This is the strangest thing I have ever seen. Using the bones of human beings to create scenes seems irreverent and disrespectful, despite trying to foster a sense of holiness with the music and silence. Yes there is a museum with artifacts of the friars...More

This was part of a tour and to be honest we should not have gone on this leg. History is history, but some eras and actions of those past, as is the case in modern day, are questionable. The excitement in the delivery of our...More

I saw this 20 years ago and it was free. I don't mind paying now but (unlike the Vatican staff) the people working here make you feel like they are doing you a favor. The gift shop lady was outright hostile when I asked pricing...More

We planned on coming here before we arrived in Rome, so made sure we got around to see it and we were so glad we did! It doesn't seem to be very well known or a Tourist attraction so it was pretty quiet when we...More

I really expected an underground vault but it had windows looking out at ground level of the courtyard. All the walls were decorated with bones and there were some skeletons "standing " in one room. Kind of serene, kind of eerie

The history of this crypt is really fascinating, and it does look very cool. Unfortunately, sometimes the museum tends to overbook tours and the like, so it can feel very cramped.

Ludovisi / Via Veneto
Thanks to Fellini and La Dolce Vita, the Ludovisi and
Via Veneto neighborhood 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 neighborhood 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.
