Create an itinerary including Spanish Steps
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.

  • This is one of the must-see stops when visiting Rome. Be careful with pickpockets and ruses to try to take your wallets/phones. Snap some photos and move along.

  • The steps are beautiful and a must do. However, the flower carrying gypsies are outright rude and will get in your face. They do not always take No for an answer and will continue to shove flowers.....  more

  • What a beautiful vibes here! 😊 Real sparkling Italian atmosphere. That many young people who gather here and give a special energy to the place. I just loved sitting here and enjoying this atmosphere. Last but not least, the part behind the stairs is also beautiful 😍 If you are here, you should buy a cup of coffee and sit down on this stairs and just enjoy every moment 😊
  • Its not allowed to sit down there!
