About this activity
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Chiesa di Santa Maria del Popolo, Piazza del Popolo 12 Campo Marzio, 00187 Rome Italy

You will begin at Santa Maria del Popolo, from where you will be able to get a broader perspective of the Baroque period as well as familiarising yourself with some of the principle subjects that Caravaggio addressed. Indeed, this church houses two of Caravaggio's paintings, alongside the work of his stylistic rival Annibale Carracci.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Piazza del Popolo, 00187 Rome Italy

After crossing Piazza del Popolo, you will come to the neighbourhood where Caravaggio used to live and work, an area called Tridente. In this pretty little district you will learn in greater detail about this great artist's methods, his scholarshop and the controversies that accompanied him throughout his working life.

Duration: 15 minutes

Stop At: Church of St. Louis of the French, Piazza San Luigi de' Francesi, 00186 Rome Italy

Your journey through the life and work of Caravaggio will continue with a stop at San Luigi dei Francesi, the church of the French Congregation in Rome, and the place where you can see Caravaggio’s first public altarpiece, an awe-inspiring series on Saint Matthew. At this point, your guide will take the opportunity to highlight some of the aspects that made Caravaggio one of the most innovative painters ever.

Duration: 20 minutes

Stop At: Sant'Agostino Church, Piazza Sant'Agostino 19, 59100, Prato Italy

You will discover his emphasis of light-dark contrasts which owes much to his expert application of chiaroscuro, and before your journey's end you will have the chance to lay eyes on a relatively little-known Caravaggio in the Church of Sant’Agostino.

You will be given a comprehensive overview of Caravaggio's unique style as well as an introduction to a number of other artists who characterised the Baroque period in Rome.

Duration: 20 minutes
