Getty Villa tour

If you haven't been to the Getty Villa, it's beautiful! It's modeled after an ancient Roman villa and it houses antiquities, which I absolutely love! The Getty Villa is a recreation of the Villa dei Papiri at Herculaneum, and which is believed it belonged to Julius Caesar's father in law. Almost everything outdoors is replicas to recreate life style of wealthy ancient people through art, jewels, gardens, orchard, fountains, and the pools.

I don't expect to be in group at all time, unless we are taking one of the tours same time, but we may meet at 10:15 am at the Amphitheatre, and start at 10:30 am.

If you are going to the Getty, PLEASE make sure to let me know for sure, because we need to make admission reservations. I need to know whether I would need to make more reservations. Admission to the Getty Villa is always FREE; an advance, timed-entry ticket is required. Parking is $15.

    Absoluitely perfect sunny day for the Getty Villa at Malibu. I arrived late - so I missed the group - but at lunch I did meet Shin. Looking forward to many more - perhaps the Getty Center can be next. Thanks Chris for arranging this Meetup.

    Ok, I am wait-listed but based on your previous comment I assume it is ok to attend if you are able to get a ticket on your own, which I did. One of the few "tourist attractions" I've yet to see in the LA area so I'm looking forward to it. BTW: Do they give refunds if you're not satisfied with the visit? ;-)

    January 18, 2013

    • Chris

      see u tomorrow

      January 18, 2013

  • MARISSA

    Chris...I'm sorry. I'm going to have to cancel. I have been so exhausted with hardly any time off. Please give my ticket to someone else.
