It's only small, but so much cooler than the Paris catacombs. The amount of artistry in how the bones were put together, the posing of the full skeletons and mummies, just the whole thing was awesome. There's a small museum before the crypts, which would...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

Located next to the Museum and Crypt of the Cappuchin monks, the church is worth visiting when passing by. May not be a major attraction if you're in Rome only for 2-3 days, but if you have time or around Via Veneto, stop by! Opens...More

Our daughter 11, likes ghosts etc. We took our 11,13 year old to this monestary to really see something that really is hard to describe. Creepy doesn't cover it... So worth the time!

The crypt of the Cappuchins is an chilling to say at least. There are 6 rooms 'decorated' with human bones from 3700 skeletons. If you are in Rome, then you must see this place.

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
