Capuchin Crypt Tickets and a Guided Tour

Uncover one of the most mysterious and fascinating places of Rome on this 60-minute guided tour. This is a great alternative for an audio-guided tour, and the price is the same as you would pay for the ticket plus an audio guide, but there is a human touch. Capuchin Crypt is something that you have to do in Rome, and this option allows you to do it quickly and with a professional guide.

What is The Capuchin Crypt

Capuchin Crypt is often referred to as the Bone Chapel. It’s a series of 6 chapels, 5 of which are fully decorated with human bones, remains of the Capuchin friars, but not only. Over 3700 skeletons were used by the Capuchin monks to decorate this bizarre place. The Crypt was visited by travelers, and writers like Mark Twain, Marquis De Sade, and Charles Dickens, and vividly described in their travel notes and memoirs. Macabre yet holy, dark yet peaceful.

What you can expect on the Tour of Capuchin Crypt

Your guide will be waiting for you at the entrance to the Capuchin convent. It’s located just off the Barberini Piazza, on Via Veneto 27. After a short briefing, you will begin your guided tour. The tour includes the museum as well as the Capuchin Crypt (Bone Chapels). There are no hidden fees or charges, everything is included in the price of the tour. Your ticket will be valid for the whole day, so you can stay inside after the tour is finished to explore it again on your own. Your group will not be larger than 15 people, and for the full groups, you will have a headset to hear your guide clearly. There is a very strict dress code (knees and shoulders must not show), and no photography is allowed inside the Crypt. However, there is a gift shop where you can purchase photographs, postcards, and souvenirs. And if you have nothing to cover your knees with, you can purchase a disposable kimono at the box office. The duration of the guided tour is approximately 60 minutes. The tour is conducted in one language only English.

Woah, I don’t even know where to begin. What a strange place. If I were to go there on my own, I would be just looking at thousands of bones, but with the guide, it was just amazing to learn about the monks, about Rome and Italy, the lifestyle of different religious orders, Saint Francis of Assisi, and so much more.
Awesome experience.

My partner and I had Dimitri show us around the Capuchin Museum and Crypt. We really didnt have much of an idea of what to expect but we ended up having a really great time! Dimitri had so much information and passion to share for the Capuchin order and was really amazing at adding context to everything we were seeing. I cannot recommend the tour and Dimitri enough. Thank you!

My kids loved it. The length is just right-the kids didn’t get bored 🙂

Amazing place!
If you have limited time, but want to see something really unique this express tour is for you. Our teenage boys loved it, and most importantly we didn’t have to go on a 4-hour tour to see it. We were here for a weekend, and this tour worked out very well for us.

Excellent tour. In these 60 minutes we have seen the museum and the crypts, our guide was just a wealth of knowledge, and we have learned a lot not only about the capuchin monks, but about Rome and Italy.
The crypt is located just a few minutes away from Trevi and the Spanish steps. There’s a taxi stop only a half of block away, and buses going to Borghese, Termini, Colosseum and the Vatican.
Great experience, very well organized and conducted.
