We had a tour guide all to ourselves and he was terrific - extremely knowledgeable. I was able to understand his Italian - he spoke very clearly and not too quickly - but someone who does not know any Italian might want to check first to see if an English language tour is available. The rooms are amazing - especially... More

I visited this palace with my family on the 4th of August. I really liked the palace and especially the leather walls, i've never seen them before. The guided tour was very interesting, also thanks to our guide Marco, very prepared and enjoyable. Excellent quality according to the price. The only problem is that the opening hours of the palace... More

The Palazzo Chigi is often overlooked by tourists in Rome and is arguably one which should be on the must do list. Allow time to be consumed into the history as well as the charm of this building - you will not regret.

The palace is quite nice, well worth a visit. We visit the place through a guide tour and the Baroque Museum. However, we opted not to visit the garden. The reception had problems in printing the tickets. Thus, after 5 minutes waiting, & getting annoyed, she allowed to visit the museum. However, the doors of the various rooms were still... More

I'm lucky enough to live in this area of Italy had been here often a few years ago when the children were younger. We always liked it for its setting and simple elegance and lived in feel.

This astonishing Palace is located in the centre of Ariccia's main place. The external façade of this building looks quite linear, even if magnificent, but the internal rooms are really impressive. Thanks to our guide, a very skilled guy, we got a lot of information about the Chigi's dinasty and the complicated history of their summer residence. Many pieces of... More
