Visit Cimitero Accattolico, a charming place that's located in the heart of historic Testaccio district, and largely unknown even to most Romans. See the final resting place of writers and poets and other non-Catholics, at the foot of the Aurelian Walls.
What to Expect
On this 3-hour tour that’s priced for a group of up to 6 participants you’ll visit a cemetery created in the early 1700s to house the tombs of all the non-Catholics who died in Rome.
Many of those who have been buried here were writers and poets (such as Keats and Shelley). The cemetery is still in use today, and is the final resting place of the noted Communist party leader Antonio Gramsci.
You’ll see an interesting variety of artistically designed tombs in this burial ground that’s located at the foot of the Aurelian Walls, next to the Pyramid of Caius Cestius.
The tour will conclude with a walk along the ramparts of Porta San Paolo, one of the best preserved section of the ancient city walls.
