You can do this visit by just going to the museum. It's very reasonable about 8 euros. You can get a headset if you want too but all the info boards in the museum are also in English. We found the history of the order...More

I saw this museum recommended on a traveller's blog about the 'hidden gems of Rome'. The first part of the museum is full of religious artefacts and relics owned by the Capuccini; a little dry as museums go but interesting all the same. The crypt...More

So glad we saw this recommendation in a magazine on the plane out otherwise we wouldn't have known about it. There are about 6 chambers/rooms all decorated with bones of the capuchin monks, it was slightly creepy but I enjoyed it none the less. Would...More

While in Rome that thought it would be great to check this place out. It really easy to get to (a few hundred feet from the Metro Stop) and reasonable cost (8 Euro if I recall). The Capuchins are an order of monks that have...More

This was a highlight for my teen! The museum itself was a tad on the boring side, but the crypt was well worth the venture. It is RIGHT by the Barberini Metro stop. There are about 6 rooms all decorated with the bones of 3700...More

This was a church I didn’t even know about, a friend suggested we see it. It was quite interesting to say the least. It kind of gave me an uneasy feeling seeing the bones of past priests being used as decorative displays. I understand the...More

Not as macabre as I thought it would be. Quite amazing that they have stacked the bodies of 3700 monks in such a small place and done in s very artistic way. I’m not sure if it’s respectful but definitely worth a visit as very...More

This is an odd museum - no doubt the museum part is good, and the church is charming. The best part is the crypt, which is truly macabre and bizarre, with the skeleton pieces of dead capuchins adorning each crypt space. Creepy!

Very informative, not busy at all. €8.50 for adults less for kids. Informative museum and then creepy crypts. Centrally located, highly recommended.

I read about this prior to leaving the US. It just sounded so different and intriguing that I insisted that we go and check it out. At first the teen was rather disturbed and didn't want to enter the crypt. With a little cajoling she...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

You don’t need to book in advance - no queues, this is a reasonably less well known museum. I cannot recall if there’s audio guide.

Hmm - gut feeling is no, after all Rome is probably one of the most religious places on earth! If you’re staying at a hotel, I’d ask the concierge to check for you.
