In Newport, RI, the leading architects of the 19th and early 20th centuries built magnificent mansions for the nation's social and financial elite. These "summer cottages" provided the backdrop for a society centered on sport, fashion and parties in settings of spectacular natural beauty. Ten of these properties have been preserved by The Preservation Society of Newport County and are open to the public. From the homes of a colonial merchant and leading China traders of the Victorian era, to the great Italian and French Renaissance palaces of the Gilded Age, these houses span over 250 years of American architectural and social history.Visit the Newport Mansions: The Breakers, Marble House, Rosecliff, Chateau-sur-Mer, The Elms, Isaac Bell House, Kingscote, Chepstow, Hunter House, and Green Animals Topiary Garden.

We saw The Breakers and Marble House and thoroughly enjoyed both. The audio tours, which are included in the ticket price, were both excellent. The parking is easy and right across the street. The opulence of both homes is staggering, and we loved seeing them.

Chose to visit these after visiting The Biltmore estate in Asheville, TN, and they were just as spectacular. We purchased the 5 house ticket and made it to the Breakers, Marble House and Rosecliff. Wish we would've had time to visit the Elms and Chateau-sue-mer....More

Wow. What stunning houses. This sort of thing is really not my thing but I still appreciated the beautiful pieces of architecture and had a hard time not envisioning me as an owner way back in the day living the high life.

I think you can see 2-3 houses in a day, especially those located in the Bellevue Ave area. I'd suggest the Breakers, Marble House, The Elms or Rosecliff. You'll enjoy any of these "Homes" Peter

Yes, I believe most properties will allow photography with no flash. Best to inquire at each individual property.
