On our last day in Santa Monica, we decided to visit the nearby Getty Villa, where we had been over three decades ago. I wasn’t overly enthusiastic, as we had recently returned from Greece and Italy, where I so love not only visiting the museums,...More

Whether you live in Los Angeles, or are here on a vacation, this is a MUST SEE very memorable experience. Plan to spend several hours enjoying the historic building and artwork. It's rich with so much history and beauty it will be an everlasting memory.

We really didn’t expect such a good visit at Getty Villa! It blew our minds to see the historic times before our eyes. It was worth every minute there as it really brought us so many years back in time.

The Getty Villa is the setting of the former Getty Museum, now in Brentwood, and still worth a long visit for art lovers and history buffs alike.

How far is Anaheim? I’d get a hired car if not an uber as it’s better to get this. I’m not sure if there are your companies that take you there but this may be possible. Enjoy it’s an amazing villa!
