Overview

Palazzo Ruspoli was the residence of a noble Roman family who acquired it in the second half of the 17th Century and still own it. It was built in the second half of the 16th Century, designed by Bartolomeo Ammannati for a Florentine family. On entering the courtyard, you are in a portico of columns with antique sarcophagi under the arches. There is a garden at the back of the courtyard that has now become a cinema. The Palazzo is now the site of photographic, art, and archaeological exhibitions. The magnificent marble staircase with one hundred steps, each hewn from a single piece of stone, is a marvel.
