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.

Well, everyone should go to the Spanish Steps in Rome. It's just one of those things, along with the Colosseum, that you "just do." However, the nice thing is that despite the crowds, there is plenty of space to find a nice little spot to rest and enjoy the view. Great place to catch your breath and people watch for... More

We started our day here and it was a good choice as it wasn't too crowded at 11am.sitting on the steps is a great way to relax.

I just don't get this one - I'm a sucker for "old Rome" but I just don't see the attraction here - sure it's monumental but it's hemmed in on all sides by more modern buildings- it just doesn't have the space to breathe - I just walked down and walked on

A great place to hang out on a nice day, people watching and resting. Something to note that no food allowed at the Steps. There are signs but not highly visible until the police lady came along to caution us about our gelato cones!

I may have reviewed this much better / higher if it was fully opened up, when we visited it was somewhat partitioned off - not sure for what, I was unable to locate any construction or repair works. If you wonder around and carry on you do get a lovely view from above, the cobbled paths in this vicinity do... More

We weren't overly fussed at this attraction however the open topped Restaurant, to the left at the top, however tourist expensive, did a lovely Pizza and Pinot G. for 18 Euros. We sat in the Sun for a couple of hours while people puffed and panted up and down the marble steps. A female singer good enough for the 'Voice'... More

So easy to find right next door to stagnate metro. We got there early to avoid the masses of tourists. Lovely walk afterwards around the old back streets and ended up by the forum.

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.
