Each person keeps a different home, and a president, prime minister, or other person in power is no different. The history of this building and who has occupied it is totally fascinating. It's also massive! The tour only goes through some of the public rooms that are in the palace, but they are beautiful. When I took the tour, it... More

To visit, go to the info point to register first, or you can register online (at least 5 days before your visit if you choose to do it online). The palace's decorations were way over the top. However, because it is being used by the current president of Italy, you are not allowed to take photos of anything inside the... More

We decided to visit the Quirinale after it was finally opened to the public in June this year thanks to the Italian President Mattarella (a brilliant move on his part) and we expected this palazzo to be rich in beauty, but probably with large empty corridors. Instead the place is just filled with beautiful rooms, affreschi, furniture ... it was... More

We were walking past trying to get to somewhere else. Quite an impressive building in a great spot. It seems that there was to be a changing of the guard as there were people everywhere

The Quirinale Palace, located on Quirinal Hill (one of the seven Roman hills), is the residence of the President of Italy. This majestic building would stand out in every ordinary city. But in Rome, with its untold number of priceless historical monuments, the palace is a bit of an also ran. But Quirinal Hill is close to the Trevi Fountain,... More

This is one of the few presidential residences in Rome. It is quite a spectacular and historic building that also houses a state museum. Many tourists flock this area and over-crowd it, ruining the experience.

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.
