To be honest, I didn't really get too excited about the Spanish steps. There're old and big, and I guess beautiful, but I think it's mostly just a place where young people sit and drink a few beers in the evening.

The Piazza di Spagna or Spanish Square is connected to a French church (Trinità dei Monti) on top of the hill via a long staircase, known as the Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti or Spanish Steps. The elegant staircase consists of 137 steps over twelve different flights. The steps are usually very crowded; it attracts tourists as well as locals who use it as a gathering place.

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 ;-)

The Spanish Steps are beautifully built - if only I was able to see them under all those tourists! This is honestly one of the most crowded spots in Rome, and it takes a patient soul to deal with the mass of people. But if you can find a spot to sit on, take advantage and snap a few photos of the stairs and the surrounding piazza.

I have always had the "I love it before I ever see it" kind of affair with the Spanish Steps. I first knew about it from the Audrey Hepburn and Gregory Peck 1953 black and white movie Roman Holiday. It was the funniest and most romantic movie I had ever seen as a little girl. My favorite scene was after Audrey Hepburn cut off her long hair, she used up her last bit of money to buy a gelato and enjoyed it at Spanish Steps. I dreamed about doing it one day myself. The first time I was in Rome, I made a point of eating a gelato at Spanish Steps. However, much to my surprise, it was so crowded. It was nothing like the scene in the movie, where there were just a few people. I could hardly find space to step my feet let along sitting down. I had a photo taken of me holding a gelato with hundreds of people behind me at Spanish Steps. Dreams do come true, just not exactly as I imaged.

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 :)
