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 ;-)

I came here in the rain and let me tell you it was beautiful. I can only imagine it would be equally if not more beautiful in the sun, though the rain adds a certain depth and mysteriousness to everything I can't help but love. Walking along the Via dei Condotti to the glorious Piazza di Spagna and the Scalinata is something straight out of a fairy tale.

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.

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 :)

Always filled with people: visitors, locals, students, vendors. The Spanish Steps is a gathering place, a place to hang out, and a really lively place to take it the spirit the Rome: day AND night.

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.
