Rome

Antica Spezieria

23 Piazza della Scala
Church of Santa Maria della Scala
Rome, 00153, Italy

Carmelite monks will guide you through the 17th-century pharmacy where medicines were once concocted for popes. You'll find ornate cabinets filled with hand-labeled bottles, portraits of famous clients, and a giant book of mysterious writings about medicinal plants—all untouched since the pharmacy's closure in 1954.
