A really surprising and idiosyncratic find in the middle of Rome. Full of letters, papers and paintings referring to the history of the time and the lives of these poets. The little terrace overlooking the Spanish steps is very charming as is the cute little shop.

A really interesting museum in the former home of John Keats and Joseph Severn. John Keats, a British poet, in September 1820 at the instigation of the doctors planned a trip to Rome. He rented an apartment in Piazza di Spagna. He died on February 23, 1825, just four months after his arrival. His body rests at the non-Catholic cemetery in Rome.Very interesting little museum. Includes interesting letters, pictures and gives you a good sense of Keats's final days. Very knowledgeable staff. Interesting place to visit, away from all the noise outside.

Such a unique historical site in Rome - situated directly on one of the busiest tourist spots in the city. By contrast, the Keats-Shelley House is a lovely respite from the hustle and bustle outside. There is no museum here like it. If you have any interest in literature or history at all, make sure to stop here.

A small museum at the Spanish Steps in the house where Keats spent a few months before his death. This is great for every lover of English romantic poetry, a bubble of peace in the city. It features the room where keats passed, a gorgeous wooden library with a wonderful collection, artworks and insights in Keats’, Shelley’s and other romantic poets’ lives. The staff is really kind and helpful. Loved the visit!

This is a poignant tribute to some great and tragic poets. The museum is very tranquil, reflective and interesting. The tranquility is really surprising as it is literally next to the Spanish Steps. Writers always choose tranquil places with a great atmosphere. It is also good value for money and seniors get half price! Well worth a visit.
