The hotel chain’s new travel package is a must-try experience for European culture vultures with deep pockets.

Are you, like us, struggling to decide which European city to visit this summer for your culture fix?

Well contemplate no more, as watching the opera in Prague’s legendary Estates Theatre; dinner at a renowned Parisian three-Michelin starred restaurant; private limited-access guided tours of Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia and il Duomo in Milan; and a cocktail reception within Lisbon’s ancient Jeronimos Monastery can now all be enjoyed in one trip.

Those cultural gems are just a few examples of what is on offer with the ambitious newly launched Backstage with the Arts package from hotel chain, The Four Seasons. Oh, how much will this exclusive holiday set you back? Just a cool AED 250,000.

Taking off in April 2015 (bookings are now open), travellers will be jetted around Europe’s cultural capitals – on a customised private jet – for 16 days of unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to some of Europe’s most exciting cultural experiences.

Organised by La Fugue – renowned for tailoring distinguished itineraries that focus on art, classical music and opera – the trip takes in six stops at Europe’s most notable cities.

Now, of course, any trip of such high art, will needed to have some high-class transport to go along with it, so you can forget about queuing up at check-in and take your seat on a specially outfitted Boeing 757. The plane is customised to seat just 52 guests and designed for maximum comfort.

Because, any lover of the arts will know that a little bit of preferential treatment goes a long way – and in this case, literally.
