The Caravaggio exhibition in Rome is being a huge success. As if trying to make up for the decades of oblivion, Italy and  tourists from all around the world are flocking to the Scuderie del Quirinale Museum to admire the works of the Lombard painter who for some critics is “the first modern painter”.

Caravaggio - Bacchino malato

The reason for all this excitement is the 400th anniversary  of the death of the painter who lived in Rome and spent his last years as an outlaw after killing a man in a fight. Many paintings have been gathered from museums all over Europe sepcially for this exhibition, so it’s not very likely you’ll have the cance to see them all together again in your lifetime! There is no better occasion to get acquainted with the ouvre of one of the most famous and mysterious Italian painters

The line for the exhibition can be quite long, so our advice is to book beforehand, which can be done on line. You will pay a bit more for the pre-sale rights, but it will be worth saving the waiting time.

And don’t forget it: for accomodation in Rome Lucci Hotel and Hotel Des Artistes are your best options!
