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.

  • The most disappointing part of a day in Rome. Just steps with nothing more to say. Certainly not worth the long walk to get there.

  • Literally just some steps surrounded by people taking photos of said steps because they think they should. Brings literally nothing to the table

  • 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!
