  • We visited the Palazzo del Quirinale by booking the artistic, thematic and institutional, that long lasting two and a half hours. It is absolutely not to be missed, because it is a very interesting journey between past and present and the big story. Excellent volunteer guides of the Touring Club Italian, who gave precise explanations and appreciated.

  • Booked the visit quite by accident: incredible experience. Really fascinating and you can't miss it. Also at no cost. Only problem is the online reservation must be made at least 5 days before. Another aspect to be considered timely. Even 10 minutes after the scheduled appointment time and miss the place. Guided tour, very pleasant. A surprise to be able to cross those thresholds and those doors I had only seen on television! Not to mention the original documents that I studied in the history books! Experience to remember forever and to be recommended to all Italians! Thanks to Mattarella and his 11 predecessors.

  • The Quirinal Presidential Palace is the largest in the world per square meter, a real spectacle and an assortment of various architectures that among them blend very well together. I worked for a full year within this building and I must say that it will always remain one of the best experiences of my life.

  • 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
