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.

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.

The place is beautiful but very crowded during day time. Last time we were there they were filming a tv series on the steps. Better to go early in the morning - might be fewer people. The steps are beautiful when viewed from the square beneath them but be sure to climb up and catch the views from top as well. There is an excellent gelato place just a hundred or two hundred meters from the square on the road opposite to the stairs.

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.

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.
