  • monumental and full of graves of famous people leave however maximally the degradation and abandoned; could not obtain information because you do not find mail the keeper ... only one wall map that is out of date: it is a real shame when you consider that many other cemeteries of this level in town no less important are well organized and genuine tourist destinations: we always recognize, unfortunately

  • Definitely avoid ... ... Don't stay if not out of necessity. Accustomed to the service of the cemeteries in Milan, via both in terms of accessibility (they are very from media), that Tomb Discovery (come with totem, with much of the press, to the search for the deceased--as well as mobile apps), I found myself in the desert! Via the internet we understand that the train stop closest to the Verano cemetery is Roma Tiburtina. Too bad then to reach the walls, visible from the station itself, must be traversed two boulevards that look a lot like the Beltway. The subways, provided that those it is, are not usable as reduced to pots, too. Crossed the boulevards with a long gymkhana to cross on crosswalks, you arrive to the walls. Going right you reach almost immediately a secondary entrance. If you are looking for famous people rely on the kindness of florists you present them. The main entrance is located on the opposite side. So either arrived at walls lined going left or right inputs and cross around the cemetery. It takes about 20 minutes. Inside the cemetery the shuttle is deleted and there are no totems. For as much as you hear the Verano, do it with detailed directions. The offices are where there is the main entrance. Careful where you put your feet: carelessness is liable to threaten to fall: on the ground, on the tarmac, it was perhaps due to the excessive rain, has formed a slippery patina.

  • This monumental cemetery, the most important of Rome, has origins dating back to the early Christian period. Today, however, its appearance is typical of the monumental cemeteries in the mid-19th century in European cities, but also in many cities of the Americas were built with monuments and funeral chapels in the taste of the period. This has perhaps the charm of other cemeteries, but is a place for a visit to the nearby Basilica of San Lorenzo I wouldn't run away. At the lowest artistic chapels and burial in a 19th-century style still not matured towards the blooming liberty, evocative historical characters whose strength makes up the tombs or mausoleums meet quite by accident. The burial Garibaldi to mausoleum of Mameli, father of our national anthem, and then the burials of many princely Roman noble families, the chapels of great religious orders, simple burials and those of poets and writers, architects and artists. Significant is the portico, the Grand square surrounded by a porch on which side you can admire the most beautiful tombs and funerary sculptures of the 19th century, until you reach the beautiful central church dedicated to a venerated Madonna del rosario. And then the flowers, cypress trees and ancient trees, a sense of peace and serenity.

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Not as atmospheric as for instance Père Lachaise in Paris, but definitivly worth a visit.
  • The statuary is amazing. Unfortunately everything could use a cleaning and repair.
