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.

How does one review of flight of stairs? It's the famous Spanish steps in Rome, popular among tourist. So popular that it's now forbidden to sit down. There are guards in yellow vests whistling at people who dare to sit. However, you can still take photos while standing. Great view over the rooftops of Rome from the top of the stairs.
Too much hyped..... More of fame, but its like any other Square in ROME. In fact the other squares are more open, one can sit and eat, mingle and chit chat. But sitting NOT allowed on these steps, nor there is any alternate sitting place provided nearby. There are around 200 steps to climb and then there is Church after climbing these many steps. Thr church is as peaceful as any other church, it was informed that this church is built by French in their style.
Beautiful place in a really nice part of Rome. It was extremely hot and there was very limited places to sit. There was a water fountain that you can fill up your water bottles was really helped. Stunning views and architecture.
What can you say, it is a tremendous flight of stairs. The view from the top is breathe taking and the view up from the bottom is jaw dropping. If the stairs are intimidating, then to the left around a couple of shops, there is a metro station. It had a lift that gets you to the top. Good to know if you are physically challenged.
Very pretty. Good photo place. The cops don't let you sit down on the steps. Make sure not to take a rose from the illigal street vendor's. They say it's free and are super pushy and will demand money once you take it. You get good at saying no after the 3rd time they ask
