  Spanish Steps
by Blatherwick

It's a good place to people watch and the setting is nice so it is worth going to. The Spanish Steps (Scalinata di Spagna) in Rome ramp a steep slope between the Piazza di Spagna at the base and the church Trinità dei Monti above. The monumental stairway, of 135 steps, was built with French funds in 1721‑1725, linking the Bourbon Spanish embassy to the Holy See, today still located in the piazza below, with the Bourbon French church (its monastery founded in 1495) above.

Address: Piazza di Spagna
Directions: Take the metro to Spagna, or follow the Via del Babuino from the Piazza del Popolo.
