The Getty Villa in Malibu is the original Getty Museum, which was built by J. Paul Getty to replicate an ancient Roman villa buried by the volcanic eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in 79 AD. This gorgeous estate perched on a hilltop overlooking the Pacific Ocean is the only museum in the United States solely devoted to antiquities from the Mediterranean region. Redesigned as an expanded center for the study and conservation of classical art, over 1,200 Greek, Roman and Etruscan relics are available for viewing. The unique collection offers 7,000 years of ancient art, from the end of the Stone Age to the fall of the Roman Empire, and includes monumental sculptures as well as artifacts of everyday life. Your day excursion includes escorted deluxe motor coach transportation, admission to the Villa, four hours to explore the museum at your leisure and have lunch on your own at the museum’s cafe, which serves casual Mediterranean fare. For more information about special exhibitions, please visit the Getty website at www.getty.edu.
