“A gem of a Caravaggio for the right price: free”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

The Church of San Luigi die Francesi is a wonderful attraction: free, not over-crowded, cool in the summer and over-the-top ornate. Plus, it has three fine Caravaggio paintings depicting the master's darkness and use of light perspective. I am not a church fan, much less an endless amount of churches in Rome fan, but this one is worth the trip.

If you interested in art history, than this church is one that cannot be missed. The Caravaggio's are truly amazing. Don't miss them.

“Carvaggio in context”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

Nice to see Carvaggio paintings in the place it was intended and not a museum. You have to put coins in a machine to keep the lights on-quaint
