Cultural Insights

Learn something about your destination

There are certain sights and experiences that tell you more about your destination and the culture than others can. The kind of insights a local would recommend.

So, for example, if you visit Barcelona, as well as seeing Gaudi’s incredible buildings and sculptures, we’ll take you to Camp Nou – FC Barcelona’s football stadium, for an experience of a totally different kind. You’ll enjoy a real sense of the locals’ passion for their national sport.

In Italy we’d take you to the Vatican’s Bramante staircase, usually out of bounds to the general public. A unique double-helix staircase built in 1505; the spiral of carved stone once bore the weight of horses. It’s a great way to see the papal conclave behind-the-scenes. And we’ll arrange your tickets beforehand so you won’t have to queue.
