4 Days | 3 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.
Revel in the glories of Greek, Roman and Etruscan antiquity at the restored Getty Villa. Modeled after a first-century Roman country house buried by the eruption of Mount Vesuvius, the Getty Villa provides a window into the ancient world’s art and lifestyles. Spend an afternoon exploring this “artifact” and the more than 1,200 ancient works of art exhibited in its 23 themed galleries. Throughout your learning adventure, art professionals illuminate this cultural landmark, its antiquities collection and these ancient cultures.

• On an expert-led walk, discover the Getty Villa's classically inspired architecture and lush Mediterranean gardens.
• Art professionals illuminate this cultural landmark and its antiquities collection.
• Examine Greek, Roman and Etruscan antiquities arranged by themes including Gods and Goddesses, Dionysus and Stories of the Trojan War.
