Italy has produced a wide range of great artistic talents over the years, with the likes of Leonardo da Vinci and Michelangelo all hailing from this great country. But one of the most beloved and interesting painters Italy has produced has to be the one and only Caravaggio.
Famed for his realistic yet dark, horrific and often gory depictions of biblical/mythical scenes, this Old Master travelled extensively across Italy, often not by choice, but due to being exiled from Rome, and seeking refuge in alternative locations.
As a result his masterpieces can be found in cities all over the country and catching a glimpse of one is a must-do for any art lover during their holiday in bella Italia. For this reason, we’ve put together a comprehensive (but by no means definitive) guide to where you can see some of Caravaggio’s most famous paintings in Italy.
