Enjoy a full day of architectural discovery in Los Angeles. 

Take a behind-the-scenes tour of the design offices and conservation laboratories at the Getty Villa in Malibu. Renovated in the 90s, the site provides a modern context for the classical architecture while preserving the natural beauty of the canyon site and magnificent vistas. 

Dine on your own at the Villa Café, then enjoy a drive-by narrated tour of some of LA's most iconic architectural structures, the Frank Gehry House, Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, Frank Gehry's Edgemar Center, Irving Gill's Horatio West Court, and the Binoculars Building, all from a luxury coach.

Finish up with free time to explore Abbot Kinney Boulevard - an iconic strip of popular shops, restaurants, and galleries in eclectic century-old bungalows and modern architectural building in the heart of famed Venice, California.
