The Vizcaya Estate and Gardens

Your senses will be astounded as we tour Vizcaya; a National Historic Landmark nestled in the heart of Coconut Grove, Florida. This breathtaking museum features a main house, ten acres of formal gardens and a rockland hammock (native forest). Our tour will depart the Doral Resort on Saturday morning. Upon arriving, you'll pass through Vizcaya's lush subtropical forest to the main house filled with treasures from around the world. From the terrace, you will enjoy spectacular views of Biscayne Bay and serene gardens clad with marble statues. Join us as we visit this beautiful retreat.

Vizcaya was the winter residence of American Industrialist James Deering from 1916 until his death in 1925. Deering was the Vice President of International Harvester Company, which produced agricultural equipment for a worldwide market. The house was intended to appear as an Italian estate that had stood for 400 years. It has 34 decorated rooms with 15th through 19th century antique furnishings and art objects. The expansive gardens combine elements of Renaissance Italian
and French designs.

As you tour this majestic property, imagine how Vizcaya felt as an open-air house filled with the sounds of birds, sudden rain showers and the fragrance of flowers! is a Whitley Collection - Seaway China Production ©2011 | Back to Seaway China website
