Full description

Enjoy a guided walking tour through the district of Rome where Caravaggio created some of his most noteworthy works. Visit three churches in the historic center, then travel by bus to Ladispoli, his last residence before he died from wounds sustained during a bloody duel.

Start your tour with the trio of churches, Santa Maria del Popolo, Sant'Agostino, and San Luigi de' Francesi. Explore the entrancing narrow alleys of Rome as you wend your way through the historic city center.

After the guided walking tour, make your way to the town of Ladispoli aboard a comfortable GT bus and experience the northern coast of Lazio. Get to know an internationally renowned destination of natural beauty located just 30 km from the capital.

Walk across the therapeutic black sands, where numerous Roman nobles spent their time. Explore the place where Maestro Caravaggio was arrested. See where he made a daring escape by sea after a bloody duel, taking refuge at the Odescalchi Castle in Palo Laziale.

Listen as your guide explains how Ladispoli today represents an important meeting point for artists and lovers of Caravaggio's art. Before your tour concludes, see the waterfront bronze statue of Caravaggio by the artist Sergio Bonafaccia.
