Acatholic Cemetery, Pyramid of Cestius and Porta San Paolo

An unexpected Rome: a walk in the most unusual and fascinating places of town, sities less known by the general public but for this reason not less suggestive

The Acatholic Cemetery is a place of unusual beauty and peace that demonstrates the love of many foreigners for the eternal city. Traditionally, Rome has been a destination for visitors from all over the world. For them in 1800 this cemetery was created. It was initially only for non-Catholics, like the poets Shelley and Keats, but later many celebrities have chosen to be buried here, even to the present day! The place where beauty softens pain and gives a breath of eternity to memory! Another exceptional tomb is located right next to it: a pyramid! That’s right, like in Egypt! In 18 BC Gaius Cestius Epulonius wanted to build an unusual and spectacular tomb! And to be honest, seeing a pyramid of white marble, 37 meters high in Rome, arouses a marvel! Not far from there, stands, miraculously preserved, Porta San Paolo (formerly Porta Ostiensis). It is exciting to get up on the ramparts of the walls originally built by Emperor Aurelian in 275 AD, to understand how it works and to imagine how many thousands of people, travelers, workers, pilgrims and invaders have passed through here to get to Rome. You can be one of those and become part of the story!
