My husband and I saw the crypt as an activity on a tour of the catacombs. We were not expecting this part of the tour. It was interesting, unexpected, and more than a little creepy. As a visitor caught by surprise, I still am glad...More
Hmmmm....my family had seen this 12 years ago so my wife insisted I go....they added a very nice Capuchin museum to start but then ended with the "bones". Different but not a highlight for me. May they all rest in peace.
One of the first things we did in Italy, we did a combined tour of this and one of the catacombs. This is one of the most intetesting works of art Ive seen. Pros. 1. Very unique. Ive seen bones used to decorate in the...More

If you are here in Rome for a week or more then this may fall into your list of sights to see. It looks (and is advertised) to be better than what it was in reality.
I felt this was overrated. It doesn’t cost much...More

We missed this on our first trip to Rome, so made it a priority this time. Very interesting. Only takes 30 minutes or so. Unless you are really interested in the life of a monk, skip the audio guide. The wall plaques are sufficient.
A must see while you are in Rome, especially during the hot summer months. A very interesting tour - it was actually very educational. Ladies - do not forget to wear modest clothing that covers your shoulders and knees! During part of the tour I...More
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
Villa Borghese, a beautiful park for sporting and cultural adventures. If you're looking for tranquility by night, this may be the place: Ludovisi and Veneto tend to shut down after 8pm.

Truly - I do not recommend taking children here. This is just my opinion. But the posed skeletons, many with dried skin still stuck to their bones, is very morbid and disturbing. Plus the crypt has a musty awful smell.
