Hi there, I'm Max! I was created in Ukraine and forged in Rome. After 15 years spent in the Eternal City, its infinite curiosities still surprise me, and I'd love to share them with you. I am a Linguistic and Cultural Studies specialist formed at La Sapienza University, and I have decided to pursue my childhood passion after college: history. This passion led me to door-to-door research and participation to numerous training courses in Roman history, Paleochristian history and History of Arts which all taught me countless tales and legends about Rome. The better I knew this city, the more I wanted to show to the others its hidden beauties and reveal its untold stories. "When you really want something, all the universe conspires in helping you to achieve it", a wise man once said, and that is exactly what happened to me. In 2018, I finally had the chance to start working as a tour guide, and since that moment, I've seized every occasion to share my passion, and show the real Rome.

About the Tour

Italy has changed. But Rome is Rome.

Rome is the city of echoes, the city of illusions, and the city of yearning.

Rome wasn’t built in a day, it was built to be Eternal. But who's responsible? Romulus, Cesar, the Pope? What's the secret behind the rise of the Eternal City? Where does its power lie?

Why so many churches and where’s the best pizza? How many fountains are there in Rome, and how many coins are tossed into the most beautiful of them? Why are the Egyptian obelisks everywhere, and who would have invented a basil-flavored gelato? 

The questions about Rome and its heroes are infinite. There’s an answer to each of them but the clock is ticking.

Rome will exist as long as the Coliseum does;

When the Coliseum falls, so will Rome;

When Rome falls, so will the world.

Therefore, before all that happens we will need to find out the answer to the most important question of this experience: Who killed Caravaggio? 

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

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

Meeting point: Open in Google Maps

How to find me: The meeting point is in Piazza della Minerva, by the elephant statue with the obelisk. I’ll have a sign with the name of the tour.

Wow, this was definitely one of the most fun things I’ve done in Rome! First of all, Max is an incredible storyteller (or as he would call it, narrator) and he tells you the history in a super interesting manner. Also, this tour has just a bit of everything, a murder mystery, history, art, amazing monuments and a cool story. I would totally recommend this tour, you will get to see some of the best monuments and hear about them while you’re immersed in a unique experience following one of Rome’s greatest artists and his adventurous and tumultuous life.

Response from Max
Thank you for taking time to write such a nice review, Omri. It was a pleasure to immerge you in the life and the creations of Caravaggio. Stay awesome!
