Berlin, Germany

Berlin has long been a city where new forms of art have flourished. Berlin is home to more than 400 art galleries, and is also a thriving center of graffiti art. The site of the Berlin Wall has always been a place to go to see the most up-to-the-minute art, sometimes even being created before your eyes. If your taste tends towards galleries, there are enough to keep you busy every day of the year. The Neue Nationalgalerie focuses on 20th century work, while the Gemäldegalerie hosts many Old Masters.

Florence, Italy

Florence is a city that was built on the backs of one family — the Medicis. Their patronage led to the creation of thousands of pieces of art, and the invention of many things that are invaluable to our lives today. Just walking through the street you can see gorgeous architecture and beautiful statuary, but the galleries in Florence are where the most sublime art is housed. The Uffizi, the Palatina, and the Bargello all house world famous pieces like Botticelli’s The Birth of Venus or the Madonna of Santa Croce painted in 1285.

The Metropolitan Museum of Art is undoubtedly the most famous, although the Neue Galerie New York, the Guggenheim, and the Design Museum all house spectacular year-round exhibits.
