Luxury hotel group Four Seasons are offering culture lovers a unique vacation experience next year that involves visiting six iconic European destinations by private jet.

The 16-day trip, called “Backstage with the Arts’, will see guests transported via a customised 757 private jet complete with a Four Seasons on-board chef and destination experts, to a series of renowned art and cultural venues across the continent. Guests will stay at Four Seasons hotels along the way.

Highlights include stop-offs at Lisbon’s impressive Jerónimos Monostaery, the Duomo cathedral in Milan, the Hagia Sophia and Basilica Cistern in Istanbul, St. Isaac’s Cathedral and Pavlovsk Palace in St. Petersburg, and the Estates Theatre in Prague.

Visits to some of these sites will include after-hours tours, access to areas off limits to the general public, evening galas, live performances and private dinners.

The “Backstage with the Arts’ trip, which is based on double occupancy, will take place from 20th April to 5th May next year.

Four Seasons Hotels was founded by Canadian businessman Isadore Sharp in 1960.
