What You Can Expect

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens with Transportation

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens with Transportation

After complimentary pickup from your Miami hotel, you’ll head to Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, perched on Biscayne Bay in Miami’s Coconut Grove neighborhood, one of the city’s oldest. Once the private winter residence of industrialist James Deering, Villa Viscaya is now a National Historic Landmark. Admire the villa’s gorgeous Italian Renaissance and Mediterranean Revival architecture, opulent European décor, beautiful gardens and lovely setting on Biscayne Bay.

The house was designed to resemble a palatial Italian villa – a goal that was most definitely reached. The place is simply spectacular and preserves an interesting collection of European art and furnishings, all purchased by Deering on shopping trips through Europe. The house is surrounded by stunning gardens, including an orchid garden.

Vizcaya has been visited by some of the world's leading dignitaries, such as President Reagan, Pope John Paul II, Queen Elizabeth, and King Juan Carlos I and Queen Sofia of Spain. It’s also hosted important occasions, including the historic First Summit of the Americas with President Clinton in 1994.

Beautiful place. Chose not to visit the gardens as weather was too hot and humid for us, but spent more time, then, looking carefully at the lovely artifacts and the view of the bay also in the great lunch and gift shop.

This tour was a highlight of our trip to Florida. We especially appreciated round trip transportation to and from our hotel which was provided by Viator. Our only negative about the tour was that we had to separately pay for either/or audio tour or docent-led tour. We misunderstood to what degree Viator provided this.

We expect to use Viator again when we travel to London, as the online listing of events and activities seems very attractive. We appreciate that Viator enjoys an excellent reputation among businesses,so we are confident of choosing reputable and reliable tours and attractions from Viator..
