Dark sights in Florence
- Sort by:
If you are a little sick of museums and need some air and a change of speed, you might consider heading east for the so-called English Cemetery. Located outside what were the city walls in 1828, and now effectively forming a large traffic island around which swarm thousands of hectic Florentine commuters, it is more accurately a Protestant cemetery and Swiss property.
Several notable foreigners rest in (relative) peace here, including Elizabeth Barrett Browning and Walter Savage Landor, part of the clique of Anglo writers that made Florence home.
