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.

I struggled to appreciate this part of Rome, and just didn't get the joy of sitting on a flight of steps. There are surely better places to sit in Rome that have much better views. Beware too of the gelato shop just along from the bottom of the steps. We paid 2 and a half Euros for an ice cream... More

The steps and the fountain at the bottom are a lovely place to sit and rest take the surroundings in and have lunch. Also if you climb to the top and turn left walk 2-300 metres up the hill to a place called pinco you get a fantastic view over Rome. You can make see most of the places your... More

Take the metro to Piaza di Spagna. Very pretty; interesting history. Not too busy for pics or climbing stairs, which I did not do. Last day of trip and was exhausted. Fountain at the base is gorgeous.

Great view of Trivi fountain - stop and take a moment to reflect sitting on the steps and seeing breath before ascending to the top. Lovely views across Rome once at the top.

Great place to sit and people watch with a gelato. Amazing view from the top. Can feel a bit crowded at times though. Annoying being hassled by the selfie stick seller men and the guys selling roses.

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.
