Myrtle Hill Cemetery is a chance to see very interesting markers. It offers a panoramic view of the city. It will require careful walking and comfortable shoes. On special weekends they have excellent tour guides.

very hilly, wear comfortable shoes, only visit in daytime, dangerous area of town for night. Ellen Axson Wilson (former first lady) is buried here as well as many Civil War soldiers. Bring your camera--beautiful haunting place to visit.

It's a wonderful, historic place. The "known" soldier from WW1 is buried here. His mother didn't want him buried at Arlington Cemetery. There is so much history here and quite a few interesting monuments to those that have passed on.

The cemetery is right downtown and has a multitude of Civil War graves here. I suggested taking a walking tour. However the hills are steep and the steps... More

I find it very odd that the number one attraction in Rome, GA is a cemetery. It is a nice place to take a walk with a pleasant view from the top. It is an easy walk to the top for someone of average fitness.

The road into this historic cemetery needs a little work, it is a one-way maze and all uphill. Not for those who might have a tendency to carsickness. That said, it is one of the most impressive cemeteries I have ever seen--built on a hill, and many old old graves. One can almost hear the Civil War songs as one... More

The drive through this cemetery is beautiful and full of gorgeous monuments and tombstones. There is a sizable confederate section, a former First Lady buried here, a Known Soldier and many other attractions of interest, including a new Mausoleum.

This is a place with a lot of history, and has great views of the city. Need to allow time to be able to walk around to look at all of the headstones.

Beautiful Cemetery with some historical burial plots. At the top of Myrtle Hill, you can see most of the City of Rome. A little sketchy at night but worth a trip during the day.
