AAA Editor Notes
Vizcaya Museum and Gardens is at 3251 S. Miami Ave. Formerly the winter residence of American businessman James Deering, the European-inspired estate features 34 rooms lavishly furnished with art and furnishings spanning 2,000 years. Of special interest is a 1917 Welte Philharmonic pipe organ. Temporary exhibits also are offered.

Hedges and walls divide the estate into many small gardens similar to those created in 17th- and 18th-century Italy and France. The design features fountains, sculptures and hidden gardens. At the foot of the steps leading to Biscayne Bay, an unusual sculptured barge serves as a breakwater.

Guided and audio tours (in English, Spanish, French, Haitian Creole and Portuguese) are available. Note: Visitors are required to ascend and descend stairs. Only non-flash photography for personal use is permitted in the house.

Guided tours are available. Food is available. Time: Allow 2 hours minimum.
