- Piazza di SpagnaFeb 19, 2014
This piazza is always full of people! There's shopping nearby, the famed Spanish steps, and there's the "Spagna" metro A stop nearby. This is a great, central location for starting your exploration of the city. There is a tea room nearby that is worth a visit if you like tea (although it is a little pricey, the interior is relaxing). The famous fountain the in the center reminds visitors the days when the piazza used to flood due to the swollen Tiber river.

Hip plaza near the Spanish steps. Always something going on. You can buy cheap souvenirs or hire an expensive horse and carriage, so there is more than a faint whiff of the commercial. But that shouldn't be enough to spoil it.

My favorite part of the Spanish Plaza is the fountain. In fact one of the coolest features of Rome is that fresh, drinkable, delicious and free water flows from lions' mouths everywhere you go.

Piazza di Spagna (Spanish Plaza) is based right by the famous Spanish Steps. As with most picturesque plazas with Rome, it features fancy sculptured fountains and historical, old-school buildings. Due to the Spanish Steps, it can get crowded and touristy, but that shouldn't be a deterrence from coming here.

Piazza di Spagna or also know as the Spanish steps is a nice sit-around place around the fountain on the never-ending steps. Some luxury shopping stores, brand clothing shops I mean, are around this area. It will be definitely a nice moment for cinema lovers, where they will feel the famous Fellini's falling stroller scene being shot here at the time.

Sinuous, elegant, sensual steps leading from Rome's center to the Borghese Gardens. Built following the ideas of an Italian Pope and the designed by an Italian architect (Francesco de Salvi), it was financed by a French King, and it takes its name from the Spanish Embassy to the Holy See which is nearby. It is currently Rome's most iconic sight.

People watch on the iconic stone steps or stroll through the piazza and splash your face with water from the fountain, or both. Piazza di Spagna is one of Rome's main sights, but it's perfect for budget travelers as a place that can entertain you for an hour, for free. Catch the infiorata in spring, when the steps are covered in flowers, or go at night with some friends and a beer for a less-crowded vibe.

Piazza di Spagna is probably one of the most "pretty" of the piazze in Centro Storico. The fountain adds a nice touch to the impressive transition of Via dei Condotti opening up to the Spanish Steps. It's crowded, but for good reason.
