Sofitel Rome Villa Borghese invites art lovers to step back into the Renaissance with its new Caravaggio Experience. The experience entails a complete immersion into the work and life of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, the iconic Renaissance painter.

Known as the father of Baroque painting, Caravaggio’s experimentation with shadows and the depiction of the physical and emotional human state reflects an intense mind, and his paintings were simply extensions of the many events and occurrences that happened to Caravaggio in his short life. The Caravaggio Experience takes guests through 18 of his works with a specialized guide leading the way.

In addition to standing before each of these breathtaking works of art, the experience also includes walking tours of Caravaggio’s Roman haunts, visit to several museums and trips to Roman churches where some of Caravaggio’s most widely known pieces, as well as some of his lesser-known paintings, lie.

The experience also features a visit to fencing school, where guests will partake in the 17th-century art of dueling with a Master of Arms, and time with the trainer of lead actor Alessio Boni of the film Caravaggio.

The four-night offer starts at €950 per night inclusive of accommodations and the two-day Caravaggio tour. To reserve this offer, email [email protected].

Fairfield by Marriott Phnom Penh Review

Phnom Penh as we imagined it stretches beneath us: a picturesque, low-rise mix of Southeast Asian and French Colonial styles. When the inhabitants of those buildings look back at us here in the Fairfield by Marriott hotel in Chip Mong Tower, they see the future.

Amansara Review

It was more than a car journey; it was a transition between worlds. At our first hotel in Siem Reap, huge coaches constantly pulled up outside the lobby to deposit or receive international tour groups; we departed in very different style, in a 1965 black Mercedes limousine once owned by King Sihanouk. The mundanities of mass tourism were left behind. We progressed through the chaotic Cambodian streets in regal comfort and soon arrived at a solid gate.
