We got lucky because we learned the famous pool featured in many iconic photos of the Getty Villa was just recently restored! Many National Parks in areas where there are droughts showed support to their communities by emptying their fountains as did the Getty Villa....More

A visit to Los Angeles will be enhanced by a visit to the Getty Villa. Although I enjoy the collection, the setting is the real draw for me. I recommend taking an architectural tour, which is free and was offered every hour during our recent...More

Beautiful setting. Nice place for quiet lunch and cultural experience. Call in advance to secure parking reservation. And then watch "TRUST" about JP Getty!

What a treat for a half day get-away! Mr. Getty's idea to recreate a Roman villa with a museum that explains the early Western civilization era was breathtaking. You realize the intricate craftsmanship of making vases, earrings, necklaces, ornaments, cups and religious incense carriers. A...More

The Villa is surprisingly large and the antiquities are outstanding. The grounds are fabulous. We went for the new Plato exhibit and it was quite interesting. It was our first visit to the site, but it won't be our last. The docents are very knowledgable,...More

Reserve your free tickets online before you go. The art is mostly antiquities but the buildings and gardens are the real attraction. $15 to park. Cafe is expensive but you can bring your own food to the picnic area.

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!
