The gem and jewel of Miami, Vizcaya Museum and Gardens, is a tribute to the grandeur of Italian Renaissance art and architecture and although the structure looks as though it were built in that era, it was actually constructed by American industrialist  James Deering who lived in the home from 1916 when it was finished, to 1925.

The grand structure which sits on Biscayne Bay, became a National Historic Landmark. The main house with its 34 rooms adorned with 15th through 19th century antique furnishings and art objects are the perfect complement to the lushly landscaped gardens. Overall, Vizcaya is the perfect way to take a trip to Italy while still enjoying all that Miami has to offer.
