What you'll do

We will virtually walk on the footsteps of Michelangelo Merisi aka Caravaggio using google earth mixed with other visual aids! We'll start from Piazza Navona and then visit 3 stunning churches: San Luigi dei Francesi, San'Agostino and Santa Maria del Popolo and "see" 6 original paintings by the master!
We will walk in the alleys where he lived, loved, worked and....fought until he killed someone!
It will be an opportunity to discover not only his art also his adventurous life (and explore the city centre of Rome at the same time).

Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, best know as simply CARAVAGGIO, was not only a painter, but a “star”!
His adventurous life, full of sensational events, and his revolutionary style made him an undisputed leading figure of Italian art: you can find out everything about on our Caravaggio Experience

He came to Rome in search of fame and died at the young age of forty in exile, banished by the Pope after committing murder. Caravaggio lived a short, dramatic life including the violent, sketchy and dangerous sides.

You will hear the stories about his friends, his loves, the models he chose among the poorest in the city, his favorite restaurants and much more!
If you can't come to Rome, Rome will come to you and, remember, there is always time for questions and there is no stupid question!

Francesca took me and my work team on a wonderful journey through Caravaggio's old haunts, masterpieces, and personality (didn't know how much of a rebel he was). Given the pandemic, it was a nice to feel like me and my team were touring Rome! Thank you Francesca :)

Having a 60th birthday in London in lockdown on a wet February evening was made magical for me and my friends by Francesca and her wonderful Caravaggio tour of Rome. The description an stories behind the paintings was very thorough and she was highly knowledgeable about her subject as well as being friendly and welcoming. I highly recommend this to lose yourself for an hour in 15th century Rome.

This was a really fun presentation from a guide who clearly loves what she is doing. The hour flew by and I'm thrilled to have had a little visit to Italy in the middle of the pandemic!

Caravaggio Curious? Think Raphael and Michelangelo get a bit too much attention? Ever try to get into those Italian chapels and find them always closed? Just looking for a walk around Rome with a charming friend who knows a lot about art? Sign up now. I did this on a lark with a friend who was in Rome a looking at /for these very paintings and she thought it was so much fun, she may drag her sisters along. Francesca loves what she is doing and knows what she is talking about, whether you are a novice or a globe trotter.

A wonderful experience! Interesting and engaging for the whole hour. My family loved it, both the art history buffs who had toured Rome in person and the newbies who had never heard of Caravaggio!

This tour is amazing. Francesca is a wonderful storyteller and makes the 1600s in Rome come alive. I learned so much about Caravaggio's style, how it differs from other painters, and how it fits into the general periods of art history. The hour passed incredibly quickly. Really made me want to visit Rome and see some of these sights for myself.
