  • How many Caravaggio paintings in Rome?

    There are 25 Caravaggio paintings in Rome. Notorious for his rebellious nature and revolutionary painting technique of ‘Chiaroscuro’, Caravaggio’s paintings are some of the most famous in the world. Also known as ‘tenebrism’ this painting style with strong contrast between light and dark, giving images a spotlight effect makes Caravaggio’s paintings all the more striking.

  • What church includes the Caravaggio paintings in Rome?

    There are several churches in Rome where you can find the works of Caravaggio, stunning paintings like: The Martyrdom of Saint Matthew, The Calling of St. Matthew, and The Inspiration of Saint Matthew in the Church of San Luigi dei Francesi, The Conversion of Saint Paul and the Crucifixion of Saint Peter in the Church of Santa Maria del Popolo Church, and The Madonna of Loreto (or the Madonna of Pilgrims) in Basilica of Sant’Agostino in Piazza Navona.
  • Caravaggio died in Rome?

    Milan-born Baroque painter Caravaggio spent most of his artistic career living in Rome. While he spent the last few years of his life moving between Naples, Malta and Sicily, Caravaggio actually died in Porto Ercole – a tiny town in Grosseto, Tuscany in Italy. How Caravaggio died exactly, remains a mystery.

Our guide was very knowledgeable and experienced. Half day tour was just enough to see the main sites and not get too tired.
