  • It will be the location of the Quirinale, it will be the completion of the area of the obelist thanks to the statues present, it will be the view. I think it's one of the most beautiful in the city! Clear personal opinion :)

  • It is a Roman obelisk, about 15 meters high, situated in Piazza do Quirinale. As the other obelisks in Rome its history is very interesting and worth a visit.

  • This is the obelisk at the entrance of Place Quirinale. At the root is a diosculli fountain with statues inspired by the twin brothers who are good at equestrian.

  • In 1781 this obelisk was discovered underground in the Great Tomb of Emperor Augustus. It was in three pieces at the time it was found. However, the Ikea Allen wrenches and packet of spare twisty-nuts were found nearby making reassembly easy. At a standing height of 14-1/2 meters, or laying length of the same, this obelisk would need a lot, a really huge amount, of chocolate syrup to completely cover it. I’m not sure why you would want to do this, but whatever I don’t judge if that’s your thing.
  • "Little skewers" is what the Greeks called these tall pointy things the Egyptians liked to hew out of granite in one piece and the Romans liked to steal and put in their chariot-racing stadia. Greeks liked taking the piss. Little Skewers in ancient Greek are obelisks...
  • First beautiful surprising work on the way to Trevi fountain !
  • One of the thirteen obelisks in Rome. It is part of the Dioscuri Fountain. It was done in Egypt with granite from "Assuan". It is located in piazza del Quirinale. It has passed several places before this final one. Recently on April it was illuminated on blue to indicate Autism remembrance day.
  • Amazing view on downtown Rome. A must see even though the palace itself is closed to the public and well guarded.
