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.

The area is a magnet for visitors, with high end shopping streets nearby, the via dei Condotti being full of designers shops of well known brand labels. The image made famous by Gregory Peck and Audrey Hepburn of the honey coloured steps with the church in the background is hard to recreate as numerous people throng the steps and have... More

Terrific roof top bar at top of the steps or on a sunny day just lounge on the steps. Great view from the top it's a place to take pictures.

There were reports that the Spanish Steps would be closed during our trip for renovations. However, when we arrived there, it was not closed. I was able to enjoy the 400 steps and sit on them to relax a while. It was interesting to see how many people were doing the same thing. A definite place to visit.

Full of life, full of colour. The atmosphere is fantastic, you can walk upstairs 3 levels until the top where you get nice landscape of the city and the domes. Next to the piazza you have plenty of stores, expensive, but always you can look...

Walked from the treni fountain to the steps. Beauty. Although extremely crowded but try to see once. Climb to the top looks amazing.

We visited the Spanish Steps during the day and then one evening and even once just before midnight. Frankly it was most impressive at night. No crowds and much easier to appreciate every detail. Fontana della Barcaccia was beautifully lit up. The twin bell towers of Trinita dei Monti also stunning. Apparently the steps were added later (17th century) to... 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.
