Keats' grave
John Keats' Tombstone

The Protestant Cemetery in Rome was founded in 1734 and is the oldest burial ground in continuous use in Europe. The cemetery is facing economic shortfalls that place its future in doubt. Notable figures from the Romantic period include John Keats, Joseph Severn, Edward Trelawny and Percey B. Shelley.
