Fascinating place to go back in time, providing a peaceful, tranquil place enabling you to share the same views that Keats and Shelley had during their time in Rome. The house is packed full of Romantic Poets archives. A must see during your time in...More

The rooms are overwhelmed by what looks like Victorian bookshelves, which means that information is placed high up and is difficult to read. Not to mention that the info looks like it was typed out half a century ago. The bookshelves ruin any vestige of...More

So tragic and magical it almost moved me to tears. Try and go off season, on a quiet day. I really felt the connection, and felt so inspired that I sat down and started writing.

Paris, London, Berlin, and Vienna . . . Are not the only major literary hubs in 19th century Europe. Come to the Keats-Shelley house and get introduced to Rome’s influence on literary greats. A must see, at least for a break from the terrible touristic...More

It maybe be small but is crammed full of interesting letters and artefacts concerning the lives of Keats, Shelley and Byron. Very atmospheric and led to us visiting the Non-Catholic cemetery where Keats and Shelley are buried. Very helpful and knowledgeable staff.

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighborhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best
place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and
Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with
enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s
best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a
fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to
