Climb Spanish Steps, the widest staircase in Europe and one of the most majestic urban monuments of the Baroque style. The 136 steps once linked the Spanish Embassy to a Franciscan church that was officially under the patronage of the Bourbon kings of France. An iconic fountain created by artist Gianlorenzo Bernini and his father stands at the foot of the staircase. Designed by architects Francesco de Sanctis and Alessandro Specchi, the staircase and the piazza were built between 1723 and 1725.

Spanish Steps reviews
Very crowded when we visited during the late morning. The crowds made it difficult to enjoy any view of the steps from the bottom. There were numerous flowers in bloom that we could enjoy closure...

I would say that this is overrated. The steps are pretty, but they’re crowded at all times of the day, no matter how early or late. At the end of the day, they’re just steps. If you’re not near...

Wow, there were so many people it was almost claustrophobic. It is a beautiful area and the steps and church were really cool. But be prepared to push your was through all the people as they enjoy the scenery. It is definitely worth visiting. I counted 180 steps to the top where a beautiful church awaits.
Another place in Rome worth seeing. The charming streets leading to the stairs are full of boutiques of the most eminent fashion houses. You can see that it is a very rich and expensive part of the city. The attraction itself is interesting, very well kept. Clean, despite the large number of tourists. It is worth paying attention to local traders who want to sell small gifts - I advise you not to, waste of money and their stories about the family, copy the sales manual. There is a beautiful view of the old town from the top. I recommend it and I'll be back there again.
