Ok we went to see the Piramide! It’s disappointing. It’s new and nothing really exciting. However the graveyard behind it / next to it has some interesting history. I am still going to rate it 3 stars. You be the judge.

Interesting, but small. Not worth seeking out to me. Just worth seeing on the way out of town or on a tour as a drive by. It is not open to go into, so a momentary photo op at best.

We were on our way to the local tram museum when we spotted this pyramid. Looking somewhat out of place we thought it might be some modern idea but no it's one of Rome's best kept ancient monuments. We missed the cemetery but found the...More

We happened upon this pyramid on our way to the train station. It was a great discovery, unexpected! Worth a look, plus there was little market in the area with one lovely colourful summer dresses!

Unfortunately the pyramid was not open but it is great just to see it. The non-catholic cemetery is a wonderful place with Keats and Shelley's graves. Don't miss the grave with the beautiful angel draped over it. Then there is the cat colony down in...More

Amazingly old pyramid that's worth a look, but dont miss out on the cemetary behind it or popping into the tiny cafe in the middle between the tram stops and the metro. Best porchetta I ate the entire 16 days in Italy.

We mistakenly took bus 83 in the wrong direction but it did give us the opportunity to see this amazing structure and located next to it the Gate of St Paul. Running through here was interesting to see all of the old city walls.

When you go a tour or read about Rome sooner or later you will hear about the expansiveness of the empire and how animals and symbols of conquered lands were brought back to Rome. The pyramid of Cestius is a reminder of this. It's worth...More

We were fortunate to happen upon the Piramide when it was open for tours. We found it to be very interesting as was the cemetery located adjacent to the Piramide.

Very interesting to see a pyramid in the centre of Rome! We couldn't go in but it's brill to see just from the outside. Very easy to reach as it's just outside the metro station.

Contrary to the chaos of the city, the Aventine is
Rome’s oasis. A neighborhood made up of a patchwork of
ancient churches, hidden gardens, private homes and
embassies, peace and quiet is top priority and the
vibe definitely friends and family. Take a walk around
the Aventine and you’ll find a treasure hunt of
surprises like the clever little keyhole at the
Knights of Malta entrance (the only place you’ll find

There was no scaffolding when we were there in June. Apparently you can go into it every so often. Might be worth researching which days those are in case you happen to be there at that time.
