... makeover so we couldn't gaze in wonder at it, I did take a happy snap of all the scaffolding though. Our feet carried us onwards to 'Museo Frati Cappuccini e Cripta Ossario' or once again more simply the dead monk church. This place is crazy. Over 3700 dead monks from the order have been bought to the crypt under the church and made into art.

Ater a short lunch break, we were off to see the Colosseum, another massive structure with some interesting history behind it.
