Royal Academy art tours and cultural holidays worldwide

This range of expert-led art tours has been created by us on behalf of the Royal Academy of Arts (RA) and focuses on the art, architecture, archaeology and culture of some of the world’s most fascinating destinations.

The tours are open to anyone with a passion for the arts and will suit enthusiasts and connoisseurs alike, with the aim of enriching the understanding of often complex subjects.

The itineraries have been created by Nova Travel experts in conjunction with the specialist lecturers who will be accompanying the tours, and often concentrate on specific themes or topics. It is the expertise and enthusiasm of the lecturers combined with the pleasure of travelling with like-minded people that make these tours so fulfilling for lovers of the arts.

In many cases, we have included access to artworks not open to the wider public, or talks by the curators of local exhibitions. There is time set aside on most tours to explore further, independently of the group, though if you would like to increase the amount of time you have for independent exploration, Nova Travel’s expert tour consultants will be delighted to arrange pre- or post-tour extensions for you.

We hope you are inspired by the array of fascinating tours and that we will be able to welcome you on to one in the coming year.
