Return Details

Pantheon, Piazza della Rotonda, 00186 Roma RM, Italy
Meet your guide near Piazza del Popolo to begin your walking tour focused around baroque painter Caravaggio. He spent much of his life in Rome in the late 1500s, and the city holds many of his works.

One of Rome’s liveliest squares, Piazza del Popolo is home to the Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo. Head inside this Augustine church, known for its Renaissance architecture and baroque artwork, to see two Caravaggio masterpieces inside the Cerasi Chapel—Crucifixion of St Peter and Conversion on the Way to Damascus. Then follow your guide through one of central Rome’s most elegant areas, walking along narrow streets like Via Condotti and Via Margutta, chic lanes that are home to boutiques and galleries. Stop by the Spanish Steps for a photo op, and walk through Piazza San Lorenzo before arriving at the Basilica of Sant'Agostino.

Head inside this hidden gem, a lesser-known church in a city filled with famous religious sites. You’ll admire work by Raphael in addition to Caravaggio’s Madonna del Loreto, housed in the Cavaletti Chapel. Learn from your guide about the reaction at the time to this painting, which depicts a barefoot Virgin Mary appearing to two pilgrims.

Finally, visit the Pantheon, one of the city's most striking pieces of architecture and home to the tombs of the first two kings of Italy. After exploring the interior, your tour will end in Piazza delle Coppelle.

Awesome Tour

Maria was terrific. She took us through several of the churches that house Caravaggio paintings. How amazing to see them in their chosen setting. Maria was extraordinary in reviewing not only Caravaggio’s paintings, but the ones nearby. It was a really fabulous tour.

This was wonderful. Valentina was so passionate about Caravaggio and we finished at the best restaurant for a delicious small bite to eat and Prosecco and wine. One of my favorites. The churches and Caravaggio came to life for us.

This was a fabulous tour. We had expected a perfunctory explanation of the work and the artist, but our guide, Jeanette, was a very knowledgable and interesting guide. The background information on Caravaggio's life was very useful in putting his work in context. If you truly want to come to know his work, and to get a very strong experience for this section of Rome, between Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona, this is a great way to do it.

Our very own private little tour as our group of four where the only attendees! Are tour guide was amazing, extremely educated and fun! We were learning so much while causally stolling the streets and popping into different churches here and there. Complete with incredible wine and really wonderful food made this adventure well rounded. Highly reccomended! Would not suggest bringing children on this tour.

There were 7 of us from USA age range 22 -56. Jeanette was an awesome guide that made the history come alive. We all loved the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in history, art and food. The restaurant we went to afterwards, Casa Coppelle, was the nicest restaurant we have been to in Rome. Thank you, Jeanette!!

This was a great tour and certainly worth the money! Jeanette, our guide, was well informed and entertaining and made the stories behind the art come alive. She wove history, sociology, psychology, and art together to give context to these amazing works. Our tour included three churches and six paintings by Caravaggio, as well as stops to look at some Bernini sculptures. Some days the tour includes two churches and the Spanish Steps instead. The two hours of viewing the art, combined with the wine tasting after, was just right. There is a bit of a walk involved, so wear comfortable shoes and clothing and keep in mind that you will need to cover shoulders in the churches. Highly recommended!
