"One's destination is never a place, but a new way of seeing things." - Henry Miller
Cultural breaks ensure you leave with a greater understanding of the place you travelled to than you perhaps ever imagined possible before arriving! Whether it’s a natural scenery, or sights of historical significance, cultural breaks immerse you in the destination of your choice to provide something more than just a tour of the biggest attractions. From Spain’s traditional food and dance, to the harrowing experience of Auschwitz, cultural holidays will expand your view of your chosen city.
It’s impossible to travel to a country and not experience some of its culture, but in order to truly understand the local way of life, you need to immerse yourself. Getting to see the local historical and religious sights is a good place to start, but sampling some of a locations niche activities is a great way to understand the culture there.
Take a visit to a Flamenco show in Seville and take in the stunning display of singing, dancing, finger snapping and hand-clapping that is native to certain Spanish regions. Experience the local cuisine with our tapas, wine and gourmet breaks and sample a countries signature beer with a brewery tour. Cross the Alps by train, stay in the von Trapp House in Salzburg, or take in the Operas at the annual Rossini Festival in Pesaro, Italy. Understand the harrowing history of the holocaust at Auschwitz Birkenau. These cultural breaks are truly specialist breaks that may even be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
