About Spanish Steps, Rome
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.

Spanish Steps, Rome Reviews - Write a Review
Bustling plaza with historic steps up to a Church in the heart of Rome. There is a mix of street food, restaurants, and shopping at the bottom. Great place to people watch and enjoy a night out. We started at the bottom and walked up - 137 steps. At the top there are views out over a portion of Rome.
Something you do because you can't visit this city without doing it. They are just steps so don't expect anything over the top! Atmosphere is busy and very crowded. If all of the above aren't your cup of tea, the don't waste your time! If they are though, it's worth going to read about the history and enjoy the atmosphere.
Great view of the shopping plaza and church. The steps aren't hard to do at all. Must take pictures at the top and bottom. Great views from both perspectives. Watch out for people trying to hand you things they will ask for money from you. Like roses etc.
My stay was several meters from the Piazza di Spagna. This was 500 meters from the bottom of the Piazza where the Spanish Steps are. I walked pass these steps every time to get to the metro station. I took a couple of pictures at night. I liked it, looked really good during the evening. AW
It's one of the squares which you shouldn't miss. In my opinion it is heart of Rome. The photos which I am posting are from the very early morning. In other times of the day the square is always full of people. I highly recommend you to go up to the scales and watch the sunset..
