A very nice thing to do if you happen to be in the right place at the right time. Also this happens near the famous Fontana di Trevi so you don't have to go too far or you do two things at one hit:

Rome's Presidential Palace is located on the highest hill of the famous seven hills of Rome. Also very near to the Fontana di Trevi as mentioned above.

First you see a colourful march of soldiers dressed in black, with red stripes in their trousers and black-and-red hats. White "belts" and shoulders complete the nice looking uniform. Then a soldier in green, carrying a flag takes the command and marches in front of the unit and the change of guards take place.

But...it doesn't end here, don't walk away: music lovers get their part now. A military band in green and with caps start to play.

Address: By the Presidential Palace of Rome
