Didn't really understand why we had to order $0 tickets online, but pay $15 for parking at the gate and nobody asked us for our reservation/ticket info. But, regardless, we enjoyed seeing the Getty Villa. The buildings, art, gardens were all very beautiful. The only...More

With reservations online and plenty of parking once we arrived in mid afternoon, we explored what exhibits were still open as many were being rotated or changed. They have very old pieces, sculptures, jewelry from BC. We only spent an hour there this visit but...More

The Getty Villa itself is lovely with a very interesting collection. Getting back to Santa Monica by bus was impossible and really marred the overall experience. We successfully caught the bus TO the Villa. On leaving we just missed a bus then waited 45 minutes...More

The Getty Villa exhibits an ambiance of Roman times. I can only imagine watching a small intimate performance in the amphitheatre and courtyard. The gardens were carefully designed; and the art work is similarly of that time predominately. The Getty Villa makes for a very...More

A beautiful replica Roman Villa, complete with amphitheatre. The Getty Villa has lovely formal gardens and cool inner courtyards. It houses an extensive collections of Roman mosaics, statues and other relics. A “must” for anyone interested in classical antiquities. The setting is perfect with beautiful...More

Went to the villa after the Museum. What an amazing collection of art. It boggles the mind knowing one man collected these pieces and, seemingly, loved every one. The collections were varied and beautifully displayed. And very different than what’s in the Getty Museum. The...More

We registered online and just indicated how many in our party. They sent an eticket to my phone for each person in our group. The fee is a parking fee so you do not actually pay per person.
