Not surprisingly because it is the office and residence of the President of Italy, it is not the easiest place to visit because it is only open for tourists on Sundays (apart from public holidays) from 8.30 to 12. Entrance costs only €5 and is free if your are under 18 or over 65. Inevitably, as we found out, there... More

Because the Palazzo is the official home of the President of Italy, it is only open to the public on specified Sunday mornings. I arrived 15 mins. before opening and a line had already formed. The cost is 5 Euros. No photography is allowed; however, a lavishly illustrated book in English or Italian is available for 15 Euros. Information cards... More

Last week I got a tour of this political building and was blown away by the history, architecture, and beauty inside of the walls.

It has a lot to offer to locals,as it is a historic landmark of modern Italy.To me,it was a terrace with great morning view of a great city,such as Rome!

Palazzo del Quirinale is the equivalent of the White House. It is the place where the Italian President resides. Visit if you happen to be near the Trevi area as it is close by.

Of interest is the walk there on the way to from Trevi fountain, or thru the tunnel. An ancient Roman hill mainly with public buildings of government. Impressive guards uniforms at the presidential palace.

I only visited the square, which has a beautiful giant sculpture and obelisk that is located outside the palazzo. I did go at sunset and found a little spot that offers up a view of the city, and a tiny Vaticano in the background. That was a pleasant surprise. It's very quiet here as well so you won't find a...

By the time we had got through the gate, then security check and more queuing it was 9.20. I would get there at 8am and only wait half an hour. Once in the palace it is a... More
