This was something very beautiful we saw in Rome! We do have a thing for cemeteries and the history that feels extremely present around them. Verano is Rome’s main cemetery. It’s also the oldest and most central one. Not many locals visit this monumental spot, even though it is indeed rich with monuments. It’s a peaceful place to walk when you feel like escaping the stressful San Lorenzo neighbourhood. The cemetery is huge and you can easily spend some time here. Some of the tombstones are gigantic and there are various styles of gravestones ranging from classical to contemporary. There are beautiful family monuments with sculptures, beautiful trees, and it is a very serene and quiet place to get out of the hustle and bustle of Rome. Once inside, you completely disconnect with the huge city surrounding you. There are many trees and gravel paths and some signposts of the most popular sculptures and graves.There was no crowd when we visited and the peacefulness and reminiscence of those who walked this earth was striking.

Well worth the visit, this founded in 19th century cemetery is located in less frequented by tourists bohemian district of San Lorenzo, on the other side of the railway tracks. A lot of interesting sculptures and photos on tombstones. If you find a large grave marked “Garibaldi” (close to the main entrance) -- this is NOT where the Italian national hero Garibaldi is buried (he is buried on Sardinia in his native village of Caprera). The place has many sections from different periods, so unless you are interested in a specific section only, allow a few hours to explore.

A very ancient cemetery – it has been a burial site for at least twenty centuries. The present cemetery was established in the early 1800’s. It is well worth it to go see the cemetery due to the level of sculpture of the various monuments inside. Indeed, there are artistic works from various ages, some quite beautiful. Amazing to see the many, many generations buried together. The photos and portraits of the dead are very moving. Well worth a visit if in the area.

My wife and I were looking for something different after a week of churches and Roman ruins. This is a HUGE cemetery with crypts above ground (burials below). Lots of interesting history dating from about the late 1800’s to more modern times. Many interesting monuments. The cemetery seems to be in a bit of decay and neglect. Virtually no tourists when we were there in March. Not crowded at all. Tip — If you get there and the main gates are closed, enter from the NW side near the in-wall of crypts. A lot of cats roaming the grounds.

An amazing cemetery right outside the walls. Impressed by the number of flower vendors outside. Many well maintained and many are huge family mausoleums designed like small chapels. So many wonderful Italian names that we have in America too. Peace.
