Walking along the Tiber and standing at the end of Ponte Umberto I, it is hard to miss this incredibly grand building, which begs you to take a closer look. The Supreme Court of Cassation and the Judicial Public Library, is totally over the top. The architect was Guglielmo Calderin, who won a competition to design the judicial complex. Building... More

The whole of Trajan's Forum (pillars stand today) functioned as the "Palace of Justice". The experts say (and it is written) that "The Forum of Trajan was in fact a large palace of justice where law related matters .." were decided. He was one of the 5 good Emperors.

It has beautiful architecture. It can be seen from the Tiber river and from Pont Umbero 1. The appearance of the palace is truly majestic!

The views from the top of the building are not to be missed. The rest of the building is free and beautiful.

Here it is where justice, or 'justice' (depends on the days), is served. Architecturally it may be a mix of way too many styles yet it still is pretty impressive. It is possible to visit the inside of the building for free, you just need to get a visitor pass at the entrance. Also, if you come after 10 and... More

Massive and stunning. We only did the exterior for pictures. It's a beautiful site as you walk to the Vatican along the river.

The seat of the Supreme Court and the Judicial Public Library is an imposing building (170 meters long and 155 meters wide), which locals often call the Palazzaccio (the Bad Palace). It was designed at the end of the 19th century by Guglielmo Calderini, a Perugian architect.

From the outside a absolutely amazing looking building, would like to have a look around on the inside but i'm unsure if you are allowed in as a tourist, and I don't really fancy being summoned to appear there just to get a look at the inside.

It just hits you if you are crossing Tiber by Ponte Umberto I. Though pompous and over decorated, It is an impressive building and for tourists who are unaware neither of its long building history nor of unfortunate choice of the site. Not worth of of detour, but if you happen going past it, it is an interesting landmark.
