CARAVAGGIO TOUR – ROME GUIDES

The Caravaggio Tour aims to allow the analysis of Caravaggio’s pictorial work, which has given Rome an unmissable series of paintings, six of which are hosted in three churches. So, the “master of light” will have no more secrets for you!

We will start with the Church of Santa Maria del Popolo where, in the Cerasi Chapel, two famous paintings depicting the Conversion of St. Paul and the Crucifixion of St. Peter are exhibited.

After that, it will be time to move on foot to the Church of Sant’Agostino where, on the altar of the first chapel on the left, there is the famous Madonna dei Pellegrini, dated between 1603 and 1606, with crudely realistic details.

Finally, you will have the opportunity to visit the Church of San Luigi dei Francesi, which contains three works by Caravaggio: the Vocation of St. Matthew and the Martyrdom of St. Matthew, executed between 1599 and 1600, while St. Matthew and the Angel is dated 1602.

In addition to it, the route will also develop among the most famous places of Caravaggio’s tormented Roman interlude, until his rocambolesque escape after the murder of Ranuccio Tomassoni.

DETAILS OF THE CARAVAGGIO TOUR

The lenght of the Tour of Caravaggio will be about 3 hours, and will include the entrance to the three Churches mentioned above. For further details, you can also include a visit to the Doria Pamphili Gallery, containing three masterpieces by Caravaggio. In this case, the duration of the Tour should be considered extended to 4 hours.

If you want to admire other masterpieces by Caravaggio, you can also participate in the Tour of the Vatican Museums or the Borghese Gallery.

The Tour does not require the payment of any entrance ticket, except for the possible entrance ticket to the Doria Pamphili Gallery.
