Art GalleriesTours & Activities
Art transcends language, and speaks to us across boundaries of culture and nationality, so visiting local art galleries is the perfect way to spend part of your time on holiday. And if you’re lucky enough to be near one of the world’s great galleries, brimming with internationally famous works, then the temptation to spend an hour (or six) roaming along walls of paintings, sculpture, photography or ceramics might just prove irresistible. Ogle Velazquez masterpieces in the Prado, Michelangelo ceilings in the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel, or Rothko abstracts in the Tate Modern. You’ll come away with the memory of beauty and maybe even a new perspective on the world...and with the cafe and giftshop still to look forward to!
