This was my most unique, memorable experience in Rome. It was so different and the tour was essential to making sense of it and understanding meaning behind the monk's use of the bones of their own deceased to decorate the crypt.

Really interesting and nice to have a guide to explain it all in an interesting way rather than an audio guide. You can also go back through in case you missed something.
