First, because reviews are supposed to help future visitors, I must mention that "Our Lady of the Conception of the Capuchins" is foremost a church. As such, modesty is required.. for some reason we did not have the forethought to realize this. We knew, going...More

I attend Mass here while in Rome on holiday. I shall NEVER forget it. It was Trinity Sunday so Mass was special indeed. I loved the quiet prayerful feeling here. St Peter's Basilica was awesome but this quiet little church was full of the peace...More

Not cheap to enter the museum but take your time to read the different stuff which is showed. It is an interesting story. After the museum you will see the "art" they did with the bones of their dead 'brothers". It is scary and interesting.

Pictures of this place don’t do it justice! Start with the church upstairs. It’s beautiful and a great way to set the mood. Then go through the gallery and enjoy all the art and artifacts. Then be blown away by the crypt. Wonderful experience. Clean,...More

Monks created art from displaying bones in different forms. They really have studied how each bone can contribute to their art. Maybe expensive but I really enjoyed this

Of all of the museums we have visited in Rome, this was by far the most expensive for the size. However, it was interesting to see. The history of the monks was interesting, and the crypts were fascinating! Whoever created the altars must have gone...More

We’ve seen the Paris catacombs as well as Sedlec Ossuary outside Prague, but this rates as the strangest and most fascinating site. The monks certainly had a way with decorating- including a crypt of pelvic bones, features with jaw bones and bone chandeliers. The museum...More

Well, 6 cryps filled with skeletons and bones arranged into life lessons. That was an experience. Some get the point, some think it's distasteful. Like I said, Marmite. Truth told it was fairly interesting in how it's all conveyed to you if maybe a little...More

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
