Santa Maria del Popolo: Just past the large main gate that leads to Piazza del Popolo, on the left side is the Basilica of Santa Maria del Popolo where you can admire, totally free, two spectacular works by Caravaggio: “The Crucifixion of Saint Peter” and “The Conversion of Saint Paul,” both of which are striking works of an extraordinary expressive force. Among the most admirable features is the manner in which Caravaggio so magnificently and realistically managed to depict the humanity of the characters.
