Skyway Bridge & A Day at The Dali with Tapas
Two hours from home but a world away. Wrap yourself in the art and culture of Spain
We'll be stopping at the famous Sunshine Skyway Bridge Pier for fresh air and photo opportunities!
The Dali Museum
Enjoy breakfast and fun with your Joyride tour guide as we make our way to St. Pete via the famous Sunshine Skyway bridge for an amazing tour of one of Florida’s most renowned museums: The Salvador Dali. The Dali houses the largest collection of the artists work outside of Europe including 8 of the 18 Masterworks Dali produced. Located on the St. Pete waterfront, the building is a masterpiece of its own. Architect Yann Weymouth, who worked with I.M. Pei on the Paris Louvre pyramid, created the design that AOL Travel lists as a place to visit before you die.
Once we enter the museum, enjoy a 50-minute docent tour then spend an hour experiencing Dali and other visiting art works from Goya to Andy Warhol. Your tour guide will be with you in the museum if you need anything.
We will meet, at the assigned time, at Café Gala for a relaxing family style Tapas lunch, included with ticket. Named after the artists wife, Galla is designed to create an educational and culinary experience by introducing us to Spanish food and history. Tapas (meaning small plate) appetizers are a specialty as well as espresso, Crema Catalan and Cava Rosado – Spanish rose champagne. Let us know if you have any dietary restrictions.
After lunch we will stretch our legs in the Avant Garde Garden, take a group photo in front of the Wishing Banyan Tree then head for home.
Insider Florida Special Treat* Time and weather permitting, we will explore 100 year old Sunken Gardens - called Florida's oldest roadside attraction. You will see cascading waterfalls, exotic plants, some a century old, and of course the pink flamingos. Take a stroll and take away a nostalgic memory of a special Florida of yesteryear.
Our traditional refreshments will be served on our relaxing ride home listening to music from the artists time: Jazz, Blues and Broadway.
