A beautiful place. So green and beautifully kept and the odd cat wandering about ( don`t worry if you aren`t a cat fan, they`re not everywhere and usually trundle off unless you encourage them to come to you) Most visitors seem to come to see the Shelley and Keats graves and then don`t bother with much of the rest so...

A beautiful garden full of respect, memories and examples that we should never forget. The cemetery also hosts one of the famous cats colonies of Rome. A hidden jewel to be visited.

Just got back from Rome and based on recommendations from here visited and what a gem. Its a walled cemetery in the middle of a busy interchange, which you would not know as so peaceful and quite. Shelley and Keats are both interred here. Its off the beaten track but well worth the trip. Just get on the Blue Metro... More

A friend who lives in Rome took me to the cemetery. It is commonly called the Protestant Cemetery, but it was built for all non-Catholics. You will find many Jewish tombs and headstones here, as well as other non-Catholics. Keats and Shelly are buried here. There are lovely large trees sheltering the cemetery, many beautiful headstones and tombs to view.... More

This was one of the best places we visited in Rome. Quiet, green, and peaceful. Easy to hop on a bus (#83 to Paritigiani) from Via Corso or Piazza Venezia, about 10 stops later (10-15 minutes), get off at Campo Boaria and head towards the Pyramid. Turn left onto Via Marmorata and take your first left onto Via Caio Cestio.... More

Rome in October is hot, sticky and crowded. The Parthenon, The Colosseum, Trevi Fountain all well and good, fabulous places to visit but they're packed full of people. Visiting a cemetery seems like an odd thing to do on holiday but it's such a serenely cool and relaxing place with such history - it's one of the best things we... More

Near Porta San Paolo, where via Ostiense start moving to Ostia, you can find a small magic cemetery. Out of the city walls non-catholic people were buried in thi area. Tombs of poets (Keats and Shelley), writers (Corso and Gadda), politicians like Gramsci, sculptors and other artists are placed between the trees, few steps away from the Piramide Cestia,

The entrance to the cemetery is behind the Pyramid of Cestius. It's very beautiful & on a hot day very cool & calm. At the entrance there's a donation box & I was shocked to see that nobody donated anything, shame on you all. Keats and shelley where buried here. The mod the weeping Angel is in the first row...

Neighborhood Profile
Testaccio
Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio, an ancient Roman port and former working class neighborhood where the bass is set to high almost every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche (nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club hit, the area is full of locally owned small businesses and has one of the city's larger produce markets.
