This is a small but interesting museum dedicated to Keats and Shelley. Located near the Spanish Steps, it is a welcome break from the normal sights of the city.

Easy access at the bottom of the Spanish Steps. Beginning video was perfect intro. Small but lots to see. Must see if you are a fan of the era.

So tragic and magical it almost moved me to tears. Try and go off season, on a quiet day. I really felt the connection, and felt so inspired that I sat down and started writing.

Paris, London, Berlin, and Vienna . . . Are not the only major literary hubs in 19th century Europe. Come to the Keats-Shelley house and get introduced to Rome’s influence on literary greats. A must see, at least for a break from the terrible touristic...More

It maybe be small but is crammed full of interesting letters and artefacts concerning the lives of Keats, Shelley and Byron. Very atmospheric and led to us visiting the Non-Catholic cemetery where Keats and Shelley are buried. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff.

I love Italy and also England. This is the best of both worlds. It was so beautiful and peaceful. I really felt connected to Keats, Shelley and Byron. The books and the interior are so nice to see.

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
