  • Normally we do not review monuments, we make an exception because not everyone knows that President Mattarella has opened the palace to the public that is now a destination for many visitors. The visit is organized by Touring volunteers and led by university students who do the internship at the Quirinale. Well the visit really deserves, we recommend it to everyone!

  • Previously a papal palace, it is now the residence of the President of the Republic. It is a grand building, located in an interesting square. You deserve a visitor.

  • Home of Popes, Kings and now of the President of the Republic the Quirinale Palace deserves to be visited. We chose the two-and-a-half hour guided tour. they look like many but they have flown thanks to the beauty of the rooms visited and the skill of the guides who accompanied us. A unique emotion when at the end of the path we found ourselves in front of one of the copies of our constitution!

  • So quiet ! Sun illuminated ! Large piazza in front of !
  • The Quirinal Palace (known in Italian as the Palazzo del Quirinale or simply Quirinale) is a historic building in Rome, Italy, one of the three current official residences of the President of the Italian Republic, together with Villa Rosebery in Naples and Tenuta di Castelporziano in Rome. It is located on the Quirinal Hill, the highest of the seven hills of Rome in an area colloquially called Monte Cavallo. It has housed thirty Popes, four Kings of Italy and twelve presidents of the Italian Republic. The Quirinal Palace was selected by Napoleon to be his residence par excellence as Emperor. However his permanence never took place because of the French defeat in 1814 and the subsequent European Restoration. The palace extends for an area of 110,500 square metres and is the ninth-largest palace in the world in terms of area.
  • It is a beautiful place with a view of the city and near the most magical fontan - Fontan di Trevi!
  • After taking Spanish steps and viewing the Trevi Fountain you can have best view of Rome here
  • Also was not able to enter. Seems like a lot of guards (real and ceremonial) guarding the entrances, but the plaza was interesting.
