The stunning juxtaposition of light and dark, good and evil, in Caravaggio's paintings and his complicated life will captivate you on this unique tour. Caravaggio was a groundbreaking artist in the late 1600s and early 1700s. He was known for his dramatic and emotional use of chiaroscuro, or the contrast of light and dark. He was also a master at showing how a man felt on the inside, which made his paintings very real and powerful. Also, Caravaggio's realistic paintings were a big change from the idealized, stylized art that was popular at the time. This made him a leader in the Baroque movement.
With your private guide, you will explore all of the locations where the artist lived and worked, and most importantly, you will go to the areas in Rome that are home to the artist's masterpieces. These locations include the Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo, the Basilica of St. Augustine, and the Church of St. Louis of the French.
