I'm not sure if I'd call 24 Sussex drive a regular house. It's value is probably out of the purchasing power of most Canadians, but point taken and agreed with.

Presidential Palace in Athens, rather modest, but designed by the famous architect Ernst Ziller in the late 19th century and is situated next to the national gardens:


You can see the Panathinaic Stadium, home of the first modern Olympics

The Chancellor's digs are much nicer! Beautiful.

Edit:

Sorry, made a mistake. I mean I think the President has the nicer home!

There are no pictures on the internet of our prime ministers house, for his privacy and security. But we know he lives in an ordinary house just like on the picture above.

Palace of Quirinale, Roma



The Quirinal Palace (known in Italian simply as the Quirinale) is the official residence of the President of the Italian Republic on the Quirinal Hill, the tallest of the seven hills of Rome.

The palace was built in 1573 by Pope Gregory XIII as a papal summer residence. It was also used as the location for papal conclaves in 19th century. It served as a papal residence and housed the central offices responsible for the civil government of the Papal States until 1870.

In September, 1870, what was left of the Papal States was overthrown. About five months later, in 1871, Rome became the capital of the new Kingdom of Italy. The palace became the official royal residence of the Kings of Italy, though some monarchs actually lived in a private residence elsewhere.

The monarchy was abolished in 1946 and the Palace became the official residence and workplace for the Presidents of the Italian Republic.

The façade was designed by Domenico Fontana. Its 'Great Chapel' was designed by Carlo Maderno and frescoed by Guido Reni.
Its grounds include a famous set of gardens laid out in the eighteenth century.

Palace of Quirinale, Roma

In the Heart of Rome. A "D"-shaped block with a green heart.

[IMG]http://i41.************/2mdsdhs.jpg[/IMG]

The Main Palace around the Court of Honour.

[IMG]http://i44.************/2s77ryv.jpg[/IMG]

The Manica Lunga, or Long Wing. At the end you can see the Palazzina della Cifra, the private residence of the President. In front of the Manica Lunga you'll find the oval dome of Sant'Andrea al Quirinale, by Gianlorenzo Bernini.

[IMG]http://i42.************/2pqtm3k.jpg[/IMG]

Historical iconography: "The Imperial Ambassador Antonio Giorgio Cusani entering the Quirinale" by Antonio Cioci, 1758 (Castello Sforzesco, Milan)



The italian-style Gardens before the english-style reshaping.



The Paoline Chapel, a posh Music Hall. Inside the Manica Lunga (longest gangway in Europe, 275 m.)



The Annunziata Chapel: dome by Guido Reni. Works by Lanfranco and Annibale Carracci: classicist bolognese painters ruled in Rome in the first half of 17th century.The chapel is by no means an exception.



Interiors again (sorry for the uneven quality of the cropped images).
Some 300 tapestries are displayed along the rooms of Quirinale. Frieze by Berthel Thorvaldsen.

[IMG]http://i43.************/167qq0x.gif[/IMG]

Many interiors come from the former royal residences in Piedmont (this is the Piedmontese Wallpaper Hall) Milan Parma Modena Florence and Naples.

[IMG]http://i41.************/24giw0j.gif[/IMG]

The Quirinal is allowed to visitors Sundays in the morning.

[IMG]http://i39.************/14l1o5k.gif[/IMG]

The Belvedere on top of the Tower: view over Rome (from Vittoriano to San Pietro within these windowpanes). Nice to lodge here, provided you are scheduled to dining with the President.

[IMG]http://i39.************/j60q6d.gif[/IMG]

Few visitors are not flabbergasted inside the Hall of the Corazzieri. Corazzieri (or Armoured Men) are the President's Guards (once they used to be the Royal Guards of course). Technically, they belong to the Carabinieri Corps.
