What to expect

If you like your art gut-wrenchingly dramatic and unbearably tense, then you need to get acquainted with Caravaggio. A manic, violent genius, his incredible works caused a sensation in Rome at the end of the 16th century, dramatically ushering in the age of the Baroque. The world of Caravaggio is a world of sensory overload, a rich tapestry of saints with dirty feet being lead to martyrdom and sensual Virgins, of voluptuous angels and provocative nudes. His works vividly capture the sights and smells of Baroque Rome like no other, splendid and squalid in equal measure. This tour, that retraces the time Caravaggio spent in Rome, has especially been designed to give you unparalleled insight into the mind and masterpieces of the art world’s most controversial genius.

Weave through the cobbled streets of the Eternal City, visiting four beautiful off-the-beaten-path locations home to some of Caravaggio’s greatest Roman masterpieces, including 'Rest of the Flight into Egypt', kept in Palazzo Doria Pamphilj, 'The Calling of St.Matthew' inside San Luigi dei Francesi and 'The Martyrdom of Saint Peter' in Santa Maria del Popolo. Discover how Caravaggio’s incredibly innovative pictorial language changed the world of art forever and experience Rome at its dramatic best!
