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
  • San Luigi dei Francesi
  • Piazza Navona
  • Sant’Agostino
  • Caravaggio's House
  • Palazzo Borghese

- Large group reservations of more than 6 people, even under a different name, are NOT allowed and will be rejected. Groups of more than 6 people have to book a private tour.

I wish I could learn about the other Italian artists like Leonardo Da Vinci, Michelangelo, etc in the same way i learned about Caravaggio. It was an amazing tour that satisfies every tourist.

This tour was a total gem! Aside from Max’s witty sense of humour we visited some amazing paintings. Our guide was an expert story teller with vast amounts of knowledge who took us through a journey of the painter’s life in an insightful, funny and humane approach . Highly enjoyable tour!
