I have just visited this cemetery for the second time. It is the most beautiful cemetery I have ever been to and I will come back again next time I am in Rome (I threw coin in Trevi, so it will be soon). It is a highlight. The gardens, the statues, the sheer beauty of the place...and of course the... More

A beautiful and serene spot in a historic part of Rome. Seeing the grave markers for famous personalities was quite special, as well as the more elaborate ones dotted around the cemetery (come here to see the original Angel of Grief sculpture for Emelyn Story). Don't forget to donate the €3 before you leave. And something else if you can... More

I have traveled to Rome for a few days up to a month for many years and never fail to visit here on each trip. This is one of the most beautiful and evocative places in the city. The combination of nature and grave monuments in this setting could not be more fitting. The flowers,shrubs and trees completely dispel any... More

Once you enter, you can't miss the scent of the flowers. It's overwhelming. The silence and piece is also amazing. The tombs are quite excuisite as well. And there's the pyramid too.

A mish mash of protestant graves and all the better for it, some big, some small, some elaborate, some simple and including a few great soils who made Rome their home, all set in a compact hillside filled with conifers and cats.

Its a nice break to walk around and view the many different types of people represented in this cemetery (compared to teh bastion of Catholicism that its surrounded by. Just poking around I noticed Zoroastrian, Jewish, Eastern Orthodox so that was interesting to see. Relatively quiet area of Rome, free entry but donations are politely asked for.

This must be one of the most peaceful places in Rome, right next to the pyramid of Caius Cestius. It houses the graves of Keats & Shelley among others. Is is an absolutely amazing place to visit. It is very well maintained & we keep on going back there every time we visit.

We came here to find the grave of my great great uncle who died here in January 1844, one week after his 18th birthday. I was probably the first member of the family to visit it. It is a very atmospheric place, beautifully kept, peaceful - we also rather liked the cats who potter around at one end (near the... More

Staying in Testaccio

Neighbourhood Profile
Testaccio
Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio, an ancient Roman port and former working class neighbourhood 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 businesses and has one of the city's larger produce markets.
