It's a beautiful mansion, was owned by James Deering and decorated with a variety of European antiques.
One room looks like Versailles, the next Hampton Court Palace - but this is in Miami, so random!
My favorite is their expansive gardens. Some are styled after English countryside gardens, others like Italian or French gardens. There are fountains, statues, and figurines... it's a great place for photographs, wedding.. take a look with your partners or your family it's always a great tour.
Vizcaya, now called the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, is the landmark Villa and Estate of businessman James Deering, of the Deering McCormick-International Harvester fortune, on Biscayne Bay in the present day Coconut Grove district of Miami, Florida. The early 20th century Vizcaya estate also includes: the extensive Italian Renaissance gardens; the native woodland landscape; and the historic village outbuildings compound. The landscape and architecture were influenced by Veneto and Tuscan Italian Renaissance models and designed in the Mediterranean Revival architecture style. Paul Chalfin was the design director and driving force for the winter residence's resulting excellence. Gives you the feeling of being in Europe in the US.
