  • Thanks to the extraordinary opening that the property grants on the first of the month it was possible to visit the Casino of the Aurora Pallavicini. The fresco of Guido Reni and the garden are beautiful, to visit.

  • Only open to the public on the first day of the month, it was not necessary to book but it is convenient to do so to ensure access, has a very small cost for the audio equipment, about 3 euros per person, what if it is very important to check the access time and preferably being a few minutes early, the place is unique to art lovers, the guided tour lasts a couple of hours

  • On a private visit, I had the chance to visit this charming little pavilion, wanted by Scipio Borghese at the beginning of the 17th century. It is located a stone's throw from the Quirinal Palace (then the residence of the popes and thus of his uncle Paul V). Through the Scala della Pastorella, decorated with Roman marbles, you can access a beautiful hanging garden, protected as a secret setting, and the Casino, richly decorated with the faces of 2nd century sarcophagi. Its façade opens with large floor-to-ceiling windows over a large room. Guido Reni decorated the ceiling with a more classic Aurora than that painted by the Guerchin at the Ludovisi casino. For Stendhal, it was "the most intelligible of the frescoes". It shows Apollo driving the chariot of the Sun, surrounded by the Hours and preceded by the Dawn. Two other side rooms have their ceilings also decorated with frescoes. Also to be seen are beautiful sculptures, including an Athena, easily identifiable thanks to the owl that accompanies it. This intimate place is frequently reserved for prestigious events.

  • The environment here is very good.
  • Thanks for San Bonaventura.
  • If you are around the area, the date is the first day of the month (except January for obvious reasons), and the time is within 10-12h or 15-17h, then for sure go see Guido Reni's beautiful fresco on the ceiling of the only room open to public. The façade of the palazzo is also lovely.
  • A place that is located in the residence of the Pallavicini.... In front of the Quirinale... I was disappointed because I thought all the locals were visitable...... To alas most closed except the Casino Hall of the Aurora..!!! Not even the beautiful walkable garden avenues...!!! And even worse, no photos..... In short, a disappointment.....

  • Beautiful guided tour with the association Roma Sparita. Historic palace of Rome a short walk from the Quirinale. Built unfortunately completely destroying the baths of Constantine has passed between various owners belonging to the Roman nobility and not. Only visited on the first day of the month. Palace still inhabited by the Pallavicini family and therefore can only be visited, as it were said, the mess of the aurora with the masterpiece of Guido Reni. Wonder for the eyes
