Artistic adventures

Unleash your inner artist – explore your creative side next time you take a break and experience another culture, too.

Get snap happy in Venice

When it comes to photogenic locations, Venice is up there with the best. It’s close enough for a mini break or a longer stay, and offers photo opportunities round every corner – famous squares, palaces, bridges and, of course, canals. Or hop on a waterbus to Burano to snap its rows of vibrant painted houses.

Create a masterpiece in the South of France

The harsh beauty of the landscape and strong light found here has inspired generations of artists, including Cezanne, Van Gogh and Picasso. Whether you work in watercolours, oils, acrylics or pencil sketches, there’s a holiday for you here – pack your kit and be inspired by the pretty villages and bustling towns or just let the olive trees, hills and mountains get those creative juices flowing.

Pottering about in Morocco

The bold colours and elaborate patterns of Moroccan ceramics are instantly recognisable. The distinctive Berber pottery techniques are centuries old, and you can learn their methods and glazing techniques for yourself at a Berber artisan cooperative. Get hands on at the potter’s wheel and immerse yourself in this fascinating culture.

Barcelona’s beautiful buildings

Whether you’ve only got time for a mini break or a full week’s holiday, Barcelona is the destination for lovers of quirky and challenging architecture. Gaudi had the greatest influence on the city’s look – his organic, often brightly coloured buildings are a feast for the eyes. The city is small enough to explore on foot for yourself, or book a guided tour with an architect to appreciate its buildings, ancient and modern.

From hands-on holidays to laid-back long weekends, Saga Holiday Insurance could provide you with all the cover you need for your creative break – and did you know that as long as you’re 50 or over, the rest of your travel party can be included on your policy too, whatever their ages?

An unforgettable night at St Petersburg’s ballet

As Russia’s cultural heart, St Petersburg is world-famous for its ballet, so during a visit to this incredible city, why not spend an evening watching a live performance in one of the theatres here? The beauty of the show, the incredible atmosphere and the mesmerising dexterity of the dancers are sure to amaze you – even if you’re not a ballet aficionado – and you’ll see why past Russian rulers and aristocracy took such a great interest in the ballet. You will have the option to see the ballet on a variety of holiday departures and ocean cruises.
