Art Trips & Tours

We have two trips in the works with Edventures, the boutique travel planners with whom Saratoga Arts has long-partnered for art and culture tours around the world:

Undiscovered Italy: Puglia and the Amalfi Coast
October 29 - November 7, 2018

Begin the tour with a two-night stay on the beautiful Amalfi Coast of Italy and enjoy two nights in Sorrento, the jumping off point for exploring the stunning coast renowned for its grilled fish, local wines, and beaches. Explore the cities of Amalfi and Ravello, where among other sites we will visit Villa Rufolo, a Moorish palace with panoramic Mediterranean views. Tour Paestum, the most important ancient Greek site south of Naples with three massive Doric temples and incredibly delicious mouthwatering buffalo mozzarella. Journey to Pompeii for a guided tour of this city buried by the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in AD 79. Then travel east and south to Puglia, the "heel" of the boot of Italy, which we are calling the "Undiscovered Italy" portion of our trip. Here the first stop is in Matera, the UNSECO World Heritage Centre named the "European Culture Capital of 2019" famous for its cave dwellings, subterranean architecture, and more!

English Heritage Tour with Jane Austen
September 3-12, 2019
Led by Dr. David M. Shapard, European Historian and author of The Annotated Pride and Prejudice and other books on Jane Austen

The tour uses the lens of one of England’s greatest writers to explore some of the finest examples of English heritage. These include the gorgeous eighteenth century city of Bath as well as other historic towns and villages, the cathedrals and churches of traditional England, the Royal Navy, and the grand houses and gardens of the gentry and aristocracy. Jane Austen knew all these places and institutions well and made them the principal settings for her novels, and we will follow in her footsteps to get to know them ourselves.
