Situated at the base of the Spanish Steps sits this small "bijou" museum. I know little of Keats or Shelley but this nicely maintained and well staffed museum was very interesting. Good video room as an introduction. Some more read poetry would be a possible...More

A beautiful little gem of a museum by the foot of The Spanish Steps. A must for any Keats and/or Shelley lover. In fact, a must for any literary lover.

Really enjoyed learning more about Keats' life and other poets from the romantic era. The main salon is a book lover's dream; the smell is amazing and all those beautiful old leather bound books are so satisfying to look at!

Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields
to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most
desirable neighbourhoods, 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
