This artwork is made up of the bones of deceased friars. There are about 5 rooms of countless bones arranged into strange arrangements. It's all very macabre and thought provoking. Admission is small but it doesn't take long to get through the whole museum. It's...More

My memory of this place has been with me for two years and I had to see it again. It was as mind blowing as I remember. It is not gross. It is art created from the bones and skulls of the Capuchin monks.

Amazing the differences in attitudes as to death throughout time and cultures. I kind of like the display and decoration idea a bit more than being tossed in the ground...The museum is ok, certainly informative. of course the big draw is the display of the...More

Just amazing the decorations made out of human bones. Gotta be out least a few thousand skeletons in total to make up some of the decorations in the rooms. Very interesting to see for sure.

We toured the museum & crypt on a drizzly Sunday. Learned a lot about the Capuchin order, and found the successive rooms of artfully-arranged bones fascinating. Well worth a visit!

I’ve got to be honest, after reading the reviews I didn’t know what to expect! Having very recently lost my precious cat and having lots of questions around life and death, I decided to visit the crypts. While the bones are unusual and display quite...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.
