Art History in Focus holidays are unique in that every trip is especially planned in order to include more unusual elements such as private viewings, exclusive guest lectures and visits to lesser-known sights. Accommodation is carefully chosen and evenings are always sociable and convivial, as a special emphasis is placed on sampling local wines and dishes in good restaurants.

Enjoy a free case of fine Italian wines for every 4 tours you book with us.
