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
Best to visit st night when there are no tourists and everything is under the lights. Beautiful fountain at the base and church at the top. Walk the steps to see the view from the top. Won’t take you ... more »
Εκεί κατεβήκαμε την πρώτη μέρα μας αφού η κεντρική στάση του μετρο σταματάει στα όμορφα σκαλιά όπου οι Ρωμαίοι προσφέρουν στις αγαπημένες τους ένα λουλούδι.... πολύ όμορφα κ σημείο αναφοράς ... more »There we went down on our first day since the central Metro stop stops at the beautiful steps where the Romans offer their beloved a flower.... Very pretty K benchmark...
A nice set of steps. A bit overshadowed by the rest of Rome's attractions but worth taking a look at. There is a fountain at the base of the steps that has fresh water to fill your drink bottle with. On a hot day, you will definitely need to fill up before trekking up to the top of the stairs!
Nice place but very busy. Surrounded by designer shops so good for shopaholics. There is a water fountain at the bottom of the steps that has an access point to fill up water bottles or simply splash yourself with water. At the top of the steps is a very ornate church that is with having a quick look in.
