The Vizcaya Museum and Gardens include Italian Renaissance gardens, villa, native woodland landscape, and a historic village outbuildings compound.

The landscape and architecture were influenced by Veneto and Tuscan Italian Renaissance models and designed in the Mediterranean Revival architecture style, with Baroque elements.

Previously known as Villa Vizcaya, is was the former villa and estate of businessman James Deering, located on Biscayne Bay in Coconut Grove, Miami, Florida.

The villa’s museum contains more than seventy rooms of distinctive architectural interiors decorated with numerous antiques, which include 15th to 19th-century European decorative art and furnishings.

The villa facade’s primary influence is the Villa Rezzonico in the Veneto region of northern Italy. It is referred to sometimes as the “Hearst Castle of the East”.

Vizcaya has provided the setting for many films, both credited and uncredited. The site is also a popular location for weddings and other special events, given the site’s architectural and natural beauty.

For decades, the estate has been a subject of photography and is a favored site for celebrations.
