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.

We went early in the morning and it was not too busy and it was possible to see the steps and the Basilica at the top without the crowds. It is worth reading about the history of the steps and the Basilica before you go because it makes it more meaningful.

The Spanish Steps in the Piazza Del Spagna are easily accessible from the Spagna metro station (just follow the crowds from the train). As you exit from the train station you enter the Piazza Del Spagna and can cast your gaze upon a sea of tourists and locals, a multitude of brand name shops, the Fontana Della Baraccia, Via Condotti...

Steps connecting two piazzas. Really nice view of the city from the piazza at the top. Probably would have been better to come wth a guided tour so we could get a sense of the history. high-end shopping (Louis Vuitton, Prada, etc) at the bottom of the steps.

Glad we went as I hadn't seen on previous trips to Rome but have to agree with those who were underwhelmed. Interesting shopping opportunities nearby if not short of cash!

One of the main places to visit in Rome, be careful climbing those steps though, it's tiring lol. Well worth a visit though.

It's a set of steps, seriously that's it. It appears to be a place to hang out rather than a tourist attraction. Visit, walk up, down, avoid the looky looky men just to say you've been.

The steps were very crowded with people sitting on all levels so it is impossible to get a picture like a post card of the steps impact. The view from the top is worth the climb though and the luxury designer shops in the adjacent streets are worth browsing. Given the many other amazing sights in Rome, this is only... 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.
