A Serene and Impressive Place

In 1959, a relative visited. Pictures sent by me were taken during that visit. There are excellent monuments and graveyards. It is a soothing place and especially I had the opportunity to visit the grave of Private in the picture.

Walking in a cemetery can be very soothing and tranquil. I really like this serene cimitero with beautiful architecture and landscaping. You should really take your time when you visit this place as it is really big. Just wander around and let yourself be surprised by the beauty of the mysterious sculptures of angels and the little painted portraits on... More

Whilst waiting for the Basilica di San Lorenzo to open, we wandered further up the piazza and were amazed to find the entrance of the huge Verano cemetery. With time to spare we wandered in without expectation. We were in awe. The architecture, individual crypts and landscaping, coupled with the complete serenity of the place were totally unexpected. Albeit a... More

huge park, surrounded by great walls. many of the graves are build into the walls of massive buildings (i think from the 1890s-1930) and look impressive. they reminded me a bit of libraries, there are ladders everywhere so people can reach the upper floors. some graves are taken care of others look quite rotten. in hot summer days you can...

I went to the Verano for a funeral and many of my ancestors are buried there. It dawned on me the last time I was there, that it would probably be of interest to people as there are beautiful family monuments with sculptures, beautiful trees, and is a very serene place. Also a very large place. Its very quiet and... More

We like to visit graveyards during our travels, both home and abroad. This graveyard is vast, so we did not plan to wander through the entire area. Nor did we need to, as even a relatively short walk offers diverse sights. One needs to climb relatively steep stairs but is rewarded by beautiful vistas and everywhere the intermixing of tombs,...

This widely expansive cemetery near the Basilica of San Lorenzo fuori le Mura dates to the 19th century and holds many notable graves. We visited and stayed awhile after we visited the Basilica, and we found a beautiful, reverent, and peaceful setting in which to contemplate and pray. If you visit the ancient basilica next door, make it a point... More

Although the Accatolica (non-Catholic, or Protestant-foreingners cemetery) gets more attention for its famous patrons (Keats, Shelley, etc), the Monumental cemetery of the Verano more than makes up for that, with beautiful crypts, mosaic inlaid tombs, and beautiful statues and architecture. Give yourself a minimum of two hours to carelessly stroll through this gorgeous cemetery, and visit those who would entomb... More

Staying in San Lorenzo

Neighborhood Profile
San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo may look all street with its pulse in urban art and street food, but don’t be fooled. This gritty student neighborhood immediately east of Termini train station is on the avant-garde rise. Art galleries, curated mural projects by artists like Rome’s favorite Alice, charming cafes, and boutique restaurants are slowly infiltrating the streets of San Lorenzo with counter-culture chic. Don’t worry, San Lorenzo still retains its local vibe with weekend festivals and demonstrations, and is always a hub for Rome’s university student scene.
