First, enjoy time at leisure for an early lunch on your own at the eateries at Santa Monica Place or along Santa Monica’s 3rd Street Promenade – a beautiful, four-block pedestrian street with a plethora of shops and eateries. This afternoon, we’ll continue to the Getty Villa Museum, the gorgeous estate built by oil magnate J. Paul Getty to resemble a Roman country house in Herculaneum, Italy. Step into the ancient world at this one-of-a-kind destination perched on a bluff overlooking the Pacific Ocean and offering ancient Greek and Roman art, tranquil gardens, and ocean breezes. The Getty Villa is home to an incredible collection of antiquities from the ancient world – here you can explore 4,000 years of ancient art, from the Stone Age to the final days of the Roman Empire. Enjoy approximately three hours at leisure to view up to 1,200 works on display in the newly refurbished and reimagined galleries and stroll through the gardens featuring a reflecting pool, colonnaded walkways, and views of the Pacific Ocean. While guided tours are not currently available, you may download the free GettyGuide app to your smartphone and bring your own earphones to enjoy a free audio tour of the galleries.
