Owner description: 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.

The place is 15 minutes walking distance from Termini. As it is on heart of city you will many shops in the way.Best time to visit is during evenings, atmosphere around is pretty exciting with many couple sitting on the steps and few people playing music.

Having seen the photos, the Spanish Steps were on the "must see" list. We genuinely could not see the splendour and at the end of the day, they are a set of steps in Rome.

Thought it would be romantic like in the movie but it's crowded beyond belief. Restuarants around are quite expensive and the one l went to charged a 15% service charge. Had gelato at one of the shops.....very good.

Nothing really special about the steps except the fact that you can say you walked the steps and see them in many movies.

Be careful walking on the steps as the front edges have been worn down from so many people walking on them which makes them slightly uneven.

I'm glad we didn't make any special efforts to visit this place. I think it's been over hyped therefore it's extremely busy and full of street sales man and pick pockets. You can spot a pick pocket a mile off. I suggest a fly by visit on route to somewhere else or in between shopping.
