We had a great tour guide on Saturday explain the history and architecture of Getty and the Villa. The $275 million budget can be seen with the intricate details and quality of work.

The grounds are lovely, and have a beautiful view. The museum contents are okay, but the venue is really what the attraction is.

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!
