Built in 1916 as a winter retreat, this lavish villa is a tribute to the Italian Renaissance. The museum contains much of the original furnishings and artwork, and is surrounded by lush, formal gardens.

The Vizcaya is the best representation of how the extremely wealthy lived in Miami before it became the must stop destination it has become today. The Mediterranean building and grounds especially the back facing the water compares favorably with the great mansions of Newport RI....More

Hi there. How does someone use the Miami Explorer Pass at this location? Do we go straight to the entrance or have to go get tickets first from a ticket booth? Thanks.

Sorry can't help - we had a big bus pass and that didn't work at Vizcaya.
How long does it take to visit once there?

After getting your tickets, I would say 2-3 hours to walk through the mansion and the grounds.
