  • We were visiting with a group of friends and with an experienced guide who knew the place perfectly. He introduced us to the history of the birth of the cemetery and many of the buried characters and their stories. Lovely. I recommend visiting it with a guide will be in unique experience.

  • A moment of (permanent) respite in the hustle of Rome. This is the beautiful Non-Catholic Cemetery in Testaccio, where Keats and Shelley have their final rest, and the cemetery cats have their own Facebook page. The 300+ year-old cemetery houses Orthodox Christians, Jews, Muslims, Protestant and eastern Orthodox graves, along with Islam, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism and Confucianism. Even Daisy Miller, the heroine of Henry James's eponymous novella, was buried here, along with Beat poet Gregory Corso.
  • A place of silence beauty and history. Beautiful statues from the era. It's exciting to try to read some of the well-known names to those who belonged. I am moved by that of a cat that seems to me to be close to Gramsci's tomb.

  • An Oasis of Tranquility in the Testaccina Rome

  • Interestingly, so many non-Catholic foreigners choose to bury in Rome, well-known or unknown artists, poets and sculptors, and so on. Some of the more famous are Goethe (the poet's only son), as well as the British young poet Shelley and Keats. It is one of the oldest cemeteries in Europe ever since.

  • A very special place, surrounded by greenery where you can also see a side of the pyramid of Cestius. Particular highlights were, among others, the tombs of Gramsci, Shelley, Keats or Foa. Is fairly well maintained.
