The Vizcaya, was built on the Biscayne Bay in the subtropical Forest in the Coconut Grove area of Miami as a winter residence for James Deering. It was completed in 1922. The Vizcaya was built as a replica of a country estate in northern Italy. The house was designed to be fully visible from the Bay and it is truly magnificent. It was celebrated in architectural and engineering magazines of that time. Photos may be taken in the House but only without use of a flash.

The garden is also reminiscent of those created in Italy and France during the 17th and 18th century. The landscape is designed as a series of rooms each one with its own special look. The garden is breathtaking.

Both the main house and gardens are decorated with various forms of 17th and 18th century art such as ancient Roman sculptures, Renaissance Tapestries and garden decorations. Guided tours or personal audio tours of the house and gardens are offered at an additional cost.
