“Let an art expert guide you through the heart of Rome’s city center in the footsteps of one of the most innovative and controversial artists of all times: Michelangelo Merisi, better known as Caravaggio.”
In this exclusive tour you will walk through the streets where he spent most of his short and troubled life and visit the churches that contain some of his most famous masterpieces. A unique journey through history during which you will learn about his life and what made his works both revolutionary and shocking in the baroque era.
Following the tour, you will be welcomed in a cozy art studio where we will recreate the special environment and atmosphere of Caravaggio’s laboratory in the heart of Rome.
