Travel back to early twentieth-century Miami on this half-day tour of the Vizcaya Museum and Gardens. Located in Miami's lush suburb of Coconut Grove, this former private estate is a masterpiece of the Mediterranean Revival and Italian Renaissance style.
The house was designed to resemble an Italian palace - a goal that was definitely achieved. The place is simply spectacular and preserves an interesting collection of European art and furniture, all bought by James Deering, the owner of the time, on shopping trips across Europe.
The house is surrounded by stunning gardens, including an orchid garden. Vizcaya was 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. He has also received important occasions, including the historic First Summit of the Americas with President Clinton in 1994.
