Discover the art and life of "the master of light", a man who left his indelible mark on Rome and Italian art. A man who had a controversial life; a genius who wanted to follow his own rules in a time when artists had to work under strict commissions. He spent long periods of time in exile running from the law and the church, experiencing sickness and extreme suffering while creating his masterpieces which would be mostly forgotten after his death because they were considered too realistic and "modern", onlyto be rediscovered and appreciated in recent history.


Our tour will guide you through churches and collections where Caravaggio's most characteristic masterpieces are set, that portray him at different moments of his short-lived life and write his fascinating story with a tragic end.


The Tour will begin with the St.Mary's of the People Church, with two famous paintings, the Conversion of St. Paul and the Crucifixion of St. Peter. Then, we will move up to the Church of St.Agostino where, on the altar of the first chapel, you will see the famous Madonna of the Pilgrims. Finally, we will visit the national Church of France, St.Luis of the French, which contains three works by Caravaggio: the Calling of St. Matthew and the Martyrdom of Saint Matthew, executed between 1599 and 1600, while St. Matthew and the Angel, placed on the altar, is dated 1602.


The duration of the Tour will be about 3 hours.


Extending the time with an additional hour, it will be possible to visit the Doria Pamphilj Gallery, containing three other splendid paintings of Caravaggio.


The Tour does not include entrance tickets for the Doria Pamphilj Gallery.
