  • The building was built as the residence of Pope Gregory 13 summer of 1583; currently used as Italy Republic presidential palace. Also, another Chigi is the Prime Minister's Office. State President and Prime Minister are both present to Italy is a strange feeling to Japan-bred from seen physical buildings, but it's a rare thing in the non-experience.

  • Guided tour for the service offered by coopculture. The complete tour (there is a second shorter) takes about 2 and a half hours and provides a general smattering of Palace, gardens, warehouses. The building is huge so it's impossible to see everything. Really interesting also the historic interlude with dedicated guide.

  • An absolutely massive house for the president of Italy. The building itself is kind of bland but the size of it is astounding. If you are in the area it is worth taking a look at, but not an absolute must see.
  • A beautiful square and an interesting place to visit while walking around in Rome.
  • Not much to talk about the place. The sunset there is supposed to be great
  • also nice to sit on the stairs and take a break!
  • The library of Queen Margaret is absolutely great. Accompanied on the visit by-trained guides and never left alone.

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.
