A 70-room Italian Renaissance mega-palace inspired by 16th-century Genoese palazzos, Breakers is the most magnificent Newport mansion. At the behest of Cornelius Vanderbilt II, Richard Morris Hunt did most of the design (though craftsmen from around the world perfected the decorative program). The building was completed in 1895 and sits at Ochre Point, on a grand oceanside site. The furnishings, most made expressly for the Breakers, are all original. Don't miss the Children's Cottage on the grounds.

Admission also includes entry into the Breakers' Stable & Carriage House , also designed by Hunt, on the west side of Bellevue Ave.
