J. Paul Getty Villa
Museum in Pacific Palisades
What Airbnb hosts say
Iconic and beautiful, the Getty Villa is located on PCH, also on your way to Malibu. It is pretty much a must see in Southern California if you are into art of the ancient world. If you simply want to wander around a beautiful and unique and peaceful setting and pretend you are in Ancient Rome, this is it! The Getty Villa is modeled after a first-century Roman country house, the Villa dei Papiri in Herculaneum, Italy, and it is exquisitely done, even to the point of the gardens which abound with the herbs and plants one would have found near Vesuvius. There is a nice place for lunch. Since Southern California's weather and plant life and coastal region is virtually identical to a Mediterranean climate this was the perfect spot for the Getty Villa. Don't miss the Getty Museum in Brentwood for another completely amazing experience.
