Travel agenda: Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice; Chinese New Year; BLVD hotel; Bmibaby; Sunvil
Saturday 29 January 2011
Today: Enjoy culture from three great cities in one place. The Vorticists: Rebel Artists in London and New York, 1914-1918 is a new exhibition at the Peggy Guggenheim Museum in Venice. Running until 15 May, it displays the work of British artists who reacted to Cubism, Futurism and Expressionism (guggenheim-venice.it).
This week: It's Chinese New Year on Thursday, celebrated in colourful style around the world. Festivities are especially dazzling in Singapore, Hong Kong, San Francisco and Vancouver, with fireworks, parades and parties to see in the Year of the Rabbit. On Friday, Los Angeles gets a shiny new hotel in the form of the BLVD on ... yes, you guessed it, Sunset Boulevard. The "urban retreat" promises a heated outdoor pool, elegant rooms, a spa and destination restaurant (luxehotelsunsetblvd.com). On the same day, Bmibaby resumes twice weekly flights between Manchester and Newquay (bmibaby.com).
In the diary: Sunvil is launching a new charter flight from Heathrow to Beja, Alentejo in Portugal from 22 May. The full-service flights will operate weekly throughout the summer and will be the only direct link between the UK and the south-central region (sunvil.co.uk).
