When you’re ready to move on, make your way back over River Tiber to the Cappuccini Convent. I’d probably recommend a taxi for this because it’s too far to walk and the metro doesn’t run here at all. The Capuchin monks built a convent made entirely from human remains, which is actually quite gruesome, so maybe it's not good for the squeamish among you. If you do decide to brave it, walk through the crypt where you will see hundreds of skulls looking at you from every direction, along with entire skeletons that have been arranged in very artistic ways. This museum is so, so unique and I bet you’ve never seen anything like it - it’s worth the ten Euro entry fee and is certainly one of the unusual things to do in Rome.
