  • We visited the hill, the piazza and the palace (from outside) in late evening, but nevertheless it was very beautiful. It controls the view over a great part of Rome and the Vatican and one can easily...  more »
  • I had the opportunity to visit the Quirinal Palace after the ceremony of delivery of certificates to new "Bishops of the Republic", one of which is me. This visit, totally unexpected, I was totally stumped. I've never seen anything more beautiful. Enchanting chandeliers, bright space, tapestries and frescoes. Surely, the Quirinal Palace is not one of the main attractions of Rome, but is well worth a visit! Don't miss it!

  • Finally after all this we were able to admire the palazzo del Quirinale the unbelievable price of €1.50!!! For access you must first register online and possibly also have an identity card, so try to anticipate. The staff are very friendly and helpful; the guided tour with volunteer guides very prepared turned out to be one of the best that I could never follow. The beauty of the halls is very rare indeed: externally not suggests the sumptuousness of this historic building that had as its own popes, Kings and Presidents of the Republic. You can admire and visit places and documents that have marked the history of our country, I was deeply moved. I highly recommend it to anyone!

  • I took the guided tour in Italian. You need to book online and pick up the tickets at an office near the Palace. As it's the Presidents residence security is tight and you need to bring your passport. It's definitely worth a look inside the palace and around the gardens.
  • Magnificent, guides prepared very good. If you find yourself in the area it is absolutely worth visiting
  • 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.
  • Not so bad
  • Typical Italian desorganization.I bpught the ticket online as required, went to the office to pick it up. All fine. Ticket wss there awating for me. Got to the palace, gave them the ticket snd my ID cardas my name wasn't on the list I treated as if I was terrorist. I don't understand the need and pleasure in being rude and unpleasant. The old papal parts could not be seen and the ones we passed through we were rushed snd had all the nineteen century Savoy bad bad bad taste stuffed down our throats. The staff REALLY need some training on how to deal with the public- very nineteen century look down on you attitude going on. Totally unengaging.
