Valentino is one of the biggest fashion houses in the world, responsible for dressing the most famous people in the world. Celebrities like Beyoncé, Suga, Jacob Elordi, Florence Pugh, and Naomi Cambell are just a handful of recent wearers-the list is endless and truly prolific. And while getting dressed in Valentino for a red carpet event is a bit out of reach for many of us, it turns out that spending a few nights in Valentino founder Valentino Garavani’s Roman palazzo apartment is not.
Inspirato, a luxury travel company that specializes in more exclusive vacation rentals, has just put the designer’s penthouse for rent on its platform. Palazzo Caetani Garavani includes everything you’d expect from a high end designer’s former residence. It’s tucked inside a 600-year-old historic palazzo in Rome, centrally located to the Spanish Steps and Roman Forum. There’s outdoor living space including a kitchen and grill, plus a secondary rooftop terrace with a hot tub with views of Rome.
Inside the apartment, you’ll find a mix of the historic and modern-there are stone floors and timber ceilings, but also high-end appliances in the gourmet kitchen. Each of the three bedrooms also comes with its own bathroom, which might be the chicest part of the whole place. There’s nothing more luxurious than not having to wait your turn to take a shower.
You have to be a member of Inspirato to make reservations, but creating an account is free. The price of the reservation will vary depending on when you stay and the length of stay. You can book seven nights and get the best rate. For example, for a seven-night booking in March, you can get the room for $2,379 per night. So, you know, not that much cheaper than dressing in Valentino… but at least with three bedrooms you could split the cost among a group of people. Harder to do for a bag.
You can explore the rest of the juicy photos of this palazzo penthouse and find booking options on Inspirato.com.

Mexican restaurant chain Mad Mex has dropped a new protein, and it’s one of the most popular street foods in Mexico.
Enter, Chicken Al Pastor. It’s traditionally made with pork and grilled on a spinning rotisserie with a pineapple sitting a top, but Mad Mex has put its own spin on it, serving chicken bathed in an Al Pastor marinade with a touch of juicy pineapple.
You can order the protein-packed filling in your favourite burrito, bowl, quesadilla, nachos, or in a taco.
As always, these things are here for a good time, not a long time. Pop into your local Mad Mex restaurant, order delivery or through the Mad Mex app today.
