Palazzo del Quirinale

Palazzo Quirinale
  • Panoramic route

Located on top of the highest of the seven hills of Rome, the Quirinale Palace was for just under three centuries the summer residence of the popes prior to becoming in 1870 the palace to the King of Italy and after 1946 the seat of Presidents of the Republic. Visitors are entertained by the changing of the guards on Sundays (at 6 p.m. in the summer and at 4 p.m. during the rest of the year), while a classical music concert in the piazza delights all on New Years Day.
