Venetian Art and Culture - 3 nights from £899pp

Capital of a rich and dominant Maritime Republic, late 15th century Venice became a flourishing centre for the arts, with numerous Venetians investing their considerable wealth on commissions by artists such as Bellini, Giorgione, Titian and Tintoretto. The power and prosperity of the Republic and its political institutions had a direct influence on the development of the Venetian School, and it is these links, and the Venetian Republic's rich artistic heritage, that you will explore on this wonderful tour with art historian Dr Peter Higginson.
