MIAMI BEACH, Fla. (AP) - The iconic South Beach mansion where
Gianni Versace lived and died is opening its doors to the public.

The 26,000-square-foot estate known as Casa Casuarina has begun
offering tours for $65.

Tourists get a look at the house's exquisite central courtyard, dining room, lounges, pool and a marble toilet with a golden seat, billed as one of only three in the world.

But the upstairs bedrooms are off-limits on the tour.

Those willing to part with more cash can also stay in one of the villa's
ten suites or join its private club, too.

Versace's family sold the home three years after his 1997 death.

It's now owned by telecommunications mogul Peter Loftin.
