Spanish Steps - Review
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
The Spanish Steps are amazing in Rome. We woke up early to get there before you couldn't actually see the steps. I'd say it was around 7:30-8 when we were there. The morning light was pretty awesome on the steps and at the top, you had a good view of the sun rising over many of the buildings. Part of the reason it was suggested to us that we go early is because of the huge tourist crowds late in the day.
Wonderful place to sit and laze around. Crowded but picturesque. Not to mention the Roman Holiday association. Walk down the small bylanes close to the Spanish Steps and you will find really good street musicians if you are lucky. Also try to find the easy to miss house where young poet John Keats died near the steps. A plaque marks the house. Its on the left, if you walk down the steps from the top.
Stunning if you catch the sunset on a clear day, as the golden rays leave the building looking like something from another time! Only battle is the crowd but such is expected. Great location to access various other bits and bobs e.g. transport links, restaurants, tourist spots/sites
Amazing place. Great for Gelato 🇮🇹 especially when you get it down your shirt. Nice to relax at the fountain and people watch. Good if you like designer shopping.
The reviews here said it was a little secret gem and great to people watch. But if you prefer somewhere quiet and peaceful this is not the place. Great view from top, nice to swing by en route to somewhere else. Maybe have a perch and a gelato. But otherwise they're just steps with a cool fountain at the bottom.
