  • It is a cemetery, but also an open air museum and a historical monument. There are modern, old and ancient tombs of strangers and characters more or less known. Upon entering and walking for a few minutes we realize just how immense, it goes up and down hills, tree-lined avenues, parks, fountains and monuments. A real city of the dead. Some areas are a little tacky, but there are works of art and architecture that deserve a visit.

  • A particular place, usually off the beaten path for most visitors, but to be included in the programme of the visit to a city so rich in history. Unable to delve into the place at one time being its surface wide about 83 hectares, crossed by long avenues you can wander around looking for great personalities who have made the history of our country and its political film. Having downloaded the map with the locations to search for the graves that interest me I have benefited, but often the numbers on the sides of the avenues are not well marked and not visible so there goes a lot of patience in the search. At the entrance a caretaker very kindly provided us with information on how to find some historical tombs. Exciting pausing to remember where they rest, great actors like Aldo Fabrizi, Alberto Sordi, Vittorio De Sica ...

  • Monumental cemetery in Rome. Fascinating to wander along the boulevards observing historical tombs, many of them of great value. It would be useful to make it as the Pere Lachaise in Paris with visits and historical map of the tombs. And you would have to fight the deterioration that is gripping even this Roman artwork.

  • A very peaceful and we'll kept cemetery with some some beautiful tombs. Great place to bring you back down to earth, pray for the souls who have gone before us, meditate on reality and eternal life.
  • 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, and is a very serene place. Also a very large place. Its very quiet and peaceful and a good place to get out of the hustle and bustle of Rome. Once inside you completely disconnect with the huge city surrounding you.
  • The section of the cemetery reserved for the families of the Popes was quite an exciting place. All types of art work can be seen. Very much similar to art work as can be seen in the Vatican. But without the limiting lines of tourists. You can look, admire and touch. The section for gli caduti or fallen ones of War was unexpected. Worth a look.
  • This cemetery is very peaceful and quiet; I didn't find there the crowd and the smog I've found in other cemeteries. At the same time it's not dull. I recommend it for your eternal life.
  • The statuary is amazing. Unfortunately everything could use a cleaning and repair.

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
