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,...

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
