About
Located in the heart of Rome, this vibrant and elegant square is surrounded by 18th-century buildings augmented by the colorful flowers that adorn the Spanish Steps. The elegant steps by Francesco de Sanctis (1723-1726) consist of twelve flights of varying width, which descend to the scenic Franciscan Church of Trinita dei Monti.

Another bucket list item checked off in June. There are a lot of steps but the view is spectacular. At the bottom is a fountain where you can refill you water bottle.

The famous Spanish Steps are one of Rome's main attraction, which means they are ALWAYS busy.
My best advise is to climb the steps in the late afternoon, as to avoid Rome's unbearable heat.

My favourite place in Rome.

You can reach it from down or up, but you would enjoy more the route from Villa Medici going the steps down, enjoying gradually the beauty till you get down and see the famous view of the stairs. The best things in Rome are free.

Decorated in the Roman Baroque style, the stairs hold great beauty, history, and culture. It was built in order to link the Bourbon Spanish Embassy, and the Trinità dei Monti church, both located above — to the Holy See and Spanish Square below.

With all the amazing and beautiful things to see in Rome, I am surprised this is even an option. I cannot see any historical merit, they are steps built to link the Spanish Embassy and the Spanish Embassy. Over crowded and over hyped in my opinion. But please make your own judgement

We visited the Spanish Steps and it is a pretty place to see. Mu husband walked to the very top while I only went half way. There were lots and lots of people and some were sitting on the steps. However, someone came by and told them they had to move. I am glad he did because those people were causing traffic jams and possible cause an accident. We did not spend a whole lot of time here. It is pretty but once you see it, you do not need to come back. Be careful on this touristic attractions because there may be someone trying to get to you. Someone tried to wrap something on my husband's hand. Luckily he was able to quickly react and moved his hand away.

This location is highly sought after by tourists. You have to pick the right time to visit as you will find loads of people milling around. We were very lucky that we were able to walk around and miss sone of the crowds. Best bits of advice I could give is to look at the CCTV camera footage before going and then your able to pick your time.

At the bottom of the steps your able to see some brilliant shops which are all premium, this then enables you to walk to some of the best bakeries. The top of the steps is the metro which helps you get into whichever part of Rome you want.

All the streets around the top of the steps have some great restaurants too.

The stairs themselves are a sight to behold and if you like to mill about with other tourists, this is the place to be. The local law enforcement community is rather heavily represented here, though their main job seems to be shooing folks of the railings as well as preventing people from enjoying their lunches on the stairs. Be that as it may, surely this keeps the riff-raff away and gives every lusting soul a chance to get their very own picture of a loved one on the white marble stairway, which is kind of nice and wholesome in a slightly totalitarian way.
On a different note though, the area between the stairs and the Piazza del Popolo offers the best shopping in the city centre. Here you can find everything from the cheap Swedish H&M store to the high end Italian D&G and even small designer boutiques catering to the most exquisite of needs.

There’s nothing special to see. Is just a landmark where the Spanish embassy was at Piazza Spagna. You just go up the steps and enjoyed the view. The water from the fountain at the bottom of the steps is potable. Touristic and crowded. Nice but One and done.
