Gianni Versace was murdered by serial killer Andrew Cunanan on the front steps of the fashion designer's Miami Beach mansion in 1997. To this day tourist visit the home and stone steps of the famous mansion to take photos. That is until now. Luxury Hotel Villa Casa Casuarina is now open for tourists to book a stay at one of the rooms of the famous Gianni Versace mansion.

Versace turned the 24 apartments into 10 large suites in the original house
He lined the pool with 24-karat gold tiles

Reservations are required for dinner, but guests can walk into the bar for drinks
American Crime Story was filmed over the course of about a month at the hotel

They include this mosaic of Versace's signature Medusa head

The blue-and-cream-colored Azure Suite includes a king bed and two full-sized beds/sitting alcoves
