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.

Had to see this, but in truth you couldn't see much as the steps were covered with people. The shopping in the area is extensive if very expensive.

Our visit to Rome would be incomplete without visiting Spanish Steps. The multi level view areas are topped by the last level where the French style cathedral is located . Like most of the churches and or cathedrals this one is immaculately maintained and has very memorable frescos on the walls and ceilings .

This was a little disappointing, thought it would be more than it was, there was only a few steps, an a perthetic fountain, but when in Rome you have to visit all these things.

We climbed the famous Spanish Steps leading to the Trinita dei Monti church to admire the piazza and Bermini's ship shaped fountain from above. While we were here the steps were under renovations which took away from it all. The views from atop the steps were worth the climb. The area around here is surrounded by many boutiques and offers...

The Spanish Steps and Church at the top near Spagna Station is a must visit. The steps are crowded with tourists and locals enjoying company and pictures selfies. There is a lot to do and see in this area so plan on adequate time to relax and rest.

Metro to the Spanish Steps. In the movie "Roman Holiday," Joe runs into Princess Ann at the Spanish steps. At 138 steps, it is the widest staircase in Europe. Sit, enjoy and people watch. Then walk to Via del Corso, Rome's Rodeo Drive.

There are a few cafes around so you can grab one and sit on the steps and relax a bit after a long day of walking ... that is what I did. At the top of the steps you will find the Villa de Medici and the parco dei Daini, which are really beautiful :)

It is a great place to visit and with the Christmas lights on it is like in fairy tales. The only thing that is destroing it are the street smuglers. Insitrnt and cheaters and trying waiting to steal. The thing from the stories are also the carabinieri. The thieves are doing their trade in front of them. Pai attention not... More

More beautiful than I remembered, it worths climbing the steps and stroll in the neighborhood above, as well as, down the piazza, beuatiful window shops, nice place for a coffe brake, although I wouldn't miss Cafe Greco further down in Condotti st.

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.
