These crypts and definitely worth a visit. It doesn't take long but it is incredible and not something you would forget. The corridor has several different rooms which are all decorated with different human bones and create scenes. It is eery and fun. Including the...More

Just wanted to do something a little different. It was interesting to read about this group of monks and the story behind all the bones. Just a quick stop but we thought it was worth the time and money. If you have time and want...More

This is probably a perfect example of how to rip tourists of their money. A terrible place. A lot of bones put up in strange formations. And then directly into the souvenir shop. Gross and macabre. Don't go :-(

This is someplace I always wanted to see. But I have to say I wish I hadn't. There was a fabulous Caravaggio painting in the display you must pass through on your way to the crypt. It was the highlight of the tour. Also we...More

This crypt is wildly bizarre. 6 chambers of bones and skulls artistically arranged beneath and old church. May not be everyone's cup of tea, but it is a very unique site.

My only explanation for some of the negative reviews are they went on their own and just walked through. This was part of our tour. Each of the 6 rooms were explained in detail that way you know what you're looking at. It's very interesting...More

This crypt is a work of art. The reverence and respect for their family and for both life and death are apparent in every corner. The artwork in the museum is worth the look in itself. I also think it depends on whether you are...More

I was looking forward to seeing this crypt. €8.50 to get in didn't seem too bad - but I was in and out in 10 minutes.

Been here a couple of times. First was a quick trip to the crypt, which was a real experience! It's now a proper museum - and so a bit of a struggle as the history of the cappuchin mons is a bit niche! It's lost...More

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighbourhood 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 neighbourhood is now home to
five-star businesses including hotels, banks, law
firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to

I'm sorry I really don't know. I don't remember when we checked in and paid if it said there was a discount for disabled people.
