    Get here early to admire and soak the atmosphere. Later than 10 in the morning and its full of tourists. Note you cant eat on the steps, and you will be asked to leave them if you sit with your ice cream. Its right in the centre of the expensive shops, but the square and its surrounds are a lovely place to explore.

    Iconic location in Rome. A good starting or ending point it is in close proximity to a lot of other sights. A short walk to the Trevi Fountain as well as a ton of shops.

    Each time I visit Rome I never fail to go to this spot. First its fun to people watch, next its right next to the fashionable streets of Via Condotti and Via Del Curso just need to watch out for pickpockets :)

    One of Rome's most iconic sights. Well touristed but somehow the hoards are easier to navigate through due to the size of the plaza. Visit early or late for a more intimate experience.

    This is a great place to rest your legs, have a picnic, and watch the people go by in the Piazza below. Head up the stairs and you will find yourself near the Galleria Borghese - one of the coolest museums in Rome.

    Almost as iconic as the Trevi Fountain, the Forum, or the Coliseum. Great neighborhood and well worth a few hours especially if the weather is nice. Enjoy!

    It may not technically be the heart of Rome but it was here on these steps that I felt in tune (as much as a tourist can be) with this great city. Can't think of a better way to watch the sun go down than with someone you love, sitting on the Spanish Steps in Rome, sipping on some fine Italian wine. Great people watching too, if you're not into the sun ;-)

    Very crowded during the daytime. Lots of people and if your lucky you can catch homeless people brushing there teeth in the fountain!

    Worth seeing at night for people watching. Get some food, some beer and hang out. Interesting things happen.

    I honestly think that the Spanish Steps are a bit overrated, or maybe I was just expecting more. The steps are way too crowded and you almost can't find a spot to seat. Also, taking a good picture is a challenge because of the crowds. The church at the top of the steps is nice and the Piazza di Spagna at the bottom too, but be prepared to navigate in a sea of tourists to enjoy this spot.

Description

Designed by Alessandro Specchi and Francesco de Sanctis, the Spanish Steps ascend from Piazza di Spagna to the Trinità dei Monti church. Each year in spring the infiorata (literally, enflowering) brings thousands of azaleas to decorate the steps. A popular landmark, the steps are usually adorned with tourists taking a moment's rest and soaking in the atmosphere.
