You won't find this place crowded but you will find stunning gravestones (complete with an authentic pyramid) and well kept environs. If you find cemeteries interesting then you should not miss this one.

This is a famous cemetery due to some of the people buried there all of whom I did not know. However it is totally worth a visit anyway as it is stunning. Some very old graves in there in a beautiful setting.

All of the “excellent” reviews are accurate. While visiting Shelley’s grave, turn around and look behind you to find best poet Gregory Corso’s grave. It’s far far less visited than the literary giants in this cemetery, but curious nonetheless.

Most wonderful spot. Beautiful. Last entrance at 16.30. However, nice staff let us in 5min after closure. 3Euro per person on donation basis. Well worth it.

Beautiful, peaceful, meditative. A strange and liminal place scented with roses and wisteria. A special place to walk, reflect and breathe in history.

This beautiful, serene cemetery is not easy to find. It is down an alley near the Piramid. If you find it, it is worth the visit. It sits on a hill (like most things in Rome). We visited specifically because I wanted to see the...More

Put the house music on replay and you have Testaccio,
an ancient Roman port and former working class
neighbourhood where the bass is set to high almost
every night of the week. Its collection of discoteche
(nightclubs), street parties, and crowded restaurants
give it its well-deserved party reputation. During the
daytime, Testaccio is more easy listening than club
