Outer Peristyle at the Getty Villa

Outer Peristyle at the Getty Villa

The Getty is absolutely incredible and entirely worth the trip to Malibu.  I have no doubt that this over-night trip was a wonderful capstone to our year of Ancient History.  Getty turned his summer home into this villa, modeled from a partially uncovered home near the Bay of Naples.  The Villa provides us with such an inspiring picture of some many things Roman-the architecture, murals, sculpture, gardens, home design.  The Villa allows us an opportunity to walk in a disctinly Ancient Roman dwelling.

swimmingThis was the scene the night before…It was certainly busy, fun and crazy at times, but totally, completely worth it.
