Vizcaya Palace Museum and Gardens

Miami is often called the Magic City, and if it truly is, this opulent Italian Renaissance-style villa, the housing equivalent to a Fabergé egg, is its most fairy-tale residence. Built for industrialist James Deering in 1916, Vizcaya Palace brims with 15th to 19th century furniture, tapestries, paintings and decorative arts.

The poetic seaside grounds, which front Biscayne Bay, are full of splendid gardens (including a secret garden), beautiful fountains, sculptures, elegant pools, a charming Florentine gazebo, canals running everywhere and lots of trails. The landscape and architecture were influenced by Veneto and Tuscan Italian Renaissance models and designed in the Mediterranean Revival architecture style.

Nearly 200,000 people visit Vizcaya each year including some of the world's leading dignitaries such as President Reagan, Pope John Paul II, Queen Elizabeth of England and King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia of Spain. In 1994, the historic Summit of the Americas was held at Vizcaya with President Clinton and the 34 leaders of the Western Hemisphere.

Practical Info

The Vizcaya Palace Museum & Gardens is located in Coconut Grove, just south of downtown Miami and the Rickenbacker Causeway. Nearby attractions include Barnacle State Historic Park and the Miami Museum of Science & Planetarium. Coconut Grove, itself, is worth a visit for shopping on Cocowalk & Streets of Mayfair or just taking in the mellow vibe of the neighborhood.
