This was one of the best tours we have ever done...and 100% of the credit goes to our guide, Paolo. He took the time to understand what we wanted to learn, Based on this understanding he did a superb job in guiding us through not just the impact and backstory of Caravaggio's works in the churches we visited, but also the personality and lived context of the artist himself so that we ended out time with a much deeper appreciation for how meaningful his work is. Thank you Paolo & Context!
Our guide was fantastic. Very knowledgeable took us to places off the beaten track but important to the Life picture of Caravaggio.
Paolo was a wealth of fascinating information. As a huge fan of Carravagio paintings, Paolo made them come alive. Absolutely brilliant!
