"Palazzo del Quirinale" Quirinale Hill Tip by Julius_Caesar

Quirinale Hill, Rome: 39 reviews and 72 photos


In the late 16th century the Palazzo del Quirinale became a summer residence for the popes, and it assumed the present form in the 1730s. Following unification of Italy(1870), it became the official residence of the king, then in 1947 of the President of the Republic. From its square you get a splendid view of the city, with St. Peter’s dome in the distance.

Address: Piazza del Quirinale
