Scuderie del Quirinale

Scuderie del Quirinale
  • Panoramic route

The papal stables on the Quirinal Hill provide a venue for major temporary exhibitions. The Scuderie stands next to the Colonna Gardens and on top of the archeological remains of the great Roman Temple of Serapide – some of which are still visible.

The building covers approximately 3000 square meters, over several floors. Wide-open spaces on the second and third floors house the exhibitions. A cafeteria is situated on the mezzanine level and a bookstore, a gift shop and special areas dedicated to exhibition-related initiatives are all on the ground floor. 

And then, what a view! 180° of beauty from the highest of Rome’s Seven Hills. The great window, designed by Gae Aulenti as part of an overall restoration of the Scuderie del Quirinale, is one of the site's main attractions.
