Strolling through Hidden Gardens
Find the steps that lead up to the slightly ramshackle gardens of the Villa Aldobrandini and you are likely to have the place to yourselves. Traces of grandeur can still be seen with remnants of statues scattered about the green quiet space. Step through the gates of the Non-Catholic Cemetery and into a another world. You will be enveloped in lush green and hushed silence. Visit the graves of the english romantic poets John Keats and Percy Bysshe Shelley and recite lines of poetry to each other in this peaceful place. The Basilica Sant'Andrea delle Fratte holds the original Bernini sculptures of the angels from Ponte Sant’Angelo, but after catching a glimpse of the baroque angels seek out the door that leads to a peaceful cloister. You will find yourself under frescoed arches and with only the company of song birds
