Virgil's Tomb

Virgil's tomb (Italian: Tomba di Virgilio) is a Roman burial vault dating back to the Augustan age, located in Naples, southern Italy. It is found at the entrance to the old Roman tunnel known as the grotta vecchia or cripta napoletana in the Piedigrotta district of the city.

Virgil's tomb is located on the hill between Mergellina and Fuorigrotta, on the road heading north along the coast, beside a very old tuff quarry. It is a small, unimpressive-looking structure, with a small dome of rocks located at the top of the park.

Famous quotes containing the words tomb and/or virgil:

    And so all the night-tide, I lie down by the side
    Of my darling, my darling, my life and my bride
    In her sepulchre there by the sea—
    In her tomb by the side of the sea.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)

    To me this world is all one continued vision of fancy or imagination, and I feel flattered when I am told so. What is it sets Homer, Virgil and Milton in so high a rank of art? Why is Bible more entertaining and instructive than any other book? Is it not because they are addressed to the imagination, which is spiritual sensation, and but mediately to the understanding or reason?
    William Blake (1757–1827)
