Another worthy tourist attraction. Close to the Open Bus Stop but also within walking distance from other attraction like Trevi Fountain. We visited in winter (December 2016) so not too crowded but still lots of people. View of Rome from the top is worth climbing the stairs.

The steps were not open the day we visited 😔 it was still beautiful. There was a huge party going on that night for the reopening the next day.

This is not far from the metro stop (one after Trevi heading towards the Vatican) another wonderful aquifer fed fountain at the bottom and wonderful church at the top which of course is what these steps are all about. They are steep and the view from the top of Rome's skyline is brilliant so worth the climb up. You will... More

Tourist attraction that takes up a bit of time. It's worth finding out about the steps from a book or a hop on hop off bus.

The Spanish steps are located at the Piazza di Spagna and they are a tourist magnet. We knew it would be very busy but it was quite insane how many people where there. We climbed the 135 steps and were rewarded with a wonderful view. Once we were lucky enough to find an open space on the actual steps to... More

I visited the steps and took photos as it's the thing to do but don't understand the attraction. I know the history but really they are only steps. I did like the view from the steps however and was pleased with the photos I was able to take.

Loved being at the bottom, for a 76 year old, and after having walking all over Venice, Florence and Rome, I elected not to climb the steps, but was happy to have been there and seen it

It's a very nice atmosphere here, but very busy! It is a good place to visit and worth going out your way for, but you can't spend too long here as there's not much else to do other than look at the view etc - we didn't go in the church at the top because it was very busy. I'd... More

Another "must see" tourist attraction in Rome, not too far to walk from the tourist double decker bust stop. Didn't climb all the steps but just good to look at and take in the atmosphere. Not too busy but I can imagine it to be very busy in high season!

Probably a good place to visit when you go down the steps! The Basilica at the top is incredible and the views of the City are quite breathtaking. Then a stroll down the steps to the Piazza where some of the most famous shops in the world can be found. Great for window shopping, unless you have won the lottery!... 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.
