Full description
The long history of Rome has been chequered by characters full of controversy and brilliance, yet no one has encapsulated this confounding mix of the high and the low more than Caravaggio, one of the most famous painters in the story of Italian art. On this Caravaggio Tour of Rome, you will retrace his steps through taverns and brothels, palaces and churches, and discover how the troubled life and art of this great genius have remained inextricably linked in the popular imagination of the city. Visit some of Caravaggio's finest works, including The Conversion of Saul, The Crucifixion of St. Peter, the famous Narcissus, and Judith Beheading Holofernes, all in the company of an expert art historian. On this tour you will explore the ancient church of Santa Maria del Popolo, the Palazzo Barbieri, the church of Sant'Agonstino, among other famous landmarks to understand the extraordinary life and work of the artist Caravaggio.
