Imagine hanging out in the assembly rooms of Jane Austen’s Bath, catching up with Mozart in his birthplace Salzburg, seeing a Broadway musical in New York or getting in touch with sounds of the orient at a sitar performance in Calcutta.

You can indulge your interest in arts, literature and music on your next vacation by visiting the destinations described in esteemed novels or taking in opera and concerts. This kind of travel is the perfect way to see the locations, landscapes and cultural backdrops that inspired great authors, poets, composers and artists while gaining an education at the same time.
