Caravaggio's Art and Life Private Guided Tour with Hotel Pick-up by Marco

Enjoy a private guided walking tour among Caravaggio's works of art and the places where he lived and worked in Rome. Your highly-qualified guide and local art historian will provide you with a comprehensive overview of the artist's unique style. You will also see some of Rome's most fascinating locations and discover other great artists who characterised the Baroque period in Rome. <br><br>You will learn about the artist's innovations and altercations, and how Michelangelo Merisi (his real name) left an indelible mark on the history of art thanks to the breathtaking quality of his trailblazing painting. <br><br>You will go to some of the places that still host the art that was created for them, such as Santa Maria del Popolo, San Luigi dei Francesi and Sant’Agostino, three important churches in the heart of Rome's old town. As you walk, you will come across the same streets that Caravaggio used to frequent in the 1600s, and they haven't changed much since when.

This is one of the best diocesan museums in Italy. Extremely well laid out, showcasing some outstanding works of religious art. The staff are extremely polite and helpful. Visitors to the duomo must purchase a ticket for the museum in order to walk behind the high altar. This is perfectly reasonable, though it is not terribly clear that this is the practice at the duomo and museum. A poster or sign in translation explaining that would be helpful. On the other hand, my wife and I were very impressed by the lady who directed us from the duomo to the museum. Her enthusiasm for the duomo, and especially for Our Lady’s girdle which is displayed in the museum, were infectious.

Wonderful little museum, full of the most amazing religious artefacts, of which by far the best are the decorative carved stone panels from the next door Duomo’s external pulpit, created by Donatello in the 15th century. These were replaced on the pulpit by 20th century copies and put in the museum to prevent any further damage by pollution. To be able to get up so close to these exquisite carvings is a fine arts lover’s dream. If you are in the Emilia Romagna region, you should come to Prato just to these. They are extraordinary.

Being the only people in this museum we were assigned a “watcher” who spoke only Italian and kept wanting to steer us to art that was not of interest to us ie. 17th century. But the early art in the museum is wonderful! There are frescoes under the arches, a nice one of St. Anthony and his devil-pig in a window alcove, a Filippo Lippi, a slyly grinning Madonna and Child with a bird, a lovely Annunciation, and the original Donatello outdoor pulpit. I suggest a stop here.
