Nice museum to go through before the tomb, and then the amazing sites of the monks themselves, with some very creative ways of decorating using a skeleton, including lampshade and castle stick. The use of the pelvis and spinal columns was very original and of...More

We went after a friend recommended it. 8 euros a ticket and only takes about half a hour but it is interesting. Not for the faint hearted! My wife found the whole experience quite upsetting. I'm not sure I'd recommend it for children. Very nice...More

I went here without knowing what to expect as I was passing by. I was totally amazed and would recommend anyone to go here if they get the chance. The history behind the Capuchins was great to learn to put the Crypt into some context....More

My husband had seen photos of this place prior to our trip and so we made sure to stop here. It is very small compared to the other places you might visit, however, it is absolutely one of the most unique things I saw in...More

Small and quick, but sight of all those bones will stay with you long after. It's both fascinating and a bit horrifying. After a couple days of ruins and museums, my twelve year old soon enjoyed it. I wish that we could have taken pictures...More

Inexpensive stop, a place to stop by out of the heat, and very interesting. A stop like no other around the world. This was our first time to Rome and a wonderful stop recommended by our tour guide. "Francesco". Again, this was our first time...More

This is a crypt full of bones and skulls and all things skeletal. It does not take long to visit the 5 separate rooms - 30 minutes tops - but it makes a change from the other wonderful sights of Rome and is certainly something...More

The kids were a little bit reserved but took it ok. There were children skeletons and mummified faces. But it was a good setup. The rooms in the introductory museum gave a nice background and once surrounded by bones and skeletons you could go as...More

We heard about this from our local host. First there was a small museum on the monastery and monks which was well executed but the main thing here are the crypts. All together 3700 monks' bones (if I remember correctly) are laid into delicate and...More

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighborhood earned its reputation as a
posh area where gorgeous Marcellos wooed actresses and
models while bored housewives hung out in streetside
cafes. The cafes are still there, and so are the
cocktails, but the neighborhood is now home to
five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law

Yes there's a little girl skeleton up on one of the ceilings in here. She has the scales and the scythe. Hope this helps

Hi We just walked by the church and the museum is to the right side of the church. Tickets were not a problem and the museum was very thorough before you get to the individual crypts. Have a great time!
