Tour description

⚠️⚠️⚠️ Explicit content ⚠️⚠️⚠️

A tour of the most iconic sites, and hidden gems of Rome.

Monumental piazzas, baroque marvels, and priceless paintings will reveal their deepest darkest secrets...

But in all this enchantment we shouldn’t forget the main thing: we have a murder to solve!

This is a story of life and death, of one of the greatest painters who’d ever lived- Michelangelo Merisi aka Caravaggio.

Why he’s remembered as the Bad Boy of Baroque, and what makes him so special? Why so much drama in his life, and his paintings? Who were his friends, lovers, and enemies? But above all, we’ll try to find out who killed him.

It’s when the exploration of a city turns into an investigation of a 400-year-old murder case.

You can’t be too sexy to enter the churches therefore shoulders and knees must be covered.

The itinerary:

  • Piazza della Minerva
  • Pantheon
  • San Luigi dei Francesi
  • Sant’Agostino
  • Piazza del Popolo
  • Santa Maria del Popolo

- Large group reservations (more than 6 people) are NOT allowed and will be rejected. Groups of more than 6 people have to book a private tour.

An interesting and informative tour, this was a pleasant way to pass the afternoon while learning a little about art and Roman history. I would absolutely take another tour with this group if we had more time.
