Rome Residences

The Shelleys had several Rome addresses.
In the winter 1818, the party arrived in Rome and spent a week enjoying the sights before returning to the gloom of Naples. They stayed at 8 Via del Sediari, just off the Piazza Navona (with its celebrated fountains).

Rome - Protestant Cemetery

Rome's Protestant Cemetery is small, and is divided roughly into two halves. The section in which Shelley's ashes are buried faces the entrance gate, and is densely crowded with gravestones. Shelley's grave is set off in a sheltered area at the rear—the roof can be seen between the trees in the first photo below. Next to him is buried his friend Edward Trelawny, who died in England in 1881.
