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.

A great place to stop by. It is just many steps with a lot of tourists. Great view from the top. A must visit when youre in Rome.

This area is so popular that people get married and take pictures here. It is very crowded so you may not find a seat at people stay here for a while. Surrounding the area are many upscale shops so after pictures, you can go shopping.

This was nice and I guess you have to go, but is just a bunch of steps. They were very crowded, walked up walked down. I leave it to you but it would not be on my top places to visit.

We accessed this from the top, which gave views all over the City, but the height was such that I was glad we didn't do so from the bottom. Could be a romantic place, were it not for the crowds of tourists and the vendors offering water, selfie sticks, stupid novelty gel blobs and roses.

I always thought it unusual that they are called Spanish steps yet they're in Rome but it makes sense once you discover the history of the name. We had an idea that this was a central location in Rome so we stayed in a hotel just 10 minutes away and it was just as well. This is certainly the hub... More

It was crazy-crowded midday when I visited in March. There were selfie-stick salesmen everywhere, along with the flower and bracelet vendors. They tried to give us flowers and put bracelets on us, but we refused. If you let them, they'll demand money from you. It's an irritating thing to deal with, and coupled with the throngs of tourists, I didn't... More

If you've never seen Roman Holiday by now. Perhaps you should before you even go to Rome. Find out which steps.....is it 2nd or 3rd stone she sat on the steps in the film? Sit on it and do a hello~!

The spanish steps are surrounded by shops like gucci, prada, etc, it was lovely to walk around the shops and check out all the new lines, there are also many restaurants to choose from around the steps. The steps themselves are impressive, i went in feb and it was packed with people, but not enough so you didn't have space,... More

Staying in Campo Marzio

Neighbourhood Profile
Campo Marzio
From its original role as ancient army training fields to its present-day identity as one of the city’s most desirable neighbourhoods, the Campo Marzio is the best place to get lost in Rome. Gorgeous Renaissance and Baroque palazzos line the streets, and are filled with enticing boutiques and food shops. By day, Rome’s best-dressed denizens criss-cross its streets in a fashionable parade of errands, occasionally pausing to look fabulous in gorgeous piazzas like San Lorenzo in Lucina. Campo Marzio can be a bit of a sleeper after aperitivi hour (21:00), so visit by day and experience the pulse of daytime Rome.
