Had wanted to visit for years. Last minute decision to stop in. Interesting for any bibliophile and setting puts you back in time. Great sense of romanticism and interesting to remind us that Rome has been attracting artists, scholars, and poetic souls for ages. Can...More

Well I had always wanted to visit this museum, but in my several trips to Rome I never took the time, until now. OK, that's done -- and it only took about 30 minutes of my time. I can honestly say that the highlight of...More

The Keats-Shelley House is practically right next to the Spanish Steps, so it would be a pity if you went to the one and neglected the other, particularly if you are a literary enthusiast! many of us would have read and studied Keats and Shelley...More

I've wanted to visit this house for a number of years but each time I've been to Rome it seems to have passed me by, thankfully not this time. Keats' poetry has long been a significant part of my life and standing in the room...More

The rooms are overwhelmed by what looks like Victorian bookshelves, which means that information is placed high up and is difficult to read. Not to mention that the info looks like it was typed out half a century ago. The bookshelves ruin any vestige of...More

First of all, we very much regret that the style and decor of the House were not to your taste. You state that "the rooms are overwhelmed by what looks like Victorian bookshelves" and that "the bookshelves ruin any vestige of what the house looked...More

Whether interested in the romantics or not, still worth a visit. A relaxed and tranquil environment to learn about the past and spend time in the moment. If you are looking for somewhere to be mindful you couldn't find a better place. I would definitely...More

Situated at the base of the Spanish Steps sits this small "bijou" museum. I know little of Keats or Shelley but this nicely maintained and well staffed museum was very interesting. Good video room as an introduction. Some more read poetry would be a possible...More

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
