Each year Fine Art Connoisseur magazine Editor-in-Chief Peter Trippi and Publisher B. Eric Rhoads lead a select group of art lovers and collectors on a memorable trip to a major art destination. This October 18–26 (plus optional pre- and post-trips), you can join them for a behind-the-scenes tour and guided trip to Italy.
It’s truly “behind the scenes,” because Rhoads and Trippi’s deep art contacts allow them access to the true movers and shakers in the art world, many of whom you’ll meet, and allow you entry to some unseen collections of art — often in private homes or palaces — and even access to special places in museums not open to the public.
“As terrific as our destinations are, there is always extra pleasure to be enjoyed from traveling with other readers of Fine Art Connoisseur,” Trippi says. “Everyone on the trip cares about great art and architecture, and we are completely immersed in the experience of discovering them together — asking questions, sharing ideas, agreeing to read more when we get home, etc. It’s a really friendly circle of friends, old and new — and it’s never about showing off, just genuine enthusiasm for the intriguing sites we bring our travelers to see.
This year, during the Italian Art Trip, the group will spend four nights in Florence, then travel by a luxury train to spend another four nights in Rome. There are even options of adding three nights in Milan (pre-trip) and/or three nights in Sorrento and the Amalfi Coast (post-trip).
“We’re a fun group,” Rhoads says. “You’ll make a lot of friends, you’ll see a lot of art, and you’ll create a lifetime memory and gain access to places most others would never be able to provide.”
