Quirinale Tips (4)

Palace of popes, kings and president

Favorite thing Quirinale is the residence of the president of the republic. Finally from June 2015, with this new president, it's possible to visit this wonderful palace. I went when I was 10 years old with the school to meet the president and I still remembered how impressive that palace was. You can only visit the palace with guided tours of no more than 30 people, so you need to book way in advance, at least if you want to tale the longer tour. Infact there are two tours: one 1 hour and half long and the other one 2 hours and half and it includes also the gardens, few more rooms and the coaches collection. I tried to book the longer visit one month before but it was already sold out so I used my blogger pass saying I wanted to write about it at VT and I got my press credit. In the past the palce hosted popes first and then royal family. You can book your visit here

Piazza del Quirinale

Favorite thing Piazza del Quirinale is situated on the Quirinal hill, which is the tallest of the seven hills of Rome. Palazzo Chigi dominates the whole square, today it is the official residence of the president of Italian Republic, but it used to housed thirty popes, four kings and nowadays eleven presidents.
Palazzo Chigi was built in 1583 by Pope Gergory XII as a papal summer residence. When Rome became the capital of the new Kingdom of Italy in 8171, the palace became the official royal residence. The monarchy was abolished in 1946 and since that time it is the official residence and workplace for the presidents of the Italian Republic.

Fondest memory On the left side of the Palazzo Chigi is situated Palazzo della Consulta, which is the seat of the Italian Constitutional Court. The palace was designed by Ferdinando Fuga in 1732.
Opposite of the Palazzo Chigi stands Fontana dei Dioscuri Castor e Pollux, work of Antinori.5

Quirinale

Fondest memory If you happen to be at the Quirinale at around 3:00 in the afternoon, you will see the changing of the guard in the piazza, which has some awesome sculptures. This is the official residence of the president of Italy. Keep in mind that the Quirinal Hill is the highest in Rome, so you have a steep climb, especially if you are starting out from Via Nazionale!( okay, not exactly a fond memory!)

Quirinale

Favorite thing Quirinale: the Official Residence of the President of the Republic. Italian, European and presidential flag are fluttering on the tower of the Quirinale and the presidential one flutters only when the President is present :)
