Themes

We offer an unequalled range of tours and events focusing on archaeology, architecture, art, gastronomy, history, houses and gardens, literature and drama, music, ballet and opera, and walking. Many tours involve elements of various themes, such as a combination of art, architecture and music.

For 2019, new themes in familiar territories include literature in Italy and England, country houses in Ireland and the North West, music in Bucharest and Catalonia, Romans in Spain and Britain, and wine and gastronomy in Champagne and Provence.
