A dead calm side to Rome

When you can travel to Rome again, I strongly recommend a trip to the city’s Protestant Cemetery, where non-Catholics have made their final journey for several centuries, including the poets Shelley and Keats.

It’s a supremely calm space in a noisy city. Entry is free with a suggested donation of €3. Plus you get to meet the cemetery cats – if you’re lucky you might be greeted by Percy, as we were.
