needless to say his art collection is BEYOND amazing, seriously there are no words (well at least i don't have them) to describe the broad scale of ancient artifacts (truly ancient, talking year 200-300 B.C., CRAZY!) he collected over the years. it's truly awe inspiring, BUT, yes there's a but, the thing that holds this location as #1 in my heart (compared to it's newer counter part the getty center, are the soothing grounds, with their manicured gardens, detailed sculptures, calming pools, and soothing fountains.
i could spend half a day just strolling around outside.
i've attached pics below...so weird all the sickly insane artwork and jewelry i saw, and all of my images, but one, were taken outdoors.
