This was a fabulous tour. We had expected a perfunctory explanation of the work and the artist, but our guide, Jeanette, was a very knowledgable and interesting guide. The background information on Caravaggio's life was very useful in putting his work in context. If you truly want to come to know his work, and to get a very strong experience for this section of Rome, between Piazza del Popolo and Piazza Navona, this is a great way to do it.
Our very own private little tour as our group of four where the only attendees! Are tour guide was amazing, extremely educated and fun! We were learning so much while causally stolling the streets and popping into different churches here and there. Complete with incredible wine and really wonderful food made this adventure well rounded. Highly reccomended! Would not suggest bringing children on this tour.
There were 7 of us from USA age range 22 -56. Jeanette was an awesome guide that made the history come alive. We all loved the tour. I would recommend this tour to anyone who is interested in history, art and food. The restaurant we went to afterwards, Casa Coppelle, was the nicest restaurant we have been to in Rome. Thank you, Jeanette!!
This was a great tour and certainly worth the money! Jeanette, our guide, was well informed and entertaining and made the stories behind the art come alive. She wove history, sociology, psychology, and art together to give context to these amazing works. Our tour included three churches and six paintings by Caravaggio, as well as stops to look at some Bernini sculptures. Some days the tour includes two churches and the Spanish Steps instead. The two hours of viewing the art, combined with the wine tasting after, was just right. There is a bit of a walk involved, so wear comfortable shoes and clothing and keep in mind that you will need to cover shoulders in the churches. Highly recommended!
Jeanette was very good at inspiring non arty people and we loved the whole experience. Her knowledge and enthusiasm was infectious. We will never look at a painting in the same way again. The drinks and nibbles were a real treat at a fabulous restaurant.
Absolutely fantastic. Go!
Thoroughly enjoyable. Our guide Jeanette was extremely knowledgable and personable who kept the tour participants engaged and involved from start to finish and of course , the Caravaggios were amazing. We highly recommend this tour to art lovers (wine and food lovers too
The trip had only two participants. The guide really knew her Caravaggio, accepted differing opinions, and was very pleasant. The wine tasting was at a pleasant restaurant with two good wine and plenty of food for a lite dinner.
This tour was a great choice and thoroughly enjoyed!
Our American born tour guide, but long time resident of Rome, was an absolute delight to spend time with. Her passion and knowledge about Caravaggio as an Artist and why he painted what he painted was contagious. We spent time in two little churches looking at several of his works. She opened our eyes and minds to the idiosyncracies and yet brilliant story that each of these initially bizarre looking paintings told. Not to be phased by the larger than normal number on the tour nor the late afternoon Spring downpour that caught us half way between churches, Barbara soldiered on with fascinating tales of courtesans that frequented the area in bye- gone days as we huddled under umbrellas.The third stop was a really nice cafe where we sampled some excellent Italian wines starting with a Prosecco whilst getting to know each other and discussing aspects of our tour. Brilliant, dont miss it!
great tour the guide was very good and subjet matter was very interesting would highly recommend this tour
