Your lunch stop takes place in an area with a pastoral view, allowing you to experience the beauty that has inspired so many of the country’s artists. After lunch, you’ll get the chance to see the Ubud Royal Palace, where the royal family lived in the early 19th century. Today, their descendents keep it beautifully maintained as one of Ubud's central attractions. Next, you’ll visit the Antonio Blanco Museum, which is one of the museums dedicated to one of the most successful artists that Bali has produced. It’s surrounded by rice paddies and rolling Balinese foothills.
The “Palace of Paintings” is Bali’s oldest art museum and showcases a large collection of modern-traditional Balinese paintings and woodwork. The museum’s collection represents important Balinese artistic styles including works from the Wayang, Sanur, Batuan, Ubud, Young Artist, and Keliki schools. It’s located in central Ubud, in the Gianyar Regency about one hour North of Denpasar. The museum’s lush landscaped grounds and quiet galleries of beautiful local artwork offer a welcome retreat from the often crowded streets of Ubud.
