This astonishing Palace is located in the centre of Ariccia's main place. The external façade of this building looks quite linear, even if magnificent, but the internal rooms are really impressive. Thanks to our guide, a very skilled guy, we got a lot of information about the Chigi's dinasty and the complicated history of their summer residence. Many pieces of furniture are original and contribute to recreate the picturesque atmosphere of the seventeenth century. All is well conserved inside: the paintings, the sculptures, the special wall paper, the furniture (including a wardrobe with original clothes, beds, bedside tables, ancient games, a small pharmacy and so on). Do not forget that the Italian film director Luchino Visconti decided to set here his masterpiece "Il Gattopardo (The Leopard)". Let alone the adjacent grove. I assure you this Palace is really worth a visit!
