The Getty Villa

We went to the Getty Villa to celebrate Aviva’s birthday.

The Villa is located in Malibu across from the ocean on a hillside. The building is modeled after an Italian villa; one part is designed after Hadrian’s villa. The collection is centered on art of the ancient world.

There are two gardens, call peristyles, one small and one larger. The larger one has a reflecting pool in the middle.

I forgot my camera, so all the shots were taken with my Blackberry camera.
