  • The Presidential Palace oldest in the world. Just this information to understand the richness and elegance of this building that has seen alternating popes, Kings and Presidents of the Republic. Totally recommended, reservations are required for the complete tour (mansion, gardens and salone delle carrozze) at a price of €10.00 per person.

  • From members of the Touring Club we explored the Quirinal Palace in an extremely interesting and unusual, although nearly full (some important halls were closed for maintenance); though the goodies more displayed by most promising "Ciceroni", themselves active members with the task of "open for you" compensated for all. Given the dynamic nature of the site is to recommend the repeat the visit after some time to discover more corners and secrets of this wonderful site.

  • 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.
