Interesting to learn the history of the Capuchin monks. The crypt was a bit of a disappointment in that it was in quite a cramped space and much smaller than I'd expected. No photographs are permitted inside, which is a pity - I'd have understood...More

Went with the family and they were amazed to see the arrangements of bones. Youngest was 8 and they could not stop talking about it and asking questions. Very cool. Only takes about 30 minutes if you skip the museum part. They gave the girls...More

My third visit. This is a small but fascinating attraction below the church, just off the top of the Barbarian Square. Five chambers are decorated with human remains, and 'guarded' by cowed skeletal monks. Most modern families and kids will love the ossuary, although they...More

The bones are somewhat off-putting. However, the Capuchins have a strong message to make, and they did so in a spectacular fashion.

Small off the beaten path site, very indescript from the out side. Inexpensive to get in, with a very cool museum of the life and time of these monks, and then you get to the crypts!! I can't even imagine how long this took to...More

Fascinating, but a little disappointing. I was expecting creepy, but it was more kitschy than creepy to me. I used my rudimentary Italian to suggest to the gift shop clerk that the most useful book to sell in the shop would be one on anatomy,...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.
