Rome bella bellíssima. (And no Vatican. I'm a sinner. Hallelujah!!!)

I went to the Protestant Cemetery. 

Yes!:

Shelley's tomb. Can't express with words my feelings

 
The beautiful cemetery was full of friendly cats. Shelley had one as well


Keats is there too, in the old part of the Cemetery. His grave is the left one.


So happy... dreams come true

I never visited these graves, but I think that I understand your feelings. My personal dream was to visit Oscar Wilde's grave in Paris, and while I was there I also paid homage to Gertrude Stein (and Jim Morrison...) It was an unforgettable experience.

Beautiful pictures, thank you for sharing!

You are welcome.
I went to Paris 2 years ago and I visited Montmartre and Pere Lachaise cemeteries (I really love cemeteries). Nijinsky (in Montmartre, a beautiful and charming cemetery. Full of cats as well), Marcel Proust (quite touching; there was a girl crying, embracing the stone), Modigliani (one of my favourites painters. Very sad), Oscar (what a grave! How was your experience?), Jim Morrison (I didn't like it; too oppressive), Isadora Duncan, Maria Callas and of course, Gertrude Stein (passionate work and life. I love la Rive Gauche, Paris on the 20s, her intellectuals salon... the tomb is nice and Alice B. Tocklas, her life partner, is also buried there with her (inscription behind). Sure I'm missing people, but I wasn't there to collect graves and names...
I'll try to show you my pictures.

I forgot to mention... when we were in Paris we also went to Auvers sur Oise, to visit Vincent Van Gogh's grave. Auvers is a wonderful village, full of Vincent traces. We visited the small bedroom where he died (in Rome we visited the room where Keats died), lots of museums and places that he painted. It was my partner's dream. When we were in front of Vincent and Theo's grave it was very very touching, special (we wait until we were alone, without hundreds of japanese tourists taking pictures and posing with big smiles).

I have never travelled, so it is lovely to see things like this through other peoples's eyes.

Thank you for posting. Will we see more pics of your travels?
