This Palazzo has been on our bucket list for years. However, the wonderful Catholic hierarchy makes it almost impossible to visit. They use every delay tactic in the book. We tried to visit it on our last 3 trips to Rome; with no avail. So,...More
This attraction was not on our list, but we totally enjoyed Leonardo Da Vinci "Le Grandi Macchine" in Rome. It is an interactive Exhibit of his blueprints, inventions and creations. His creative mind was far advanced for his time in history. The exhibit has examples...More
We stumbled upon this by shear accident when trying to avoid a very crowded Corso Vittorio Emanuele and only really wondered around the courtyard which was almost devoid of people. The only people there other than us were a couple of artist who where sat...More
Location for an high vatican tribunal, it has interesting masterpieces suce as the "Sala dei 100 giorni" (Hall of the 100 days), with wall paintings made by Vasari in just 100 days and the Salviati chapel, a treasure of the Manieristic style. To be seen...More
This is a large exhibition of three dimensional models of Da Vinci's inventions and drawings of other ideas for inventions. If you're an engineer, an architect, or someone just interested in how things work you will be fascinated by this man's mind. It's an hour...More
We didn't find this exhibit of the machines of Leonardo da Vinci all that interesting. It was described as being very interactive, but basically that involved a few basic wooden models where you would turn a wheel or a gear. It did not hold our...More
Built for the Cardinal Raffaele Riario at the beginning of the16th century, this magnificent work of Donato Bramante was the first new palace in the Renaissance style. The palace was immediately occupied by the Pope Leo X and became the Papal Chancellery (Cancelleria).
I cannot say I saw any of the building except for the museum but it was AMAZING! My children ages 8-15 really enjoyed it (they do like science, etc). Lots of hands-on and great explanations in English (descriptions on the wall, not verbal) from art...More
Two things motivated my visit here:
1) It is a superb example of Renaissance architecture well preserved by the Vatican for several Vatican functions. It has the legal status under the Lateran Treaty of being it Italy though part of the Holy See- with full...More
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.

Are you asking about a tour of the Palazzo della Cancelleria (which you make arrangements thru the Vatican) or about seeing the Leonardo da Vinci exhibition in the Palazzo? They are two different things. You would have to contact the museum about discounts for the exhibition. Most museums in Rome do offer a discount or free admission to disabled persons. I know the exhibition offers a senior discount. We toured the Palazzo and it was a set price. I hope this helps. Safe travels - enjoy my beloved Rome!
