Food and drinks on your own. Concerts are included.

Vizcaya Museum & Gardens
Vizcaya is one of the country’s most intact remaining estates from the Gilded Age. Although the house was intended to appear as an Italianate villa, innovative building techniques and design styles were used along with the most modern technologies and features of the time. In 1914, Deering enlisted 1,000 workers to bring his dream home to life in Miami. He and his design partner scoured Europe for the finest furnishings, antiques and paintings. The duo imported gilded panels, carved mantels and fresco ceilings from Tuscany and France to line the villa walls. It took years to perfect the mansion’s 70-plus rooms, 34 of which overflow with treasures dating back to the 15th century. Lunch at Bubba Gump’s is included prior to our tour.
