A new travel itinerary has been created for art lovers, featuring sites that have been immortalized on canvas by the likes of Cézanne, Monet and Renoir.


Organized by British luxury retailer VeryFirstTo.com, the month-long trip starts in London where the couple will visit Westminster, depicted by John Turner as a crumbling mass of fire in one his signature pieces, “The Burning of the Houses of Lords and Commons.”
