A Glimpse of the Protestant Cemetery in Rome

The Protestant Cemetery is an out of the way spot in Rome located in the neighborhood of Testaccio.  It is a really serene place to spend a few hours exploring.  The cemetery holds the graves of several well known expats and it’s located just within the Aurelian Walls, which allows you to get up close to ancient Roman walls and the pyramid tomb of Gaius Cestius.  So here is just a little peak into the Protestant Cemetery in Rome.
