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.

The view from the top of the hill is really breathtaking, its one of the best views of Rome and I know many people who would picnic there. The road around the cemetery is... More

My 13 yr old son actually asked to visit this spot when we read about it in a hotel guidebook. It is beautiful and peaceful and the "road" through the cemetery was quite an adventure in itself! We took lots of photos, and he enjoyed seeing the "ancient" tombstones. Wear comfortable walking shoes.

I never thought I would enjoy walking through a cemetery but I loved this. It was interesting seeing how long people had been laid to rest there. They also have many statues to honor certain people that had done great things. We also looked at the soldiers markers. If you have the chance take a stroll through it.

While a cemetery may not be on your usual list of tourist attractions, please keep an open mind on this one. Aside from the beautiful and historiical grave markers, this location offers the best viewpoint of the entire city of Rome. Some of Rome's most beautiful photographs have been taken from the peak of Myrtle Hill Cemetery. Here you can... More
