Caravaggio's Saint Matthew painting, in the church of San Luigi dei Francesi
From September 9th through 13th, take 10% off some of our favorite art tours in Rome, with code CARAVAGGIO at checkout.

Though the Vatican gets all the press, many of Rome's most beautiful pieces of art are found outside the realm of St. Peter's. Masterworks like Caravaggio's Saint Matthew and ancient depictions of Romulus and Remus are serenely off the path of many tourists in spots like the Capitoline Museums and the Church of San Luigi dei Francesi, waiting to be discovered by travelers and locals in the know. 

September 29 is Caravaggio's birthday and, in his honor, our offer is valid on the following tours: Caravaggio: Portrait of an Artist; Borghese Gallery; Borghese Gallery for Families; Rome Literary Tour; Popes, Power, and Parties (The Renaissance in Rome); Capitoline Museums; Capitoline Museums for Families; Myths for Families; Bernini & Borromini.

(These nine tours are truly some of our staff favorites, but don't just take our word for it—)

"Simonetta was amazing!! Her excitement, seemingly endless knowledge, interesting facts and stories, and absolutely overflowing and obvious love for what she does made this tour my favorite i have ever had. I have lived in rome for two summers and have visited the borghese gallery upwards of 6 times, every time with either a personal guide or one of the borghese's and she is FAR AND AWAY the best I have ever had. This is my favorite museum and obviously one I have visited often, so if anyone's review should be taken seriously it's mine: far and away the best tour of this trip and possibly the best tour I've ever had." - Jennifer W. on our Borghese Gallery tour

"Amazing tour. Felt like learning from a friend, almost didn't feel like a tour at all, except that I learned a lot. Highlight of our trip to Rome, and best tour we took by far." - Olivia G. on our Caravaggio in Rome tour

"Really enjoyed this tour of small, stunning architectural works by both Borromini and Bernini that are wrongfully overlooked by tourists. Because they are so beautiful and are not overwhelmed with people, visiting these places was a real pleasure, and Francesca was a perfect guide. I would recommend this half-day tour to anyone who wants to get away from the crowds and see more of Rome's religious architecture beyond St. Peter's." - William T. on our Bernini & Borromini tour
