To quote from their official guide booklet:
Vizcaya, the winter home of International Harvester vice president James Deering ... Built between 1914 and 1916, Vizcaya was designed in the style of Italian Renaissance and Baroque vilas Deering had visited.
The mansion was interesting enough, if a little quirky.
The real attraction is the gardens. They were spectacular and extensive (although they were not as extensive as they used to be evidently). The gardens are stunning. It felt more like we were in Italy than Florida.
Even people who are not into gardens will find these ones spectacular. Besides the plants, it has many statues, pergolas, walls and water features.
