Spanish Steps, Rome

The Spanish Steps are a monumental attraction in Rome.

The Spanish Steps are a monumental attraction in Rome.  They are an immense example of the interesting Roman baroque style of architecture.  They are the connection between Piazza di Spagna and the Trinità dei Monti church at the top.  The stairway consists of 135 steps constructed by architect Francesco de Sanctis between 1723 and 1725.

Often people will sit on the steps while taking a rest, or simply people watching.  It offers great views of the Eternal City.  Specifically, it began as a very popular place for artists and painters to gather.  Thus, it attracted a crowd of wealthy Roman citizens and today all kinds of people gather here.

In an effort to keep the steps clean, food and drinks are banned. The surrounding area has many restaurants, gelato shops, clothing stores, and cafes.  A climb to the top of the stairs is definitely worth it as you will have breathtaking views of the city.  Sitting on the steps will give you a display of classic Roman beauty.
