Petit Futé's opinion on THE GETTY VILLA

Vintage plate 2020

It's a little bit the little sister of Westwood's Getty Center. Jean-Paul Getty is known for being one of the richest men in the world. Collector, he had a villa built in the 1970 s to shelter his antique potteries and his paintings from masters. It presents paintings, engravings and sculptures, as well as temporary exhibitions. The museum which now houses collections is itself a collector's piece: the reproduction of a villa of Herculanum near Pompeii, which was buried under the ashes of Vesuvius in 79 BC, during the eruption of the volcano. It is a place of another time with its swimming pool surrounded by colonnades, Mediterranean trees, marble staircases. Niches contain statues from ancient Rome; sculptures and pottery find a new dimension. Jean Paul Getty's collections are showcased with an intelligent presentation and video videos. Among the Greco-Roman antiquities, we will admire vases and mosaics. Book enough time to explore the peristyle and its beautiful gardens before heading down to Malibu or Santa Monica, neighboring neighborhoods.

Un joyau
La villa Getty est un joyau, peut-être un peu kitsch, mais un vrai rêve hollywoodien. Un véritable écrin pour présenter de magnifiques collections archéologiques. Elle transporte immanquablement hors du temps, c'est une des ces facettes de la ville qui fait qu'on aime Los Angeles.

Pour sortir des bouchons et de la ville, rien de mieux que l'étonnante et reposante Getty Villa, au milieu d'un parc ombragé rappelant la Méditerranée et dans lequel déambulent cerfs et biches, cette villa accueille une collection d'art Antique et d'expositions culturelles et patrimoniales. A voir!

Un bijou pas si bien connu du grand public à l'entrée de Malibu. C'est une magnifique reproduction d'une villa pompéienne, dont on peut visiter l'intérieur qui détient des collections d'objets de l'époque romaine, et les magnifiques jardins parsemés de statues, d'une piscine (où on ne peut se baigner) et de salles de colonnes. L'entrée est gratuite mais vous devez préréserver sur leur site pour qu'il n'y ait pas trop de monde au même moment.
