The Protestant Cemetery in Rome, (now called the Non-Catholic cemetery to represent other faiths that are represented there, such as Islam, Judaism and Buddhism) also know as the Englishman’s cemetery is the final resting place of some of the world’s more important figures, from diplomats and scholars to sculptors and poets, such as the great British poets John Keats and Percy Bysshe Shelley.

It’s hard to imagine that behind its towering walls in Rome’s Piramide area, such a luscious paradise exists. This heavenly garden is abundant with exotic flowers and cypress trees, amongst which are nestled elaborately sculpted grave stones and tombs.

“It might make one in love with death, to think that one should be buried in so sweet a place” – Shelley
