An amazing cemetery right outside the walls. Impressed by the number of flower vendors outside. Many well maintained and many are huge family mausoleums designed like small chapels. So many wonderful Italian names that we have in America too. Peace.

The cemetery was not far from our apartment, quite fascinating and made an interesting walk. Some very elaborate mausoleums and an underground section which contained hundreds of graves - not something you’d see in the UK.

The Campo Verano was founded in the early 19th century. Reasonably clean and with an interesting collection of monumental architecture and a grand church. The cemetery is apparently divided into sections: the Jewish cemetery, the Catholic cemetery, and the monument to the victims of World War 1. We found no...More

In 1959, a relative visited. Pictures sent by me were taken during that visit. There are excellent monuments and graveyards. It is a soothing place and especially I had the opportunity to visit the grave of Private in the picture.

Whilst waiting for the Basilica di San Lorenzo to open, we wandered further up the piazza and were amazed to find the entrance of the huge Verano cemetery. With time to spare we wandered in without expectation. We were in awe. The architecture, individual crypts...More

I went to the Verano for a funeral and many of my ancestors are buried there. It dawned on me the last time I was there, that it would probably be of interest to people as there are beautiful family monuments with sculptures, beautiful trees,...More

We like to visit graveyards during our travels, both home and abroad. This graveyard is vast, so we did not plan to wander through the entire area. Nor did we need to, as even a relatively short walk offers diverse sights. One needs to climb...More

San Lorenzo
San Lorenzo may look all street with its pulse in
urban art and street food, but don’t be fooled. This
gritty student neighbourhood immediately east of
Termini train station is on the avant-garde rise. Art
galleries, curated mural projects by artists like
Rome’s favorite Alice, charming cafes, and boutique
restaurants are slowly infiltrating the streets of San
Lorenzo with counter-culture chic. Don’t worry, San
