This tour included a capella voice performance. The event began at 530 and we were out of the church by 6:50. The music was lovely. The crypt and museum were unusual and worth a visit. But the tour was rushed. If I could find a way to rate the entire tour experience I would say it was a 3 star... More

Strange Place- using bones and turning their monk brothers into art work. I still consider this the most unique thing that we saw in Rome and I have already recommended to numerous people. Probably a little scary for little kids- but I found it to be fascinating. We saw it as part of a tour which included catacombs and St.... More

Very impressive museum, never seen anything like that. But spoiled by guy at ticket sales. He was more interested about his telephone than paying customers and threw ticket and money to 5 of us like bone to a dog.

It seems a little pricey, about 8 Euro each but there's a decent sized museum, which has lots of great things to looks at, reliquaries & paintings etc. Then you get to the crypt which is both beautiful and eerie. The designs of each crypt are do unlike anything we've seen, and we e visited a few crypts. So glad... More

Located a stones' throw from the Triton fountain (Barberini Metro) this museum and crypt of the Capucin (Franciscan) friars is located in the church of Santa Maria della Concerzione on Via Veneto. The museum is well curated and has some fascinating items - the information on the exhibits and history of the Capucins (in English and Italian) is very well... More

Visited the Crypt in Rome (also went to one in Czech Republic), eerie use of human bones to make mosaics. Great for kids who aren't easily upset and who love scary things. Great for adults too. Many rooms with skulls and bones arranged in artistic way. Whole museum takes under an hour but a great break, particularly for kids, from... More

This place is very creepy - literally 3500 dead monks' bones up on the wall in artistic displays of religious imagery. Do yourself a favour and get a tour guide - my mum and I booked a Crypts and Catacombs tour through City Wonders - had an INCREDIBLE tour guide called Amanda who was knowledgable and engaging. Tip 1: Can... More

We did not have time to visit the catacombs of Rome or Paris, so we decided this would be a good replacement. It was amazing yet really creepy. I felt it would be too inappropriate to take pics here. There are just so many actual skeletons. They were also much smaller than I had expected. A must see and doesn't... More

I wasn't sure what to expect when I heard about the crypt but I am glad I went. It was eerie but what the Capuchin monks did with the bones of past Friars was very creative. Once again you are not able to take photos whilst in the crypt but it will be something you will never forget.

Staying in Ludovisi / Via Veneto

Neighborhood Profile
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 firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 8pm.
