I am a bookworm and huge fan of literature so when I found out there is a Keats-Shelley museum, I had to see it. It offers a lot of artifacts from the life of this poet who died so young, his letters, books, personal things. There is also room located exactly where it used to be when he lived there... More

We (4 of us including our 15yr old boy and 13 yr old girl) were here as part of a 4 night visit. (Please see the other reviews if you're planning something similar). We visited the Keats museum next to the Spanish Steps and I’d definitely recommend it to other former students of English Lit, but is probably miss-able otherwise.

Keats-Shelly’s residence (now a Memorial museum) is at the foot of Spanish Steps and is little known. The crowd just streams past this site without even giving it a glance! Voila! The best place to shut from the madness and get swayed in the writings of these classical Romantic poets. The entry fee is € 5 and the experience is... More

Went to visit this house, arrived at 5.40 with hope of looking around for a quick 20 minutes. Had a brief look around the gift shop and tried to purchase tickets even though we only had 20 minutes. We were very rudely refused tickets as they wanted to close, blatantly the 2 ladies wanted to go home. I'm sure it... More

We had an hour in this lovely place, just enough time to watch the introductory film and wander through the few rooms on show, there is plenty to see - lots of letters, artefacts etc. Keats lived here with his friend Joseph Severn, and it is easy to imagine him sat on the little balcony overlooking the Spanish Steps. It... More

We really enjoyed this dignified little museum. There are some videos at the start which are great if you don't know that much about John Keats, Percy Bysshe Shelley and Byron, which we didn't. The rooms are interesting and moving. There's plenty to look at, including manuscripts, letters and locks of hair. It's in such a popular tourist spot and... More

I am a writer who loves anything to do with literature and history. This museum did not disappoint me. It's very small and air conditioned. There are only about 3-4 rooms, all filled with history about the Romantic poets- Keats, Shelley and their companions Byron and Mary Shelley. The display cases are well done and all written in English. I... More

The Spanish Steps were "closed" during the week I visited Rome, so I wondered into this delightful, quiet Museum located right next to them. Wonderful information provided on the "romantic' poets of the era, especially Keats - you can see his bedroom where he died of TB - from this room you have a great view of the Spanish Steps... More

Right next to the Spanish Steps, on the right at the bottom. It is very small and run by the British Museum, but well worth a trip.

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
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 look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
