  • After two previous stays in Rome where I wanted to visit this very particular ossuary--knowing I couldn't figure, finally arriving at the box office and purchase my entry! The price is really high considering that alas the tour ends in about thirty minutes. The Museum then is nice and quite interesting but the painting by Caravaggio which should represent the highlight is penalized terribly by the location in a small environment and enlightened violently by powerful spotlights whose light makes a bad reflection on the canvas a little spoiling the experience of the observer. The ossuary then Yes is disturbing and fascinating in its kind, but-terrible disappointment (reported to date from the ticket office to tell the truth)-being a sacred place is forbidden to photograph anything! Do not flash or constraints are placed: Trestles or otherwise, is prohibited. On the other hand "there's the bookshop at the end", as I heard him respond to another aspiring photographer ... The chapels, variously decorated with human bones, visiting also along a narrow hallway and altogether charming, but which is inevitably driven forward by other visitors that follow. At this point the service staff would do much better to take the ossuary to a small number of people at a time giving these a few minutes at least to observe calmly ... view the sacredness of the place ... Consolandomi I conclude with the thought that my help ticket good works Capuchin monkey in the world. The player draws his conclusions from my experience ...

  • Visiting this cemetery is truly unique. In the Centre of Rome, on via Veneto, on the right coming from piazza Barberini, climb the stairs of the Church of Santa Maria della Concezione (via Veneto, 27) and enter sideways to the right, where does the ticket (expensive, indeed). Then you go into a museum area, where there are also valuable paintings (eg. Caravaggio) and numerous historical artifacts related to the Capuchins. After the last room, you enter the area of the cemetery, which has nothing to do with what you can imagine. In fact we are faced with 5-6 small rooms that are fully "furnished" by hundreds and hundreds of real bones, all forming part of skeletons belonging to the friars. There is one thing that isn't built with the bones, even the chandeliers on the ceiling. Each cell is a true masterpiece, though it may give the impression of macabre. To see absolutely

  • Small and quick, but sight of all those bones will stay with you long after. It's both fascinating and a bit horrifying. After a couple days of ruins and museums, my twelve year old soon enjoyed it. I...  more »
