Five Places to See Dead People

No, really. Here are five (weirdly awesome) places where you can see dead people. Best read aloud in your spookiest vampire voice.

1. STEPHANSDOM AND GRABEN (VIENNA, AUSTRIA):

A great view upstairs, a catacomb of plague skeletons downstairs.

2. BASILICA DI SANTA CROCE (FLORENCE, ITALY):

Italy’s best and brightest—Dante, Michelangelo, Galileo, Machiavelli, and Rossini—rest here.

3. PANTEÃ NACIONAL (LISBON, PORTUGAL):

See the tombs of Salazar’s opponents at the National Pantheon, which took over 250 years to finally be completed.

4. WESTERKERK CHURCH (AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS):

Try to find Rembrandt’s burying place—even if the sanctuary’s keepers don’t know where he’s hiding.

5. SAINT PETER’S BASILICA (ROME, ITALY):

Don’t be too creeped out by the mummified popes on display in Vatican City.
