The Getty Villa is the older of two Getty museums in the Los Angeles area. This sprawling, elegant compound of new and old stone buildings houses oil tycoon J. Paul Getty’s extensive collection of Roman and Etruscan antiquities. With a combination map and timeline that illustrates how cultures and alliances of the ancient world were interconnected to beautifully preserved coins, jewelry, and objects d’art, the villa brings history to life. After exploring the artifacts, you can enjoy the outdoors with a walk along the rectangular pool with its frescoes, statues, and fountains—plus a stunning view of the Pacific that once only a Getty could afford. You’ll travel along the famous Pacific Coast Highway through Santa Monica and Malibu and visit the Farmers Market for lunch.
