We researched how to get there before we set off and so glad we did.
From Piazza Dante take the metro line to Materdei from where u can catch a bus (C51 or C53) Ask for Via Delle Fontanelle and from where we were dropped off it was about a 200m walk up and on the left.
We opted to walk back to Materdei which with the aid of google map only took 10 mins.
This is a free attraction which is always a bonus however we would have happily made a donation to its upkeep if they had a donation box.
We were welcomed in and given a guide leaflet to read explaining its history.
It was a surprisingly large place filled obviously with bones with some skulls having been adopted e.g skulls in display cabinets, adorned with jewellery and one skull having a little bow placed on top giving it a child like look.
Unlike walking around a graveyard where you glimpse info on the person here they are nameless, ageless, their history unknown which is sad but I suppose this adds to its interest.
