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].

Madeira Food on Foot Review

The best food tours go beyond reliving a newly arrived traveler of having to figure out which restaurant or bar to hit first. They also provide context in explaining how a destination’s crops and cuisine tie in with a place’s historical events and different populations. During a vacation in Iceland, 20-year veteran tour guide and proud Madeira native Jaqueline Freitas was reminded of this when she put herself in the hands of a savvy Reykjavik guide leading a street food tour.

Savoy Palace Hotel Review

Savoy Signature Hotel Group continues to generate a buzz in international hospitality about the way its diverse portfolio shapes Madeira’s future as a destination; the brand keeps existing fans (particularly the traditional group of older British and German visitors) interested while drawing younger, more active travelers beyond the confines of Europe. The Savoy Palace, opened in 2019, took on the “legacy” mantle of a predecessor (the former Savoy Hotel) that stood on the same site, and then reopened with a lot of enthusiasm after the height of the pandemic passed.
