Beautiful Place? Ca d’Zan
This glittering residence happens to be inspired by the palazzos of Venice and was built in the Venetian-Gothic style sometime during the Roaring Twenties. It used to be the home of notorious circus master John Ringling and his family.
The eccentric ring leader lived here right up until he died in 1936. Since then, this house has been donated to the state of Florida and has undergone many extensive renovations.
Today visitors can enjoy tours of the elaborate space, peering into private bedrooms and lavish communal areas. You can also walk the grounds and drink in the tile-embellished terra cotta façade too.
