When you leave on a jet plane as part of the latest Four Seasons Private Jet Experience, you’re not just getting a ticket to touch down in Europe’s most exciting cities starting in April 2015.
You’re also getting a once-in-a-lifetime chance to go Backstage with the Arts. This new 16-day package entitles guests to unprecedented behind-the-scenes access to some of Europe’s most celebrated cultural institutions.
Just how did Four Seasons get the key to unlock these eye-widening experiences? By partnering with La Fugue, Paris, a company renowned for creating itineraries focused on art, classical music and opera. Here’s a list of the highlights that correspond with each hotel stay:
Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon: History buffs will revel in the private after-hours tour of the impressive Jerónimos Monastery, a UNESCO World Heritage site, followed by cocktails and snacks inside its elaborate late Gothic walls and arches.
Four Seasons Hotel Milano: Exclusive - and we mean really exclusive - access to the iconic Duomo, including areas of the ancient cathedral (the fifth largest in the world) not traditionally open to the public.
Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at Sultanahmet: If you’ve ever wanted to wander through architectural wonders such as the Hagia Sophia and the Basilica Cistern after hours, now’s your chance. Istanbul’s most storied buildings await.
Four Seasons Hotel Lion Palace St. Petersburg: Your evening of feeling like Russian royalty begins with a private tour of the extravagant St. Isaac’s Cathedral and ends with a gala at Pavlovsk Palace, once the hunting grounds of czars.
Four Seasons Hotel Prague: You won’t have to sing for your supper but you will catch a special performance at the historic Estates Theatre, where Mozart’s opera Don Giovanni famously premiered in 1787.
Four Seasons Hotel George V, Paris: Go to new heights of gourmet dining with a private dinner at the renowned Le Jules Verne, a Michelin three-star restaurant in the Eiffel Tower. There, you’ll savour a reinterpretation of classical French dishes while you enjoy an unbeatable view of the City of Lights.
