The Spanish Steps are located in Piazza di Spagna where the boat shaped fountain of the Barcaccia stands. The steps have been a meeting place for young Romans and tourists for centuries. It is a great place to visit in the cool of the evening, just sit on the steps and watch the world go by. Very often entertainment is provided, however it is not really needed as there is always something to watch , whether it be the flower seller approaching tourists or beautiful young Romans hoping to be noticed.
There are many restaurants nearby which can cater for all tastes and budgets. Via Condotti, one of Rome's most elegant and expensive shopping streets runs off the piazza towards Via del Corso.

Address: Piazza di Spagna,
Directions: Very close to the Spgna Metro rail station
