This is directly behind the pyramid tomb in Testaccio. We noticed several large cats wandering around in a cemetery. We donated some euros to help with the maintenance and wandered around quietly with all of the cats and came across the graves of John Keats...More

Located just outside the old roman city walls and the Cestia Pyramid, it was created in the 17th century to give a final rest to the very few protestant people living or passing by the Eternal City. The cemetery definitely blossomed during the 18th century...More

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

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
