The Capuchin Crypt—monk-bone-laden chapels underneath the Church of Santa Maria della Concezione—is one of Rome’s most macabre attractions. It’s also, it turns out, a great place to see religious art. With this tour, skip the stuffy Vatican and head for a guided visit of the Capuchin museum and church, home to a Caravaggio painting, and then sit for a concert of Gregorian chants and polyphonic sacred music.
  • Listen to a concert of sacred music in the bone-laden Capuchin Crypt
  • Ideal for travelers who want to see a macabre side of Rome’s religious history
  • The tour is limited to 30 people, so you won’t get crowded out in the narrow crypt
  • See a Caravaggio painting in the church museum
