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.

  • Always crowdy during day and nighttime so I do recommend to be here att sunrise if you want to have it all by yourself together with the lovely morning light of Rome (if the skies are blue).

  • Another place in Rome worth seeing. The charming streets leading to the stairs are full of boutiques of the most eminent fashion houses. You can see that it is a very rich and expensive part of the city. The attraction itself is interesting, very well kept. Clean, despite the large number of tourists. It is worth paying attention to local traders who want to sell small gifts - I advise you not to, waste of money and their stories about the family, copy the sales manual. There is a beautiful view of the old town from the top. I recommend it and I'll be back there again.
  • So it's kind of underwhelming here. Don't get me wrong, it's a cool place, and the architecture is gorgeous, but it's not a place to enjoy being a long time. There are tourists all over everything. You might get hassled for money or trinkets. The best way to visit is to arrive very early or enjoy the church at the top of the steps.
