Caravaggio, from the dramatic paintings to the violent life

The Calling of Saint Matthew Caravaggio
Caravaggio, from the dramatic paintings to the violent life

Stroll around Rome’s historical center and discover the tumultuous life and amazing masterpieces of Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, the greatest and most famous painter of the Baroque art in Italy!

His beautiful and fascinating paintings are mostly known for the incredible naturalism and for the dramatic use of lighting: thanks to bright shafts of light, noble and violent figures capture attention emerging from shadows. You’ll have the incredible chance to see this “tenebrism” from close in his great canvases, from the intriguing cycle on the theme of Saint Matthew the Evangelist to the raw violence of the Crucifixion of Saint Peter.

And Caravaggio’s life was as dramatic as his paintings: his irritable and violent character led him to get involved in street-brawls and caused him trouble with the law, culminating in a death sentence for murder.

Our knowledgeable guide will lead you through the alleys that were the scene of fights and brawls to the beautiful churches were Caravaggio’s breathtaking masterpieces continue to fascinate visitors after more than four centuries.
