This was our second day with Monica. She took us to see the most recently discovered Caravaggio painting (60 years ago). We would not have known about it but for Monica. At Monica's request, the museum, located in Palestrina, opened - just for us - and closed when we left. What a treat to learn about how this painting was discovered, authenticated, and restored. Our two-days with Monica led to seeing 14 new (for us) Caravaggio works and gaining an understanding of the man and how he worked. Wonderful!

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Dear Linda, my treat was having you and John on my tours. Spending two days with you talking about "our" passion which is Caravaggio was a wonderful experience and a great way to start this new year. Thank you for your kind words and I hope to see you soon for new amazing experiences.

This was the first of two tours we did with Monica about Caravaggio. We asked Monica to show us the Carravagio's located in museums and palazzos and to see if she could get us an appointment to view the only ceiling Caravaggio painted that was in a private villa - the Casino Ludovisi. Monica came through big time. We had a great day and learned much we did not know about Caravaggio and other artists, and the 16th century popes. Monica is professional & passionate about her job. We had a wonderful day.

TOUR GUIDE RESPONSE: Thank you Linda for the amazing opportunity you gave me to show you the Caravaggio Masterpieces displayed in Roman Museums. It was a pleasure sharing with you my knowledge and more than everything my passion. Come back soon, we will keep learning and enjoying ourselves in the Eternal City.
