about The Spanish Steps
The Spanish Steps (Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti) are one of Rome’s most popular tourist attractions.
A grand staircase with 138 steps leading down to the Piazza di Spagna, the Spanish Steps were designed in the 1720s by Francesco de Sanctis, an Italian architect, and completed in 1726.
They were called the Spanish Steps after the Spanish Embassy to the Holy See, then located nearby. A popular spot since the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, today this beautiful staircase is always buzzing with tourists and leads to Rome’s most upmarket shopping area.
Just as empires rise and fall so do entry fees and opening hours!
