    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 :)

    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.

    Looking down from the top of the Spanish Steps. A great gathering spot and you will routinely find small groups hanging out here socializing and people watching.

    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!

    One of the most famous landmarks in Rome and although I don't find this particular historical site the most interesting thing Rome has to offer, it is impressive.

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

    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.

    A great place to sit down and enjoy the atmosphere after walking the city. Great views, and lots of other travelers just hanging out.

    The Spanish steps first became famous in the US in the 1960's, after the movie "3 Coins in a Fountain" highlighted the Trevi fountain at the Spanish steps, as a wishing well for good luck.

    Now it is a standard tourist destination, especially for Americans. And to service those Americans, tucked under the steps to the left as you are in front of them, is a McDonalds! Yup Micky'D's in the hood. Slightly different in menu options, but the most popular favorites are here.

    The Spanish Steps seem more for seating than ascending, but I was one of the culprits. I bought an ice cream and sat to watch an open air concert in the plaza below. It lives up to its romantic reputation.

    This is just a fun place to go and mill around. Good local restaurants off side streets. Boutique shopping nearby.

    Good to visit to get a view of the city. Beware of pick-pocketers (as always-- if someone tries to give you something "for free," they probably will chase after you and demand money). That said, nothing to go out of your way for, just some place to chill if you'd like!

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.
