If you are seeking a little respite from the intensity of the city, this is the place for you. The fact that luminaries such as Shelley and Keats have their final resting places here is an aside, the graveyard itself is one of the most...More

This is a delightful area of Rome : next to the Cestos Pyramide you will find this oasis full of old monuments- among them the graves of English poets Keats and Shelley And the Danish poet Carsten Hauch

It is hard to underestimate the impact of seeing the 12BC pyramid nestling in the grounds of the cemetery but it fits perfectly as do the many 'pyramid' cats who wander freely. This is a beautifully kept cemetery and there are many notable graves including...More

This is a beautiful spot, with shade and a breeze on a hot day. Narrow paths wind between the tombs and grave markers. There is also a nice view and explanation of the Pyramid of Cestius. Worth seeing if you're in the area.

You won't find this place crowded but you will find stunning gravestones (complete with an authentic pyramid) and well kept environs. If you find cemeteries interesting then you should not miss this one.

This is a famous cemetery due to some of the people buried there all of whom I did not know. However it is totally worth a visit anyway as it is stunning. Some very old graves in there in a beautiful setting.

All of the “excellent” reviews are accurate. While visiting Shelley’s grave, turn around and look behind you to find best poet Gregory Corso’s grave. It’s far far less visited than the literary giants in this cemetery, but curious nonetheless.

Even if Keats and Shelly weren't buried here, it would be worth a side trip to Cimitero Acattolico (non-Catholic Cemetery) just to see the grounds and the giant Pyramid! Easy trip on Metro to Piramide station and a couple blocks walk from there. One of...More

Cimitero Acattolico per Stranieri is a non-Catholic cemetery in Rome. It's for non-Catholics, in general, and British or Protestants, in particular. It is behind the Caius Cestius Pyramid in Via Caio Cestio. This beautiful, serene cemetery is not easy to find. It is down an...More

This place is a must-visit for everyone who is taking a trip to Rome. It is so truly spiritual and beautiful. I loved the fact that there are cats walking around, they make everything so much more special. I recommend it to everyone who wants...More

Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio,
an ancient Roman port and former working class
neighborhood where the bass is set to high almost
every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche
(nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants
give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the
daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club
hit, the area is full of locally owned small
