Amazing. Reserve your visit online. 15$ parking. Worth every minute. Some cool children’s activities. Get in touch with them ahead of time for specific activities and events.

We have been going here for years. It is beautiful and peaceful but most important it was built to show what a Roman villa would have looked like. Beautiful building, setting and fantastic collection of antiquities.

Getty Villa, not to confuse with Getty Center, was the original museum and is still a gem on the coast. I love the peace and gorgeous views, the lovely gardens and tranquility pool, and of course the gorgeous recreation of Roman architecture and arts.

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!
