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.

Worth a look on the way to the train station but just a series of steps with a lot of tourists sitting on them.

Yes, seen it, ticked it off and will probably never go back. Worth walking to the top and visiting the church but the steps are crowded and it seems to have lost its bohemian/art character with the crowds and the expensive shopping surrounding it. The...More

If you have spare time and are out strolling through Rome the Spanish Steps are there, is f you miss them we wouldn't say you msssed much. Aside from people watching, which is always interesting, there's not much else to say here.

Visited the Spanish Steps during our stay in Rome. It's a must see on the list of must sees when in Rome, but no, it's nothing special...

Too many the Spanish Steps could be treated like Bill Murray treated the Grand Canyon in National Lampoon's "Vacation." Take the time to sit near the top and just watch people and imagine all of the generations that have done the same thing.

Don't get me wrong, these are worth seeing but more for the general area than the steps themselves. I would definitely not put the steps in the "must see" bracket! When compared with other sights in Rome they just don't quite match up.

There is a road that takes you around the side and depending on the direction you travel from can be much easier. GIRLS REMEMBER TO COVER YOUR ARMS. They won't let you into the church otherwise. Plenty of street vendors that can sell you a...More

I don't know what I had in mind but although the steps are beautiful, I would not go out of my way to see it. The designer shops across the road might also be part of the attraction but if you have limited time, don't...More

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

The Spanish Steps are free, located in the Piazza Di Spagna. It is very picturesque from the top and bottom of the steps, day or night. You can spend 30 minutes or longer taking pictures or simply walk by. There is a church... More
