Tour: Caravaggio just discovered, Rome, Lazio, Italy
Date: Jan 4, 2019

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.
