About
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.

Of course a place to visit when in Rome, however also a bit overrated. Was there in May 2022. Not a single flower. Just big with a lot of step.
The view from the top is very nice and even nicer from the church a bit higher up.

We visited the Spanish Steps. The climb was a bit much for an old man with poor circulation in the legs, so we did not climb to see the view from above, For us, it was not particularly special. The neighborhood at the foot had a lot going on. It was very crowded.

We had heard so much about the Spanish steps and we only had 24 hours in Rome. My man and I trekked across the city to see them and were...so disappointed. They are just steps really. And very crowded steps. Don't just go to the top tourist spots because it isn't always worth it.

Worth a visit and the steps were not as steep as I thought. Beautiful surrounding and views. Can be quite crowded at times.

The Spanish steps are another of the iconic sights of Rome. It’s a picturesque area for sure, though it’s really busy so any romantic ambience is rather lost. Worth seeing though.

Lovely to see the flowers out on the steps. EXTREMELY busy but a nice place to stop for a gelato and a photo. I would like to more about the history of their origin.

We navigated ourselves through the strets of Rome and ended up at the top of these steps. and am so glad we did as the atmposphere at the top was so peaceful and gave you time to take in the views of the city without having to catch your breath 1st.

The steps are on 2 levels and as you would expect uneven and are probably slippy in the wet weather but as it was a warm spring day when we visited so didn't encounter any problems. As you can imagine they are filled with tourists snapping selfies wit the iconic view in the background.

The base of the stairs is a square where you will find your high end brands of shops like Chanel so if you keep your eyes peeled you may sneek a peek at a celebrity. There is also man array of eateries in the square. I can't comment on the prices but common sense would tell me that they would be a few Euros added on the bill for the view.

We visited in the day but am sure they woul look more impressive at night all lit up.

Go and have a look for yourself and get another tick on your Rome been there done that list you will not be disappointed.

Yes, that’s it. 135 steps up and down. If you go after 0700 good luck getting a good photo. There’s expensive shopping around. Been there, done that.

I'll be honest. In Rome it's a lot of more interesting places. I know that the steps is a "must see" attraction but the number of tourist there take out all the pleasement of be there. Also you can see a hundreds of girls which trying to make a perfect photo of themselfs. :) (remember I was in March, that's not a high season)
