  • Beautiful edifice of presidential residence. On another occasion I visited some interior rooms and are really nice. On this occasion I had access to the gardens and I was speechless: a paradise in the heart of Rome.

  • I highly recommend a visit to the Quirinale Palace. You will discover the hidden treasures excellently illustrated by valid and friendly volunteers and escorted, among other salt from a Cuirassier. More than one and a half hour guided tour of the modest sum of £ 1 and 50! Just book before

  • I recommend everyone to book a visit to the Quirinal Palace. You can't believe what wonder of salt contains this building. Controls, as you might imagine, I'm very scrupulous and visiting groups are reduced. The timetables are respected, then introduce yourself at the entrance a quarter of an hour before your time. It is accompanied by a guide and a Cuirassier which checks that all is done in the best way. It is strictly forbidden to photograph and should not being smart. There are available for those who want to, lockers for bags, backpacks and jackets. The tour that I chose I lasted a little more than 2 and a half hours, the mansion is immense, also visiting a small part of the garden, the Hall of carriages, the area dedicated to China and also a part dedicated to the story of the birth of our Constitution. You get tired a little bit because there are some lovely staircases to do but worth it. Highly recommended

  • This is a long way up the hill for what is a large but not very impressive Italian version of our White House. We wanted to arrive at 4 PM for the changing of the guard, but we had overestimated the time for the rest of our walking tour and didn't think it would be that impressive, having seen the grand ceremony in Ottawa, Canada. There is a grand statue in front – there are statues everywhere in Rome, it seems – and there is a good view from the balcony of the large open square, but there are better views elsewhere.
  • Nice. Its empty not a lot of people around indeed.
  • A spectacular piazza with grand buildings
  • Quiet and non-touristy, we watched the changing of the guard.
  • worth seeing
