The Spanish Steps is a set of long and winding staircase that is located at the foot of the Piazza Trinità dei Monti. These steps are in close proximity to the Piazza di Spagna and people can reach the Trinità dei Monti church upon climbing the entirety of the staircase.
This structure consists of one hundred and thirty five steps and was constructed between 1723 and 1725. The original aim of the staircase was to link the Bourbon Spanish Embassy to the aforementioned church which was at that time patronized by the Bourbon Kings.
These stairs have been prominently featured in media; especially in films such as Roman Holiday, The Roman Spring of Mrs. Stone and others in addition to being referenced to in numerous popular songs. Today, these steps remain crowded most of the time with people soaking in the architecture and heritage. Visit Italy Itinerary 10 Days for an unforgettable Italy travel experience.

Amazing view and nice that the cops don't allow people to eat on the steps anymore. It was a kind of open air restaurant up to a couple of years ago, resulting in garbage on all the steps of this super monument for the city. Now it is a way better. Good job!
Enjoyed the history of the Spanish step. Plenty of people both local and tourist that makes the environment vibrant. We went there a few times and they had shows and music bands playing for the public. Great place to also have coffee or tea whilst enjoying the architecture.
Very cool place... Not too crowded either. I recommend going from the steps up to the park on the hill i believe was called Villa Bourgeois. If you time it right you can get incredible seats to watch the sunset over the Vatican...😎👉
It's a good tourist attraction, but to be honest, by Rome standards there are better and less crowded places to visit. However, the bar at the top of the steps is a lovely place to have a drink. For that reason, it's worth visiting. The plaza at the bottom is too crowded and not worth it.
My favourite piazza in Rome. Also spectacular surrounding area. This is the true spirit of Rome. Please be prepared to spend time and enjoy the area. Get lost in the neighborhood. Visit the Trinita and if you have time also the French Academy. Enjoy any time -- especially in the evening.
