About
Intended for Baroque art enthusiasts, this 3 hours tour will show you a number of interesting sights by following the footsteps of Caravaggio. You will relish in the dramatic contrast of light and dark, good and evil – both in Caravaggio's art and in his tormented life. Accompanied by your expert, entertaining guide you will discover all the places where the artist lived, worked and most of all, you will visit places where his masterpieces are housed in Rome: the Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo, the Basilica of St Augustine, and the Church of St. Louis of the French.

Footsteps of Caravaggio a tour well worth taking
We have used Eyes of Rome and in particular their fabulous guide Katie for the past 8 years whenever we visit Rome. This trip she recommended this “the footsteps of Caravaggio tour” with the add on of a visit to a restoration studio. This was the experience of a lifetime. First the visit to the three churches with their Caravaggio paintings plus the wander through the back streets of Rome to view the apartment he rented (still in use!) made for a pleasant day. Katie’s knowledge of Caravaggio and his works and influence are mind expanding and well worth the morning walk through central Rome. The highlight was the visit to the restoration studio. WARNING This is very expensive but to us it was worth every euro. This studio had restored a Caravaggio. Their explanations and demonstrations on the painstaking work it takes to accomplish such a remarkable feat was again a lesson you would never get anywhere else. The amazing thing we have found about Katie and Eyes of Rome is their ease of transferring knowledge about your tour without overwhelming you with information. A tour well worth taking

Feb 2019
Thank you, Eyes of Rome, for the incredible walking tour: In the Footsteps of Caravaggio.The conversations with our guide, Stefania Pistone, will be with us always, and were the highlight of our time in Rome. Stefania is a remarkable educator. On a sparkling morning in February, we met at the Piazza de Popolo, marveling at the light, and Stefania helped us understand how the Renaissance architects were architects of light, using their design sense to heighten the theatricality of the natural light in the place we were standing, centuries after it was designed, and still sparkling. From the Caravaggio paintings we learned about together in small, out of the way churches, to the Pantheon whose history came alive thanks to Stefania, we look forward to returning to Rome and to the chance to explore more with Eyes of Rome as our guides.

Ciao!!!! Many, many thanks for this review. My favorite experiences start when people ask for something special and unusual like you did. It has been a pleasure to walk around Rome with such curious people. And the weather also helped a lot. Although it was February, in fact, the temperature was nice and it was sunny. A perfect day to experience a walking tour in the footsteps of Caravaggio! Thanks again, Stefania

Wonderful tour!!!
Sep 2019 • Couples
Our tour guide Marida was absolutely wonderful! She was so knowledgeable, enthusiastic and an enjoyable host! She loves Rome and it shows. The churches and works of Caravaggio were magnificent and the insight into his life and where he lived and worked were very enlightening. We have booked a number of tours but if you are a fan of Caravaggio this is a must do!! If I could give it more stores I certainly would!!!!

Dear friend, Thank you for your lovely review, I am truly happy you enjoyed our time together, which I did as well! Following in the footsteps of Caravaggio is one of the greatest tours to experience in Rome, especially if you have already toured the classics, id est Vatican Museums and Colosseum. It offers the chance to explore beautiful churches out of the beaten paths where many of the painter's masterpieces are treasured. Check out our website for more thematic tours, such as those in footsteps of Bernini or Michelangelo: I'll love to tour with you again on your next trip to Rome! Looking forward to it! Marida
