Palazzo del Quirinale

The Palazzo del Quirinale is the official residence of Italy’s head of state, the President of the Italian Republic…..not that we realised this at the time we were walking past, although the police and guards did give us a bit of a clue that this was something official.

From the square outside the palace we also got our first glimpse of St Peter’s Basilica, across the River Tiber in Vatican City, with it’s massive dome rising about the rooftops in the second image below:
