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.
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
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
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
a line) along with Parco Savello (Giardino degli Aranci) next to the ancient Santa Sabina church. Keep your eyes on the 1960s architecture, several modern buildings are built atop Rome’s original 4th century BC wall.

I didn't go inside. There is a posting on the gate outside with an email or phone number you can use to arrange something. You may also try googling COOP Culture Piramide Cestia visit. I think visits can be arranged... More

The Pyramid's interior is only open to the public at certain, limited times. Go to the coopculture website (the same website for the Colosseum, I'd paste it here TripAdvisor will not let me include the link) and search for the Piramide Cestia. I'd certainly try to book in advance to make sure there will be a tour and, if so, that you get a slot. Otherwise some private tour companies or groups will sometimes schedule a tour.
