Often clubbed with a visit to the Getty Centre, the Getty Villa has a more laidback vibe to it. As if an instant trip to Greece or Rome this villa is abundant with studies of art forms like sculptures and paintings dedicated to ancient Greece, Etruria and Rome. With a collection exceeding a whopping 44,000 items, some dating back to the period of 6,500 BC to 400 AD, you can easily spend a good amount of time here on a sunny day. Here you will even find the iconic sculptures of Victorious Youth and Lansdowne Heracles. The museum is a result of the founder, J. Paul Getty running out of space to accommodate his collection in his house. So, he thought of opening the Getty Villa adjoining his house.
