This palazzo has just been fully opened ( within the last few weeks) to the public by the incumbent president of Italy, Sergio Mattarella who wisely wishes to allow ALL Italians + to see his magnificent offices and palace ( some parts have always been open but this tour includes other sections of the palace.) For a small fee you... More

I rented an apartment in Via Della Consulta this time, and I was literally 200m from the palace. Nice place to go to at sunset and see the auburn sky, and sit and relax and enjoy the grandeur of the palace and the Supreme Court on the right hand side of the square. Its the complexities of modern cities these... More

As you can see from the vast majority of the reviews, the entry shall read, 'Piazza del Quirinale' (the square) and not Palazzo del Quirinale (the palace), for most of the people visiting Rome and Romans alike don't get to tour the inside of the Palazzo (now the official residence of the President of the Italian Republic, as it has...

As we walked the steps up to the plaza we were thinking, "nope, I don't think so". Correct. We did see men in uniforms with weapons for no visible reason and a huge open space with a few really beautiful statues. Lucky us!

On our way to visit the Matisse exhibition in the building on the other of the square, we passed in front of the Quirinal Palace. We saw police security and learnt it was the presidential palace. Without the police, we would not have found anything specially interesting from outside in this building.

We love Rome and after five lengthy stays always find new treasures. This is the counter part to our White House and only open to the public on Sunday's. Amazing place and magnificent art. Put it on your list.

Staying in Trevi

Neighborhood Profile
Trevi
A non-stop photo and souvenir opportunity, Trevi is all about action. From early morning through the wee hours, the piazza surrounding Trevi Fountain hosts a never-ending flow of tourists hoping to make a wish or take a selfie. Clever restaurants, charming gelaterias, uncanny bars, kitsch shops, and a range of hotels make up the local landscape. Beneath the bustle are the remains of an ancient neighborhood that you can visit by heading over to a repertoire cinema and asking for a peek underground. There is something for everyone, but if peace and quiet are what you seek, plan to visit in the early morning hours.
