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.

Absolutely gutted to find the steps under renovation when we came here back in July 2016. However, the surrounding area is lovely, lots to do and very busy. A must see when visiting Rome.

It's not as impressive as one would think. It opens out into a beautiful piazza with lots of high end shops and restaurants but otherwise it's not that impressive to behold.

Closer to the Trevi fountain and therefore full of tourists, although unlike the Trevi Fountain they are very poorly sign-posted. When you arrive, ok it's another "sight" to tick off, but compared with others it's fairly forgettable.

Well worth the effort to get up to. Very nice walk back to the City along roads we would never normally travel. All down hill and much better than getting a taxi. Most enjoyable experience.

You must walk to the top, for a quick burst of exercise and for the view. Don't just sit on the Spanish Steps, enjoy them! Great spot for photos!

Visited Jan 20th 2017. Lots of marble steps with some wall features. There us a fountain at the bottom. Good views of the city at the top. But in my opinion over rated in comparison to other landmarks such as the colosseum. The square it is situated in is flanked by expensive shops, the area isn't as nice as the... More

We visited at night, along with half of all the tourists in Rome. It was very busy and lots of street vendors trying to sell you selfie sticks or some rubbish. We grabbed an ice cream sat down and watched the world Ginny for 10 minutes. Not much else to do

We stopped during the day to observe for a little while. Crowded area. Nice for people watching. Did not climb the steps.

Very popular place but overrated in my opinion! Too crowded to really experience the magnitude of the place!

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.
