NUMBER 8 -- CARAVAGGIO
Ok, I admit this is cheating because Rome is ripe with Caravaggios and they show up in half of our other choices on the top 10 list. But, I don't care. I warn you once you have the Caravaggio fever, you will walk into a room full of masters (other than Michelangelo) and walk past them all to see the Caravaggio and spend your entire time soaking it in. The light! His realism is over the top! See the Vatican Museum, S. Agostino, S. Maria del Popolo, Villa Borghese and S. Luigi dei Francese for the "best of the best."
