Description

Day trip to St. Petersburg, Florida for two (2) guests
Two (2) tickets to The Dali Museum
Complimentary lunch at Sea Salt, St. Petersburg, Florida for two (2) guests​

Located 150 miles north of Naples, St. Petersburg was founded in 1888 and named for the Tsarist capital of Russia. Nicknamed the “Sunshine City,” it has an average of 361 days of sunshine each year and holds a Guinness World Record for the most consecutive days (768 between 1967 and 1969). It is also a city of contrasts, with a well-developed downtown business district, pristine beaches and a vibrant arts scene.

The high point of that arts scene is The Dali Museum, devoted to the legacy of the celebrated Spanish painter. Founded in 1982, the collection includes over 2,400 works from every moment and in every medium of his artistic activity, including oil paintings, many original drawings, book illustrations, artists’ books, prints, sculpture, photos, manuscripts and an extensive archive of documents. The building, which has been described as “combining the rational with the fantastical,” is a large, free-form geodesic glass bubble known as the “enigma.”

After your immersion in 20-century avant-garde art, head to Sea Salt for lunch. The restaurant is a branch of chef Fabrizio Aielli’s popular Naples establishment and features an 80-foot long raw bar and a 20-foot high wine tower which contains over 4,000 bottles. Just as in Naples, the menu focuses on Florida’s finest seafood in artful and innovative preparations. After a day like this, it might be difficult to come home.

INSIDER’S INFO: Reservations are subject to availability and must be scheduled for a mutually agreeable date at least 30 days in advance. Alcoholic beverages included with lunch. Tax and gratuity are not included. Transportation not included. Expires January 31, 2022.
