Painting itinery: The painting itinerary may be subject to change subject to weather conditions.
Tutors: Various artists run different tours. Due to unforeseen circumstances, an artist may need to be substituted in order for the trip to proceed to avoid cancellation and disappointment.
Meals: Lunch and dinner are not included in the cost. Meals with wine, salad and bread are approx. $15 – $20. In some locations we stay in furnished studio apartments with kitchens and balconies with seaviews.
Materials: Once your booking is confirmed, the recommended list of materials put together by the tutor of your chosen tour will be sent to you.
You are required to bring along your own painting materials, including easels and stools if required. Please refer to the material list and make sure you are well equipped for the art tour as it is extremely difficult to buy art materials on these islands.
Luggage: You are advised to pack lightly as we travel by ferry to the other islands, and you are responsible for managing your luggage. Only minimal clothing is required as Greece is extremely casual, and you can wash and dry overnight.
Travel insurance: Purchasing travel insurance is recommended.
Banks: ATM outlets are situated on all these islands. Visa and mastercard are accepted in some shops, but it is basically a cash economy.
Additional nights: If you are extending your accommodation before or after the tour on the islands featured in the itinerary, the required payment for the extra nights can be paid directly to Diana when you arrive in Greece.
