We were surprised to find this little gem around the corner from out hotel. Stunning skeletal art and well worth a look with lots of interesting info about the Capuchins. Well worth a look in.

I can't understand all the good reviews, but everybody is different ... I think 8,50 euro is a lot of money to see bones and skulls, even with an artistic twist. Okay, the museum is nice but nobody's even paying attention and goes as quickly...More

The museum that is adjacent to the church is nice, they have a few pretty good pieces. The chapels with the skulls were a bit unsettling for me, but they were very interesting at the same time. I don't think I would visit this place...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

If you visit remember to cover shoulder and knees, they do provide a paper gown if y u forget, this was interesting but the bones in the rooms and mummies were quite creepy, I would not recommend for children.

This is a very special church for me. I understand that it homes the original painting of St. Michael the Archangel (the one you see reproduced everywhere) and they had a Capuchin of the Barberini family whose cousin or uncle or something was Pope Urban...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

cocktails, but the neighbourhood is now home to
