This morning I completed my Google Maps Caravaggio Art Tour. Click here to check it out. If you click on the links for the paintings, it will take you to those Wikipedia entries. Let me know what you think of it. I’ll add a proper ‘route’ in the coming days. I’ve disabled some of the links to the Wikipedia entries because some of the entries link to similar paintings but not the exact one, and I don’t want visitors to be confused about Caravaggio’s works.
I was having trouble getting the map to save properly, but yesterday I fixed all the errors and updated the map with the proper addresses, phone numbers and web sites, where applicable. Remember, that some of these Caravaggio’s are housed in churches so remember that proper attire will be a must (no shorts, women should be covered up – no bare shoulders or short skirts). The majority of Caravaggio’s in Rome are located in the Galleria Borghese, so it might be best to start your ‘tour’ there and work your way around the city. To see a Caravaggio work in person is certainly a site. I would definitely suggest seeing Caravaggio’s work as it was meant to be seen in one of the three chapels – check the map for details!
Please feel free to leave comments about the map. If you have any suggestions for improving it, notice a mistake or have some questions, please let me know.
