If you are a Caravaggio fan, this tour is perfect for you as you will see five unbelievable Caravaggio paintings You will also stand beneath a ceiling that is an optical illusion, and see the mouth that is really a door, or is it the other way around?
Photographs are included on the map-routes to help you recognise where you are as you move from one location to the next. No Internet or GPS connections are required to use the app.
The tour is designed to be walked in one day, but may take longer depending on the amount of time you spend at each location. The total walking distance is approximately 3.5 km, so wear comfortable shoes and carry a small set of binoculars so you can see fine details in the buildings and artwork.
