Know More about this tour

Your tour will begin at Piazza del popolo, in front of Santa Maria del Popolo, which holds two extraordinary pieces from Caravaggio and is topped by a magnificent dome designed and frescoed by Raphael. Then, follow your guide to the historic center in the Campo Marzio district, along Via Ripetta, where Caravaggio famously drew his inspiration from the residents of the area.

From here, head to the beautiful church Santa maria della pace, taking in Raphaels fresco of Sybils dance and the angels that adorn the ceiling. Continue to the SaintAgostino church to enjoy a painting and a fresco before moving on to the church of San luigi dei francesi, where the trilogy dedicated to San Matteo is kept, some of the most mysterious and intense paintings ever created by Caravaggio.

The last attraction of your tour will be the Pantheon, one of the most impressive architectural features of the city. It was the first pagan temple to be converted to Christianity and today is home to the tombs of the first two kings of Italy, placed here after unification in 1861.

After exploring the interior, your tour will conclude in Piazza delle Coppelle.

    Maria was terrific. She took us through several of the churches that house Caravaggio paintings. How amazing to see them in their chosen setting. Maria was extraordinary in reviewing not only Caravaggio’s paintings, but the ones nearby. It was a really fabulous tour.

    This tour was amazing!

    This was wonderful. Valentina was so passionate about Caravaggio and we finished at the best restaurant for a delicious small bite to eat and Prosecco and wine. One of my favorites. The churches and Caravaggio came to life for us.

    This was a fabulous tour. We had expected a perfunctory explanation of the work and the artist, but our guide, Jeanette, was a very knowledgable and interesting guide. The background information on Caravaggio's life was very useful in putting his work in context. If you truly want to come to know his work, and to get a very strong experience for this section of Rome, between Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona, this is a great way to do it.

    Our very own private little tour as our group of four where the only attendees! Are tour guide was amazing, extremely educated and fun! We were learning so much while causally stolling the streets and popping into different churches here and there. Complete with incredible wine and really wonderful food made this adventure well rounded. Highly reccomended! Would not suggest bringing children on this tour.

    There were 7 of us from USA age range 22 -56. Jeanette was an awesome guide that made the history come alive. We all loved the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in history, art and food. The restaurant we went to afterwards, Casa Coppelle, was the nicest restaurant we have been to in Rome. Thank you, Jeanette!!

    Our guide was knowledgeable and friendly. It was definitely nice to see the hidden gems of Rome in the churches visited. ,

    Excellent guide, beautiful paintings and a couple of glasses of wine - whats not to like.
    Only caveat: there is a fair amount of walking which some may find daunting.

    This was a great tour and certainly worth the money! Jeanette, our guide, was well informed and entertaining and made the stories behind the art come alive. She wove history, sociology, psychology, and art together to give context to these amazing works. Our tour included three churches and six paintings by Caravaggio, as well as stops to look at some Bernini sculptures. Some days the tour includes two churches and the Spanish Steps instead. The two hours of viewing the art, combined with the wine tasting after, was just right. There is a bit of a walk involved, so wear comfortable shoes and clothing and keep in mind that you will need to cover shoulders in the churches. Highly recommended!
