Full description
This small-group or private tour guides you to Caravaggio’s best artworks in Rome. Exclusive access to a state-of-the-art restoration lab, where Caravaggio's works have been restored.

In Sant' Agostino, find the painting that shook Rome, Madonna dei Pellegrini. This Madonna was most likely a prostitute, appropriately, as Sant' Agostino was the Courtesan's Church. This marvelous painting was restored by the top art technicians who you’ll be meeting later in the art restoration lab. See Caravaggio's masterful series from the life of St. Matthew at San Luigi dei Francesi. Here, Caravaggio's homoerotic gaze is at its most evocative.

Finally, enjoy exclusive VIP access to an art restoration lab. Meet the artist-scientists who devote their days to restoring Rome's masterpieces, and who have restored Caravaggio's great works. Finish your tour like Caravaggio himself and enjoy a complimentary aperitivo.
