Fodor's Expert Review Casino dell'Aurora

Repubblica Castle/Palace/Chateau

Set just off the Piazza del Quirinale is the Palazzo Pallavicini-Rospigliosi, and within its grounds you'll find the Casino dell'Aurora, originally built for Cardinal Scipione Borghese. The casino (a summer pavilion) has a fabulous ceiling fresco of Aurora (the personification of the Dawn) painted by Baroque artist Guido Reni—a painting once thought to be the last word in 17th-century style. The casino is only open to the public on the first day of every month, in the morning and afternoon, except January.
