The Crypt of the Capuchins was recommended to us by friends and family, and we weren't disappointed. For 6 euros you get entrance to a small but highly informative museum containing information about the Capuchin friars, and a chance to look at the relics and items from the history of the order. Then once you've walked through the museum you enter the crypt, decorated with the bones of long dead friars. Some of the skulls still appear to have old skin attached to them, and maybe I've watched too many horror films, but I wouldn't like to be in there in the still of the night...
Photography is not allowed within the crypt, and you should dress as if entering a church (no bare shoulders etc).
As has been stated previously, the crypt itself is quite sobering, a reminder that this awaits us all (not having our remains used as decoration, naturally, but death and decay). A fascinating interlude on our Roman trip. I would highly recommend this.
