The Bible does not say where, when or how Paul died. 

There are many theories. One tradition is that Paul was beheaded by Romans under the Emperor Nero around May/June of 68AD. 

In 2006, archeologist uncovered what they believe to be Paul's tomb. See (http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/europe/6219656.stm) in a crypt under a basilica in Rome.

The Bible does not say when, where or how Paul died. All we have is the tradition of the Church Fathers. Clement who was Paul's disciple only says that he was martyred in Rome, but dose not say how he died.
