Wed 20 May

The morning is spent at the world-renowned Rijksmuseum where you will be guided around galleries filled with Dutch and Flemish masterpieces with time to observe ‘Operation Nachtwacht’, the elaborate and skilled restoration of one of the most important works of art in the world today, Rembrandt’s ‘The Night Watch’. After your visit, a farewell lunch will be served in a local restaurant. The rest of the afternoon is free, with a return to the theatre in the evening for the second opera of this tour.
