Art of St. Armands Circle Tour
Discover the art, learn about the legends, and let history come to life on this 90-minute walking tour of St. Armands Circle. This tour focuses on the statues in the area and the intriguing stories, and perhaps even a few myths, behind them. Meet the gods and goddesses represented here and learn where they come from, the culture that created them, and what the statues are made of with your art enthusiast tour guide.
This St. Armands Circle tour expertly shares the interesting stories of these iconic statues, many of which date back to the 1920s when they were purchased in Europe and brought to the United States by John and Mable Ringling.
Parking: Please be mindful that some parking spots on St. Armands are a restricted three-hour duration and the tour takes 90 minutes. There is free parking available off both N. Adams (behind Columbia) and off S. Adams (behind Crab & Fin). These streets are just before you enter the circle if coming from Downtown Sarasota/mainland on John Ringling Blvd.
