What to expect

Discover all the places in Rome where Caravaggio’s masterpieces are kept, marvel at stunning paintings, discover beautiful churches and learn the most interesting stories about the artist's troubled life.

While most other Italian artists of his time followed the conventions of late mannerist painting, Caravaggio depicted the stories of the Bible as visceral and bloody dramas. He staged the events of a distant sacred past as if they were taking place in the present day, often working from live models whom he depicted in starkly modern clothes. He accentuated the poverty and common humanity of Christ and his followers, the Apostles, Saints and Martyrs, by emphasizing their ragged clothing and dirty feet. He also developed a highly original form of chiaroscuro, using extreme contrasts of light and dark to emphasize details of gesture or facial expression.

This tour will retrace the emotional and intense journey of the man's soul and spirit and it will question the impact of art in life and of life in art. Begin your experience visiting the Church of Santa Maria del Popolo, where you'll admire 'The Conversion of St. Paul on the Way to Damascus' and the 'Crucifixion of St. Peter'. Head to your next destination, the Church of San Luigi dei Francesi, located between the Pantheon and Navona Square. Admire paintings representing stories from the life of St. Matthew, housed inside the famous Contarelli Chapel. Lastly, reach the Church of St. Augustine, one of the most important of the Italian Renaissance and get the chance to closely admire the 'Madonna di Loreto'.
