Corner View: "A room with a view"


The former papal stables at the Quirinale, now redesigned, houses contemporary art exhibits, all interesting and worth the ticket and the long queues. The same for the unique view: From the caffetteria, the Piazza del Quirinale, from the window at the stairs, Rome in all its beauty Saint Peter's cupola in the background.
Yes Rome can be a chaotic city; but after more than thirty years living near it, I still am fascinated.

Mysterious and surprising view of Rome, I like it.
We can imagine this wonderful city without seeing anything! Great :)

oh, i think i understand and feel your fascination. i have been in rome once, but i was just 17. still, feels like yesterday, really.

the rain doesn't make the view worse, by no degree, perhaps even more dramatic!
cheers!
