If you visit remember to cover shoulder and knees, they do provide a paper gown if y u forget, this was interesting but the bones in the rooms and mummies were quite creepy, I would not recommend for children.

This is a very special church for me. I understand that it homes the original painting of St. Michael the Archangel (the one you see reproduced everywhere) and they had a Capuchin of the Barberini family whose cousin or uncle or something was Pope Urban...More

Our daughter 11, likes ghosts etc. We took our 11,13 year old to this monestary to really see something that really is hard to describe. Creepy doesn't cover it... So worth the time!

Very unusual church and extraodinary installations of bones, the musuem is very informative and interesting, all in all it is one of most breathtaking things in Rome!

The crypt of the Cappuchins is an chilling to say at least. There are 6 rooms 'decorated' with human bones from 3700 skeletons. If you are in Rome, then you must see this place.

Not very large church of the Order of Capuchin. Nearby are the crypt and museum Capuchin. Not worth a special visit.

After visiting other crypts with mummified monks (Czech Republic), I was a bit disappointed that there were only a few rooms to see the display for the price (I think it was 10E). It seemed as if some of the bones had been moved and...More

This forms part of Dark Rome. If your into the macabre then this is for you. No photos allowed. Worth a trip if your in the area or stuck for something to visit.

I only wish picture taking was allowed. It's hard to describe the shear volume of human bones used to create altars, archways, and ceiling decorations. Very bizarre and macabre, but worth seeing.

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

Yes this is the one with the little girl! She's on the ceiling holding a scythe and weighing scales made of bones. She's also known as the princess
