What do we think?

Join Hotel Alphabet’s Marie-Anne Mancio in gorgeous Rome and Umbria for four days of fascinating Baroque and Renaissance art history. Explore the work of Caravaggio, Bernini and Borromini in galleries, museums, churches – and at the Villa Borghese itself – with the wonderful Marie-Anne, whose lively, expert guidance makes for a marvellous immersion into the intricacies of Italian art. This is a small-group experience which prides itself on academic excellence, and on going the extra mile for delighted guests – you’ve only to read the gushing reviews from past participants to see what makes it so special!

What do they say?

“We’ll focus on the three masters of the Baroque: painter Caravaggio, sculptor Bernini, and architect Borromini. Through them, we’ll explore the naturalism of Caravaggio versus his contemporaries; how High Baroque differed from its earlier incarnation; what was meant by bel composto… and much more.”
