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....More
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.
The cemetery was not far from our apartment, quite fascinating and made an interesting walk. Some very elaborate mausoleums and an underground section which contained hundreds of graves - not something you’d see in the UK.
The Campo Verano was founded in the early 19th century. Reasonably clean and with an interesting collection of monumental architecture and a grand church.

We were in awe. The architecture, individual crypts...More
huge park, surrounded by great walls. many of the graves are build into the walls of massive buildings (i think from the 1890s-1930) and look impressive. they reminded me a bit of libraries, there are ladders everywhere so people can reach the upper floors.
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,...More
