NOEL KING, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Noel King.

It's known as one of the wonders of the world by one of the greatest painters in history - a ceiling mural in a villa in Rome by the artist Caravaggio. The villa has been put up for auction. And it can be yours for a starting bid of $547 million. As for maintenance fees, yes, absolutely - the buyer will also have to spend 13 million bucks in restoration expenses.
