Today I visit one of my favourite places in Miami: Villa Vizcaya!

I take a walk in the stunning gardens of the Villa which is now a museum. Full of great art and lavishly decorated rooms, its treasures are certainly a must see if you visit Miami. Sadly no cameras allowed inside the museum, but take it from me, it’s well worth a look into how the super rich and successful in America used to live at the beginning of the century.

The villa and estate formerly belonged to businessman James Deering, of the Deering McCormick-International Harvester fortune, on Biscayne Bay in the present day Coconut Grove neighborhood of Miami, Florida. The early 20th century Vizcaya estate also includes: extensive Italian Renaissance gardens; native woodland landscape; and a 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, with Baroque elements. Paul Chalfin was the design director.

Miami-Dade County now owns the Vizcaya property, as the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, which is open to the public. ‘Villa Vizcaya’ is served by the Vizcaya Station of the Miami Metrorail.

  1. At first, all I could see was Italy in that walk around. However, some of the flora & fauna told a different story. Very beautiful but, I would hate to take a drunken stumble down those stairs at 3:18 🙂

  2. Sweet place, been there before myself love it such a beautiful house even better in person.
     Wish I still was in Florida, I was in treasure island Florida just 8 days ago, fishing was great the highs most of the day was in the low 60's and lows were usually in the 40's, but I fun!. Better than where I live in north Georgia which got 2 inches of snow and ice.
