Vizcaya Museum and Gardens

Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is a National Historic Landmark, an amazing retreat in the heart of Miami. Vizcaya was home to James Deering and the large staff that managed the estate, and was built in 1910 in the lavish Italianette style. The stunning estate features a Main House, ten acres of formal gardens, and a rockland hammock (native forest).The inside of the house has 34 beautifully maintained rooms, art, architectural and design treasures from around the world. Outside, you'll enjoy spectacular views of Biscayne Bay from the ornamental breakwater, colorful orchids in the David A. Klein Orchidarium, and the serene gardens, fountains and the statues that inhabit them. Spend a relaxing afternoon at Vizcaya, touring at your own pace, and with an accompanying audio tour. There is café on site for lunch or snacks.

*Vizcaya is easy to reach on public transportation from the Hyatt Regency, or anywhere on the Metrorail line. (Vizcaya Stop).
