Malibu's Mediterranean Haven
If you're in SoCal and needing a little bit of Italy in your life, visit the Getty Villa. Enjoy a beautiful ocean-view drive along the Pacific Coast Highway, and find the Getty Villa in Malibu (after printing your free tickets from their website, of course). The Villa has a fabulous collection of classical art and antiquities, a theatre where you can see shows in the summer, glistening pools and fountains in the gardens, and all this overlooking the ocean. The villa itself is decorated with marble and porphyry from Europe and Africa, and the cafe is full of tasty Italian meals and coffee. There's plenty to enjoy both indoors and out...hope your day is as lovely as mine was!
