Caravaggio’s Genius

Following the footsteps paintings of Caravaggio to the Santa Maria del Popolo Curch, Sant’Agostino Curch and San Luigi dei Francesi Curch.

Michelangelo Merisi better known as Caravaggio was from the northern of Italy but it was in Rome that his genius exploded and revolutionized world painting. He lived here for few years between the late 1500s and the early 1600s. We can suppose those were the happiest years of his short and hard life. His paintings caused astonishment for their strong innovation and so much appreciation on one hand but sharp criticisms and animosity on the other! This itinerary takes you through the center of Rome to visit three different and wonderful churches where is possible to see Caravaggio’s masterpieces in their original place. You will admire his painting in a special way with its unbelievable state-of-the-art light and its incredible three-dimensional effects. The beauty of the details so lovingly cared by the artist cannot be given by any reproduction. While watching them do not forget that Caravaggio used to paint very quickly. It seems impossible, isn’t it?

Meeting Point Option 1

We requested 3 tours for our family of 7.  We specifically wanted something that was intimate and designed for just us- to have a personal experience where we would be submerged in the Roman culture and history, while at the same time having an open dialogue with the tour person.  All our tours were amazing and the experience was top notch.  I feel that we learned so much more having these personal tours than we would have using a large group tour company.  One member of our family had some limited physical abilities and both tour guides were very accommodating.  The experience will never be forgotten! Emanuele was extremely easy to work with on our bookings.  He was very responsive, professional and just downright a joy to work with all around!  RomeByLocals exceeded all expectations!

We had 2 days of touring with RomeByLocals in May.  It was outstanding in every way.  Easy access to the sites and the tour guide was knowledgable and fun.  I would highly recommend them for any excursion!
