  • I've been in this (talk of Palace is an understatement) at a concert, all precious and immense, the second largest among the presidential residences with more than 100,000 square meters of beautiful decorated monumental staircases, halls, a beautiful garden. Worth visiting.

  • The Palace is located in the historical centre just above the Trevi Fountain. Bella is the large square outside, quiet and beautiful especially at night. The façade facing the square is impressive and austere and not portends the "beauties". In fact the building was, at the time, the residence of popes, Kings, and is now the residence of the Presidents of the Republic. they were so equipped beautiful surroundings to receive the powerful around the world. The tour can be booked on the internet and consists of 2 routes with different durations. It's exciting to see environments that can be seen on television: the study of stained glass (one of the two studies of the President) the Hall of mirrors, ballroom etc. There is the possibility to see the indoor gardens, very beautiful, they strolled the various heads of State.

  • The Place of the Quirinale is oddly tucked away from the tourist routes (we went there at night around 9 pm and there was no one) but it's worth to be seen for its huge Obelisk which comes from the mausoleum of Augustus and its beautiful Fountain beautifully lit in the dark. But it's also to admire the Palace of the Quirinale, one of the largest in Europe by area... And he saw the beautiful world... first summer residence of the popes, Napoleon wanted to be his place of residence in Rome but could never live there and now it is the Palace of the president of the Italian Republic. This Palace also has wonderful gardens.

  • 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
