Art Trips & Tours
We have three 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:
Barcelona: City of the Sea
September 19 - 27, 2017
THIS TRIP IS FULL
Barcelona oozes with cultural and historical heritage and is surrounded by other fascinating places to visit. Highlights of the tour include a guided tour of Barcelona with special attention to its Old Town, with its narrow winding streets of Roman and Medieval times. You will be able to admire the genius of the architect Gaudi at three of his UNESCO World Heritage sites: Park Guell, Casa Mila and La Sagrada Familia, Spain’s most visited landmark. At the Museum of Picasso, Barcelona’s native son, we will learn the source of his artistic achievements. An optional experience is the opportunity to visit the local market, select fresh ingredients, and cook up a meal. Any trip to Spain should, so we include a flemenco show with tapas where passion, percussion, song and dance combine to reflect a unique cultural tradition.
On day trips we will explore the Roman city of Terragona, founded in the third century BC, and admire its amphitheater, which overlooks the Mediterranean and is a model of Roman construction. Other days will bring us to the cava wine area and the medieval abbey of Montserrat perched atop some truly unusual rock formations.

Known for its biodiversity, in a single trip to Ecuador we will experience the charm of a colonial South American capital city, drive high into the Andes Mountains, admire active volcanoes from afar, shop at an Indian market nestled in the mountains, and soak in thermal pools...all before hopping in motorized canoes to glide up the Amazon River for our stay in a jungle lodge!

Trains and Chocolates Across Switzerland!
June 20-29, 2018
ONLY TWO SPOTS LEFT!
If you have ever dreamed of taking a page from novel Heidi and viewing the magical, storybook settings of Switzerland with your own eyes, or wondered what it would be like to take a cable car for a welcome dinner at 4,350 feet among spectacular mountain ridges, this trip is for you.
Highlights include cruising the crystal-clear glacier waters of Lake Thun past picturesque fishing villages and historic castles; climbing aboard two different cable cars for a panoramic vista of the Matterhorn; boarding the Glacier Express train for one of the world’s most famous train journeys, a showcase of the richly varied Swiss countryside out your window; and boarding a train to Gornergrant and it viewing platform at 10,000 feet for one of the most beautiful mountain panoramas in the world.
