  • As usually happens by accompanying friends came in from outside, I have had the opportunity to visit for the first time the Quirinale Palace. I was very satisfied from this visit because the total impression was unexpected. The beauty and history that transpires from the walls and ceilings of the halls and galleries far exceeds anything I had seen in my travels abroad. The mansion has a long history: seat of the popes, then of the Savoy until being the representative office of the Republic of Italy and of its President. What is most striking is the close proximity to the Italian history, a special mention goes to the halls of history where a historic welcomes visitors and shows and explains the letters of King Victor Emmanuel III and Benito Mussolini correct ones in blue and red as the origin of master led him to do, the results of the referendum of 1946 and photos of past rulers. At the entrance of dear undercover Cuirassiers welcome visitors, very prepared guides accompany the groups and anywhere you see the security that follows you and controls without being in your face but what remains is the feeling of having seen something of yours because it is a part of your country and in your home.

  • Finally we were able to visit the Quirinale. Thanks to the Touring we had the pleasure to appreciate the treasures found in the building. Laudable initiative, thank you President.

  • 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
