  • City Centre discoveries make who away from the noisy and often overfill and would find little-known subjects, which should not shy away from the small trouble: this is not hard to find - just a few steps from the "Piramide" Metro line B stop. From the output, you can see the pyramid of Cestius left hand beyond the roundabout. From there a few steps are's left clockwise to the next corner, - turn. After about 200 meters, you will reach the small entrance gate. Admission is free, which is rather rare in Rome. Friendly volunteer leaders - some speak German - provide information willingly. The visitor will find next to the grave of the son of Goethe also the graves of the architect Gottfried Semper, the patron of Henriette Hertz, the painter Hans von Marées, the poet of John Keats and Percy Shelley. Here rest 2 sons of Wilhelm von Humboldt and many many others. The cemetery was created in 1820 for those, who after Italy had longing, were however not a Catholic, and therefore on the other cemeteries could not be buried. It is worth to go to the extreme left: there are not only many of these graves to find. From here, you have also the best, i.e. blocked not by lattice look at the pyramid of Cestius which is usually locked.
