You pay 8 euro to walk through a museum that has paintings of the Franciscan friars as well as very old books. Museum highlights some of notable saints who were members of the order. There is 1 Caravaggio which I wasn't expecting. But you really...More

This turned out to be a real highlight of the trip. My husband loves church history and I love art, and these passions came together in this exhibit. I did find the decaying bodies very confronting - they are not all just bones!

The crypt is a fascinating find. We paid the extra €5 for the audio guide and definitely would not do that again as we did not feel it added much to the tour. This was a self guided tour with placards at all stops to...More

Mummyfied munks and skeletons made into decorations. Bit creepy, But not scary. Fascinating. Went with City Wonders on a tour to three sightings; this place, the crypts and the catacombs. Highly recommend doing this tour with guide.

Well. Our fifth visit to Rome and we thought why not give this a go...! It's a strange little place, guarantee you won't have seen something like this before. We whistled through the museum so we could get to the crypt which is small but...More

This is a cheap and visually stunning way to spend around an hour, but is also a little disturbing if you're squeamish. The first chapel includes the skeletons of children, which left us very uncomfortable, but I guess times change and this was accepted. Well...More

Nice museum to go through before the tomb, and then the amazing sites of the monks themselves, with some very creative ways of decorating using a skeleton, including lampshade and castle stick. The use of the pelvis and spinal columns was very original and of...More

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

Yes there's a little girl skeleton up on one of the ceilings in here. She has the scales and the scythe. Hope this helps

Hi We just walked by the church and the museum is to the right side of the church. Tickets were not a problem and the museum was very thorough before you get to the individual crypts. Have a great time!
