  • Fascinating display of human bones laid out in several chapels. These bones (of more than two thousand monks) are not haphazardly displayed, rather a great deal of thought, detail and creative...  more »

  • 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....
