownups, Vizcaya--a National Historic Landmark--- is a feast for the eyes, an architectural curiosity amid Miami's modern sprawl, and a fascinating piece of history. Kids will enjoy running around the beautiful seawall area, including this gazebo, and exploring the elaborate gardens-- there's even a Maze Garden. They'll also like exploring the Vizcaya's interior and peering into the villa's ornately-decorated rooms, which contain tapestries, antiques, and other rarities collected on James Deering's trips to Europe. Vizcaya is a lovely evocation of two different eras: Renaissance Italy, as rendered by an impassioned admirer nearly a century ago.
