Spanish Steps, Rome
(3.2/5 based on 13,000+ reviews on the web)
Climb Spanish Steps, the widest staircase in Europe and one of the most majestic urban monuments of the Baroque style. The 136 steps once linked the Spanish Embassy to a Franciscan church that was officially under the patronage of the Bourbon kings of France. An iconic fountain created by artist Gianlorenzo Bernini and his father stands at the foot of the staircase. Designed by architects Francesco de Sanctis and Alessandro Specchi, the staircase and the piazza were built between 1723 and 1725. Using our custom trip planner, Rome attractions like Spanish Steps can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

  • Really? I don't understand why these steps are even a tourist site. Roman Holiday maybe? After all the steps are well, steps. At the top is a small church (Trinità dei Monti) and even the view is non ...  more »

  • Rome is awesome already and we walked all over it with 2 small kids. But the Spanish Steps are a different world all together. You get there and time seems to stand still, people are sitting around talking, relaxing, not in a hurry to get anywhere... That is, until a big thunderstorm comes in and you have to take cover. Can't wait to go back again with the family and retrace our steps.
  • Just famous by the name. Nothing special. you get a top view of that location. Its crowded. But after long walk you can relax there. Just sit and have some rest.
  • A must! The view on Rome from the top of this place is beautiful. If you are a cinema lover you'll recongnize easily so many film scenes shot in this iconic location
  • Nice place to go and sit to chill. but have no idea why the polices there only be so rude to Asian tourists. Doesn't you represent the city?
  • It's a nice place to visit and snap a quick photo, but there's no need to linger. Movies and tv shows make a big deal out of this place, but it's pretty underwhelming compared to the other sites in Rome.
