  • It is building up the stairs of the Spain square, standing in the middle of the junction of the right hand side towards the Church of Trinità dei Monti. The House of the 16th century Mannerist painter and architect Federico Zuccari. Federico Zuccari's who completed the frescoes for the cupola of the Duomo of Florence was left unfinished due to death of Vasari. Gregorian Street facing the side door (decorated face and open mouth piece is on the door) is featured in this building.

  • We paused to admire the façade of this Palace overlooking the via Gregoriana. The three imposing masks, forming one of the highlights of the Palace, they'd probably function to impress and frighten the visitor, who would hesitate to cross the threshold, but would have been much more impressed, by contrast, from Heavenly charm, beginning with the wonderful garden.

  • If you are going to the Spanish steps, worth the detour for a quick photo of the interesting facade of this old palace. Can't really say more than that.  more »

  • That 4th star might be sheer sentimentality, or the lack of a fifth sour grapes. I'd heard of this more or less Mannerist monster house decades ago. The door is a giant face, and the windows are too, big Mannerist monstrous faces! Keen to see it some 13 or so years ago we popped over- it's in the area around the top of the Spanish Steps- and found it was all wrapped up for repairs. Foiled! So a couple years later we went to Rome again, and we headed to Zuccari Palace all a twitter with trepidation. ARRRRRGGHHH! They were still working on it. That's a lot of work. So we waited a decade, just to make sure. Well, there were other reasons, but the important point is this is exactly how it worked out. Once we were there we walked on over, and... Boy, I bet you are on the edge of your seat! Even I, knowing how it all turns out, am trembling in anticipation. And... It was okay! We could see it! It was, you know, nice. I mean, it was complicated. Like if, ignorant, we accidentally came upon it it would have been marvelously delightful. Informed and making three attempts in 13 years it was slightly... less... so. But, since reading this, you would be in the same boat in terms of preparedness, I must say that mainly the doorway is neat, with its gaping mouth housing a wooden door, and there's something charming how they were messing about with this sort of whimsy four or so hundred years ago. But alas, the building itself, though nice, isn't terribly interesting (just the outside. I'm not sure what it would take to get inside), and really it's one of those things where they needed to go all out with their concept for it to be really special. As it is it's just a few fun features on the side of an old building. But I will finally add this: After all those years of repair it is indeed a building in fabulous condition!

Where to stay in Rome

For easy foot access to most of the city's main historical sites, consider staying in Rome's old town center. The area is conveniently placed for public transport, only a walk away from the city's main railway station. Accommodations here span all hotels sectors, from cheap hostels to luxury brand names. To avoid the steep prices and overcrowding of the town center, explore the hotels in the inner suburbs of Rome. They offer comfortable rooms and excellent food at a fraction of the price charged by the centrally located hotel chains. Another affordable option is the area around Vatican, which boasts a good selection of family-owned B&Bs.
