EUROPEAN SPLENDOR OF VILLA VIZCAYA & COCOWALK
Tour dates: daily available upon request.
Visit the European splendor of Villa Vizcaya, the winter home of Vice President of International Harvester, Mr. James Deering. Villa Vizcaya provides a unique glimpse of a vanished lifestyle in America. Built between 1914 and 1916, it was designed in the style of the Italian Renaissance villas that Deering had visited and adapted to the subtropical climate of South Florida. Vizcaya was originally an estate of 180 acres and included a farm area, designed to resemble a typical northern Italian village, with a dairy, poultry house, mule stable, greenhouse, machine shop, paint and carpentry workshop and staff residences. The villa has 76 rooms each of which opens onto a bay/garden. Vizcaya contains one of the finest collections of 16th through 19th century European decorative arts yet remains comfortable in scale. After the Villa Vizcaya tour, there will be time to shop at Coco walk.
Price: TBD Upon Request.
