Be Fascinated With Ancient Art at Our Getty Villa Tours
Situated at the easterly end of the Malibu coast, the Getty Villa is a museum that provides you with a glimpse of the ancient world of Greece and Rome. When you book a tour with us, you can attend lectures, watch films, participate in events, and more at the Villa.
but wait...there's more!
The museum complex includes a 450-seat outdoor classical theater, the villa, and a cafe.
You can go to the Getty Villa just to see their building. It's like stepping back a couple of thousand years into a Roman-style villa. To be precise, it's a reproduction of the Villa dei Papiri; a first-century Roman country house unearthed at Herculaneum which was buried when Mt. Vesuvius erupted in A.D. 79.
You will see the villa's collection which is one of America's finest holdings of ancient Greek, Roman and Etruscan art. You'll see objects created over 7,000 years between the end of the Stone Age and the fall of the Roman Empire.
Besides the artwork, the Getty Villa stages performances that include re-imagined versions of classic Greek and Roman dramas, as well as new and adapted works inspired by the museum's holdings or the ancient world.
