Fee: Book Early for $65. For booking made after 6/2, fee will increase to $75. The J. Paul Getty Museum’s goal is to make its collection meaningful and attractive to a broad audience by presenting and interpreting the collection through educational programs, special exhibitions, publications, conservation, and research. The location and view from the one billion dollar center is as spectacular as the architecture and 54 galleries containing some of the world’s major pieces of art. At this  articular time, Getty Center holds a major exhibition that explores the artistic interplay between the three great cultures of Egypt, Greece, and Rome from about 2000 BC to AD 300. There will be a number of other fantastic exhibitions, including: • Medieval India and Europe which highlights the spiritual motivations for creating and owning portable and devotional artworks • Exhibition of expression offering a close up look at the range of human stories that facial expressions and photographs can tell • Contemporary and modern outdoor sculpture and architecture. Gallery teachers, curators, and docents lead free guided tours of the galleries, architecture and gardens throughout the day.

Fee: Book Early for $69. For booking made after 6/30, fee will increase to $79. Itinerary slightly changed due to the relocation of L.A.Times Building. The tour at L.A. Times Building has been replaced with a visit to the Broad Museum. Downtown LA is changing, and in this small piece of it you will have the chance to experience some of the energy fueling its transformation Just west of what was LA’s central business and entertainment corridor is an area called Bunker Hill. One hundred plus years ago, before the Pasadena freeway began taking people out of the city and its hills were flattened to make room for modern buildings and plazas, the Bunker Hill neighborhood was home to stately Victorian mansions and considerable wealth. Our first stop will be at the Broad Museum where we will enjoy exploring the collection in the galleries. The exhibition presents more than 20 artists with featured works ranging from painting and sculpture to photography, film, and installation. Then we will stop near the Grand Central Market. Operational since 1917, Grand Central Market was a one-stop destination housing grocers, butchers, bakers, and fishmongers. Over the decades it has evolved, and today it is a lively emporium housing an eclectic mix of food vendors. Across from the market and built in 1901, you can make the steep climb from Hill to Olive Street, like one of the original neighborhood’s upper-class residents on the recently refurbished Angel’s Flight Railway. For $1, a funicular will carry you 298 feet on the world’s shortest railway. A mere .3 mile walk from here is what Flavorwire calls one of the “20 most beautiful bookstores in the world.” The Last Bookstore is a 22,000 square foot wonderland of new and used books, vinyl records, graphic novels, galleries, and shops in what is one of the largest independent books left in the world. Originally the Citizens National Bank building when it was built in 1915, this bookstore is full of surprises and is definitely worth the visit. Finally, if you have ANY time to spare, consider buying a ticket for OUE Skyspace L.A. to get a panoramic 360-degree view of LA from the 1000 feet high observation deck of the iconic U.S. Bank Tower. Imagine what was and what could be in this changing 3½ block area of downtown LA.

Fee: Book Early for $65. For booking made after 7/28, fee will increase to $75. A re-creation of a Roman country house, the Getty Villa offers a taste of life in the first century A.D. The Villa‘s tranquil gardens with fountains, arbors, and reflecting ponds feature designs inspired by ancient Roman models and plant species from the ancient Mediterranean. The gallery is scheduled to open newly constructed space with new displays of objects that have not been on recent view. The new display will also give visitors a different perspective on the art of antiquity. The collection and changing exhibitions at the Getty Villa offer 7,000 years of ancient art, from the end of the Stone Age to the fall of the Roman Empire. We recommend that you bring a snack to eat on the bus. Plan on eating lunch at the Villa, or you may bring your own lunch to eat at the site.
