Full description
Start your visit at the Capuchin Museums to learn about the place's culture and spirituality. Continue towards the Crypt of the Three Skeletons, the only area where the human skeleton can be seen in its unadorned entirety. Next, visit the Crypt of the Leg Bones and Thigh Bones. Admire the Crypt of the Pelvises, which contains 2 Capuchins serenely reclining in an arched position. Look at the crosses on the ground, which mark the graves of the 7 Capuchins. Stroll through the Crypt of the Skulls and check out its famous hourglass. Learn about how, when the Capuchins left their old friary near the Trevi Fountain, they decided to transfer the bones of friars who had been buried under the Church of Saint Bonaventure. In accordance with Capuchin law, which did not allow burials to take place within the churches, an underground cemetery was designed. Here, they deposited the bones brought from the old friary. Since then, the crypt has been the burial place of the Capuchins.

    Learning the history of the crypts was very interesting. Our tour guide was awesome. The tour is set a a good pace. You cannot y’all pictures inside - I was a little disappointing but competently comprehended why. If you also do the hop on and hop off tours the meeting place is at stop #8 at the Fountain. After the tour I hopped back on the bus and their 1st stop was near my hotel.

    I had a tour of the museums and Crypts of the capuchini today from Slob and he was fantastic! He gave us a excellent tour of this fascinating place, providing us with extensive knowledge not only of the artefacts within the museum but of the surrounding areas & the history of the religion itself. His excellent humour and knowledge mate for a fantastic trip. Thank you so much!

    We really enjoyed the tour (even though we had a problem arriving on time due to our bus breaking down as we were trying to get to the meeting spot!) We joined the tour midway through, but still got to see the bone crypt, which was what our son was most interested in anyway! :) The guide was very knowledgeable and provided excellent comparisons between the science and religion aspects! Enjoyed the tour immensely and highly recommend the company to any future customers considering the guided tour.
