Spanish Steps - Piazza di Spagna, Rome: 307 reviews and 498 photos
The Spanish Steps (Scalinata di Spagna in Italian) are a very famous sight in Rome. The Steps, the piazza and church have long provided a gathering place for foreigners.
Built with a legacy from the French in 1725, but named after the Spanish Embassy to the Holy See (which is still located in the piazza), the steps lead to the French church, TrinitÓ dei Monti. In the 18th century the most beautiful women and men of Italy gathered here, waiting to be chosen as an artist's model.
In May each year the steps are decorated with pink azaleas.
lf you can't manage the steps there's a lift to the top outside the Spanish Steps metro station.
Address: Piazza di Spagna
Directions: Everyone in Rome knows where the Spanish Steps are.
