Famous Burials

Rome's non-Catholic Cemetery contains possibly the highest density of famous and important graves anywhere in the world. It is the final resting-place of the poets Shelley and Keats, many painters, sculptors, and authors, and a number of scholars. Also here is Goethe's only son, as well as Antonio Gramsci, a founding father of European Communism, to name just a few. From the middle of the eighteenth to the middle of the twentieth centuries more than four thousand persons were buried here. Make sure to stop by the massive Pyramid of Caius Cestius - you can't miss it, its literally built into the walls.
