A nice museum, to be visited only if you have the time & is interested in English Literature. Keats & Shelly were both English writers who lived in Rome. Brought back a lot of memories of their great work.

A sombre place, filled with memories of a lost generation of English poets and writers, yet also inspirational at the same time. The two key figures - John Keats and Percy Bysshe Shelley - both died far too young and this museum is a tribute to their incomplete promise and potential. The most notable spot is Keat's bedroom, complete with... More

I am a bookworm and huge fan of literature so when I found out there is a Keats-Shelley museum, I had to see it. It offers a lot of artifacts from the life of this poet who died so young, his letters, books, personal things. There is also room located exactly where it used to be when he lived there... More

We (4 of us including our 15yr old boy and 13 yr old girl) were here as part of a 4 night visit. (Please see the other reviews if you're planning something similar). We visited the Keats museum next to the Spanish Steps and I’d definitely recommend it to other former students of English Lit, but is probably miss-able otherwise.

Keats-Shelly’s residence (now a Memorial museum) is at the foot of Spanish Steps and is little known. The crowd just streams past this site without even giving it a glance! Voila! The best place to shut from the madness and get swayed in the writings of these classical Romantic poets. The entry fee is € 5 and the experience is... More

Went to visit this house, arrived at 5.40 with hope of looking around for a quick 20 minutes. Had a brief look around the gift shop and tried to purchase tickets even though we only had 20 minutes. We were very rudely refused tickets as they wanted to close, blatantly the 2 ladies wanted to go home. I'm sure it... More

We had an hour in this lovely place, just enough time to watch the introductory film and wander through the few rooms on show, there is plenty to see - lots of letters, artefacts etc. Keats lived here with his friend Joseph Severn, and it is easy to imagine him sat on the little balcony overlooking the Spanish Steps.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighborhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (9pm), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
