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.

You enter via a large potone having found this museum tucked away in a corner. Through the cloisters to the museum which is up a flight of stairs. Religious art, well worth visiting.

The artworks here are interesting and historic, but it was one of the few places in Prato with no guide information in English.

Numerous murals are displayed in varying degrees of restoration demonstrating the evolution of artistic style and intellectual process. The beauty of the many pieces on display are beyond belief and express ideas I have never seen depicted by 14th century artists before such as the Mary breastfeeding the infant Jesus - what a beautiful and humbling artwork. Entry cost per person but for very little extra you get access to the Museo dell'Opero Del Duomo plus another museum in Prato. Unfortunately we didn't have time to avail ourselves of this excellent offer. As the restoration of works is depicted this attraction should interest families travelling with teens.
