    They decorate the house for the Christmas season. The stairwells can be difficult but they do have elevators. The kindle guides are useful.

    Huge place, but the Breakers is even bigger. Just about completely made of marble.

    Offers far more insights into French emulation and art history than the other houses. Very cool.

    560,000 cubic feet of marble never looked so amazing. While there, try to count the number of human faces in the home's rich detailing. Can you even count that high? -WV Read more
