While other trips offer excursions to art museums, only Fine Art Connoisseur magazine can leverage its close relationships in the art world to allow privileged access to locations most tourists never see. Private visits to the homes of artists or collectors, personal meetings with important art professionals, and entrance to exquisite art-related locations will create a lifetime of memories for you and your fellow travelers.

Join Editor-in-Chief Peter Trippi and Publisher B. Eric Rhoads for the Italian Art Trip as they take you to some of the most closely guarded art collections of the region.

This annual trip has become the envy of the art world and sells out each year so you must let us know quickly if you would like to join this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.
