Have you ever traveled the world as an art lover? What was your favorite part? Did you learn anything new about art history or culture along the way? I’ve visited dozens of museums over my life and learned so much about myself and how beautiful this planet really is with all of its varied cultures. And best of all, I’ve met some really great people along the way–both artists and travelers alike! So if like me (and many others) you’re a lover of fine arts, here are some tips for getting out there in the world as we explore together:
Start with a budget.
It’s important to start with a budget, because if you don’t know how much money you can spend on travel, it will be hard for your trip to go smoothly. You could end up spending too much or too little money and either way not enjoy yourself as much as possible.
To make sure this doesn’t happen:
- Set aside a specific amount of money for traveling each month. This will help keep your spending in check while also giving yourself some flexibility if something unexpected comes up (like an exciting opportunity).
- Stick to that budget even when things seem expensive (like when there are lots of great art exhibits at museums) or cheap (like when there aren’t many opportunities).
Decide on the cities you want to visit.
Now that you have decided to travel the world as an art lover, it’s time to start planning your trip!
- Make a list of cities where there are lots of museums and galleries. This will help ensure that no matter where you go, there will be plenty of things for you to see.
- Choose affordable places to visit. You don’t want to spend all your money on hotels or flights (or anything else), so choose cities that won’t cost too much money when traveling around them–this could mean staying with friends instead of booking hotel rooms or taking shorter flights instead of longer ones.
- Get good exchange rates when exchanging currency at banks instead of airport kiosks or foreign currency exchanges because those places often charge high fees which could wipe out any savings from using their services compared against using banks instead!
Create a schedule.
A schedule is a great way to make sure you don’t miss anything. A schedule can also help you stay on track, avoid wasting time and get the most out of your trip.
Plan your trip around the exhibits you’ll be interested in seeing.

If you’re planning a vacation, make sure to include museums and galleries on your itinerary. Museums are great places for art lovers because they provide an opportunity for in-depth study of specific artists’ work, as well as insight into different cultures around the world. Some museums even offer guided tours that can help visitors understand the context of the pieces they’re viewing–and who knows? Maybe you’ll learn something new about art history! If this sounds like fun to you but there aren’t any museums near where you live or on your travel route, consider checking out local craft fairs and flea markets instead; these events often feature vendors selling handmade goods from all over the world (including many pieces made by local artists). And if all else fails? Bring along some audiobooks on CD (or download them while at home) so that no matter where in the world we go next time around there will always be something interesting happening nearby!
Set up alerts for shows that interest you.
If you’re interested in a particular artist or exhibition, set up alerts. Sites like Artful.ly allow you to set up email alerts for shows that interest you, so even if they don’t have an app (or one that works well), it’s still possible to keep track of your favorite artists’ work.
Take classes, either online or in person, to learn about art history and culture before you go.
Before you travel, take classes online or in person to learn about art history and culture. Learning about an artist’s style, their time period and subject matter will help you appreciate what they produced. The same goes for learning about the country you’re visiting–its history, culture and current events.
Buy tickets for museums and performances online in advance to avoid long lines, especially if visiting during popular times like summer vacation or holidays.
If you’re an art lover looking to travel the world, there are some things you should know. First, buy tickets for museums and performances online in advance to avoid long lines, especially if visiting during popular times like summer vacation or holidays. Second, avoid popular destinations (like Paris) during peak times (like July). Third: don’t go anywhere near anything that’s crowded!
The truth is that most people don’t spend their vacations wondering around museums with expensive admission fees on their minds; they’re more concerned with having fun–and who can blame them? If this sounds like you then make sure not to visit any attractions during peak times because it will just end up being frustrating and expensive trying to get into places where everyone else wants to go too!
Check out local craft fairs, flea markets and street festivals–these are great places to find local artists and chat with them about their work.
One way to get in touch with local artists is by attending craft fairs, flea markets and street festivals. These events are great opportunities to meet the people behind your favorite pieces of art, and they’re also a good way to get inspiration for future purchases.
Ask them about their work: What inspired this piece? How did you go about creating it? What was your process like? Have any interesting stories about making this piece (or others)?
Ask them about themselves: Where do you live now? How long have you lived there? What brought you here originally (e.g., what city were both of us born in)? Do we share any common interests or friends from school days gone by?
Bring along an audiobook or two on CD (or download them while you’re at home) so that you can listen as you travel from place to place and feel like your doing something productive yet relaxing too!
You don’t have to be a scholar or an expert in art history to enjoy traveling the world as an art lover. You just need to be willing to learn about new places and people, which is something that audiobooks can help with!
Audiobooks are great because they allow you to do something productive while relaxing at the same time–they’re perfect for long plane rides, bus rides, train rides…any kind of ride where you might otherwise feel bored or restless. And if you download some while at home before your trip (or even better: bring along your CD player), then every day spent exploring new cities will feel like learning something new without any effort on your part!
Visiting museums can be fun
Museums are a great way to learn about the world, take a break from the hustle and bustle of everyday life, and have fun for kids and adults alike. Museums can also be educational–if you’re traveling with children (or just enjoy learning), this is an ideal opportunity to make some new friends who share your interests!
So, there you have it: a brief overview of what to expect when traveling as an art lover. We hope this article has inspired you to go out there and experience the world with your eyes wide open!
