Located in the heart of Rome, this vibrant and elegant square is surrounded by 18th-century buildings augmented by the colorful flowers that adorn the Spanish Steps. The elegant steps by Francesco de Sanctis (1723-1726) consist of twelve flights of varying width, which descend to the scenic Franciscan Church of Trinita dei Monti.

Steps were buzzing with people posing and enjoying the sunshine. Great view from the top. Can understand why it is a popular hangout for the youth of Rome!

Well, there were a lot of steps and they were closed for a refit when we were. We asked where they were and it appears we were standing in front of them. Good shopping though around the plaza. Very busy area though.

Just sat on the steps with my wife enjoying the sunshine and people watching. Beautiful place to spend an hour or so just relaxing. Watching the "Ice cream" was worth a visit in itself - hilarious watching them close in on the tourists unwittingly eating their ice cream on the Steps!! Must see visit.

Such a wonderful place to watch the world go by, either by day or by night. Avoid tour groups between 10am - 3pm. Great place to window shop.

A crowded area steeped in history with large portions of craft going back thousands of years very relevant here. The steps can be a descent though id suggest breaking at times, sitting and just looking around for great views. Buy a cup of coffee and sit without rush. A unique visit

After the renovation from 2017 you can enjoy the steps and Tninita de I Monti and the sommet of the steps. People coming from all over the world meeting like bees , it s fantastic. Also the view from the upper side is amazing especially in the morning when the sun is shining.

A must see place to visit in Rome, it is an absolutely fantastic place to be with outstanding architecture and design. For the ladies and gentlemen that like to shop at the Base of the steps is the area with all the designer shops, Versace, Tiffany & Co, Prada, Gucci , Fendi and many more to empty your bank account...

Do not forget your camera. These are called the Spanish Steps because they connected the Bourbon Spanish Embassy, and the Trinità dei Monti Church, at the top. There are 135 steps, so it's easiest to go down them. As you move down the Steps, look for John Keats house on your left. It is cream-colored. The Steps are also known... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
