Even though tickets have to be purchased in advance, which made me hesitant at first because I do not like planning too much, it was worth it!! The palace is amazing, definitely worth the visit, yet because it is an official seat of the president...More

Here is the headquarters of the President, but from the square in front of the palace there is an excellent view of Rome. It is especially good to see at night.

Organizing a school trip is not so easy, mainly because when in Rome you would like to visit all sites. It goes without saying that it is impossible. And the students would like to save money... so I decided to go for the Quirinale, which...More

Didn't have time to visit the palace but the square is impressive yet another obelisk and view back across Rome. Saw the changing of the guard sad inditement of the times they are guarded by armed police. If you near the Trevi fountain pop along.

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 neighbourhood that you

Hello there! My boyfriend and I will be visiting Rome in March and wanted to visit the Palace on one of the days we are there. We'll be visiting Villa Borghese, Borghese Gallergy, the Spanish Steps, and Quirinale Palace in that order. Our plane arrives at 10:45AM and we'll probably start sight-seeing around 1 o'clock after grabbing a bite to eat...my question is are we able to visit inside the palace as well as the gardens on our own without scheduling a tour? I'm not exactly sure how long it will take to visit the other sites but I do not want to schedule a tour in case we stay at certain stops longer than expected, and I read on their official website that once a tour is booked that there will be no refunds. Thank you guys in advance. Ciao!
