Miami, known for its Art Deco

The city was named after Mayaimi Indians, who lived around Lake Okeechobee. It means “fresh water”. Here, you will have the chance of discovering a rich variety of cultures and places.

The Art Deco District is not to be missed. Be impressed by hundreds of Art Deco buildings: in particular, those located in South Beach which were built between 1920 and 1940. Elementary geometry decorations such as cubes, spheres and straight lines form the main features of this architectural style which is especially focused on the decorative element rather than functionality..

Ocean Drive is one of the most popular places in Miami. Here all those Miami clichés can be found: sculptured bodies roller skating along the seafront, fantastic beaches, tropical cocktails, blaring Latin music and Art Deco buildings. All the best restaurants, bars and hotels in Miami Beach can be found in Ocean Drive.

Wander around Downtown, where you will discover the famous Port of Miami, shops, monuments, impressive skyscrapers and municipal buildings.

“Little Havana” is a neighborhood founded in 1986. It became home for many Cuban dissidents that escaped from Castro’s regime. Here, they began a new life while keeping all their memories of the homeland alive. We will stroll along the street amongst cigar hand-makers, Cuban restaurants, shops playing vibrant music, all endowing the neighborhood with a nostalgic ambience, as well as its strong aroma of coffee. Máximo Gómez Park is the place where Cuban pensioners gather together to play chess and domino.

A blend of spectacular vegetation in Coconut Grove with the blue-sea water of the nearby Biscayne Bay provides the old houses made of coral rock with a special light. CocoWalk is one of the hot spots in Coconut Grove both for tourists and locals.

Coral Gables is a fantastic neighborhood in the south of Miami with its enormous mansions circled by impeccable gardens and neat streets. The architecture is mostly Mediterranean style, although the influence of Colonial, French and Italian style arises in some of the buildings. We will visit this dream neighborhood – Biltmore Hotel, Venetian Pool -where the actor who starred as Tarzan worked as watchman- and Miracle Mile, one of the main commercial streets in Miami.

We will visit Design District, a neighborhood which was completely condemned to oblivion until recent years. Today it’s a “chic” neighborhood in the city and is full of brilliant art galleries, luxurious restaurants, bars and nightclubs.

Sail along Biscayne Bay and be impressed by the cityscape with the port and mansions of celebrities and millionaires.

Complete your experience shopping, having dinner and walking across Bayside Marketplace.
