HOME > JOURNAL > TRAVEL TIPS > Epic Travel Experiences: For Art Lovers

Epic travel experiences are made when every detail is expertly hand-crafted, designed around your personal tastes, interests and curiosity. For those inspired by the arts, the true passion of a destination can be felt away from the tourist boards. Instead, find it tucked in hidden alleyways, down the steps of an underground bar or behind the curtains of a local gallery. Music, dance and theatre can blend together to create a hypnotic amalgamation of the arts and your senses can be enlightened in some of the most passionate and vibrant destinations across the world. Here are the True expert recommendations for the ultimate art infused itinerary.

The Beat of Barcelona

With flamenco’s roots firmly planted in Barcelona, spend an evening in an authentic tablao in the heart of the renowned Spanish city, where the lively dance is performed in a true Spanish fashion, and music reverberates around the enthused audience.

Italian Artisans in Florence

The cultural hub of the Italian Renaissance and home to iconic masterpieces, Florence is an essential destination for art lovers. From Brunelleschi’s Dome to the famous David sculpture, crafted by Michelangelo, Florence leaves no shortage of artistic phenomena to view.

A Traditional Tea Ceremony in Japan

Steeped in tradition and overwhelmingly artistic in its delivery, a Japanese tea ceremony is a timeless way of preparing green tea, often lasting hours. Starting with an authentic kaiseki meal, the ceremony is performed in great detail, down to the hand gestures of the host.

The Streets that Come Alive in Brazil

Tagged as ‘The Greatest Show on Earth’, Rio Carnival is a pure explosion of the arts. For a truly unique and undeniably authentic experience, reserve tickets at a Carnival Ball, where the glitz and the glam of the Brazilian celebrations are in unforgettable force.
