Travel Agenda: Jardin Escondido; 'Lines of Control'; 'The Artist Traveller'
Saturday 14 February 2009
Book into Francis Ford Coppola's new Buenos Aires hideaway, Jardin Escondido, a six-room townhouse in the chic Palermo Soho district. It can be rented by the floor or in its entirety (coppolajardinescondido.com).
'Lines of Control' is part of a series of exhibitions, opening at the Green Cardamom Gallery in London on Wednesday, until 17 March. The art on display explores partitioning in places such as Pakistan and India, Israel and Palestine and Baghdad's Green and Red Zones (greencardamom.net). Over in Brazil, carnival fever grips Rio de Janeiro from Friday, when a riot of colour and sound engulfs the city over five days of partying (riodejaneiro-turismo.com.br).

'The Artist Traveller: From Gaugin to Klee, from Matisse to Ontani' opens at the City Art Museum of Ravenna on 22 February, until 21 June. The exhibition reveals how travel inspired the work of some of the most celebrated artists (museocitta.ra.it). And in France this summer, holidaymakers can get a taste of bush living in one of Eurocamp's stylish new safari tents, launching at a handful of sites (eurocamp.co.uk).
