What a treat – the palace was open for a free tour on the Sunday that we were in Rome. It is the official residence of the President of the Italian Republic. The palace sits on the Quirinal Hill, the tallest of the Seven Hills of Rome. It has been occupied by 30 popes, 4 kings and 11 presidents of... More

Went there the 6th of August. From the outside it looks good. Guards told us that it is closed the whole month of August. Too bad we didn't get to see the inside

The palace from the outside may look a regular place in Rome but it is quite intersting from the inside. In addition, you can get a nice view of the city from the square.

We had a wonderful time touring the exterior of this facility. Though it was a hot day, we did enjoy it. Wear good comfortable shoes as there is a lot of walking around Rome to see all the amazing sights that this city has to offer.

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

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.
