  • This crypt is one of the few places in the world where you will see human remains transformed into beautiful art. It is unique and definitely worth visiting. 10 years ago you could just walk in, see the crypt, and give whatever donation you felt appropriate. Few people knew about it, so it was not crowded. Now they have transformed the site into a much better publicized museum that you have to walk through to get to the crypt. They charge an admission price that is a bit steep (8.5 euros) for what it is, and the halls are packed with tour groups. Still, definitely worth a visit.
  • If you are lucky enough to visit Rome, my 3 top places to visit are, The Colosseum, The Forum, and this place.... you'll probably never see anything like this again. Really creepy, but mesmerising at the same time! ADVICE WARNING: possibly not for the squeamish, and remember..... this is a highly religious place, and you MUST be wearing appropriate clothing....
  • Edit June 2019 (originally posted Jan 2019) People complaining about the 8,5EUR price tag probably walked through the crypt without stopping to explore the details. A more-than-affordable stop, IMO. A very cool and interesting stop in your Rome trip. It's not for everyone, but it's definitely a unique destination that offers some history and information about the Capuchins before taking you into the crypts. The crypts aren't large, but they're morbidly beautiful and mesmerizing to look at- so much detail and time was put into them with lots to I-Spy throughout. Highly recommend stopping here.
  • I visited 20 yrs ago and was very excited to bring my daughter this time. So unique. And creepy. And in the past twenty years they opened up a museum about the people, which was very cool to add that layer to our visit.
  • This used to be one of the most impressive sights in Rome for me, but in the past few years they have become expensive. The staff is unfriendly and noisy as well, when walking through the catacombs you can hear them babbling away at the gift shop which is disturbing. I found this pretty weird if you imagine they force you to cover your shoulders out of respect. So after my last visit I feel a bit mixed!
