Gianni Versace is a famous Italian designer, and founder of Versace, the international fashion house. The brand is known for producing fragrances, make-up, clothes, and house furnishings.

He’s friends and worked with the biggest names such as Princess Diana of Wales, Eric Clapton, Madonna, Elton John, and Sting. Also, he’s one of the first designers who gave a big contribution of linking fashion to the music world.

On 1997, Versace was murdered in his own home, at the age of 50.

Since then, tourists stops at his former mansion to pose for pictures. And just recently, tourists flocks to Miami to stay and feel like royalty whilst staying at Versace’s former mansion.

What’s Inside this Luxury Hotel in Miami?

Did you know that Versace’s mansion is the Third Most Photographed Property in the U.S.? People would mistaken it as a mansion because of its divine aesthetic.

The three-storey building he purchased in 1992 and renovated for $33 million, was sold by Alden Freeman – Versace’s Standard Oil heir. According to Lacrosse Tribune, The Villa Casa Casuarina now is part of the Victor Hotels group, which acquired the mansion at a 2013 auction for $41.5 million.
