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.
The nearest metro stations are Spagna station and/or Repubblica station, Line A. We meet outside the convent, on the street level. The exact address is Via Veneto, 27.
