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

We were surprised to find this little gem around the corner from out hotel. Stunning skeletal art and well worth a look with lots of interesting info about the Capuchins. Well worth a look in.

I can't understand all the good reviews, but everybody is different ... I think 8,50 euro is a lot of money to see bones and skulls, even with an artistic twist. Okay, the museum is nice but nobody's even paying attention and goes as quickly...More

The museum that is adjacent to the church is nice, they have a few pretty good pieces. The chapels with the skulls were a bit unsettling for me, but they were very interesting at the same time. I don't think I would visit this place...More

When contemplating what to do with the remains of some two and a half thousand Capuchin monks, some people would have buried them. But here at the Santa Maria we find that some twisted nutter decided to use those bones as an art project. When...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
firms, and embassies. The area is also right next to
