The Spanish Steps

The Piazza di Spagna, is one of the most popular meeting places in Rome. In the Renaissance period, the square was the most popular tourist attraction in the city, attracting artists and writers alike. It was full of elegant hotels, inns and residences.

The Piazza di Spagna is also known as the Spanish Steps. These steps connect the square and the TrinitĂ  Church above, providing the city with a particularly intriguing attraction that is adored by tourists from all over the world.

We visited at the end of April, a time when the ramps of the staircase are covered with a sea of pink and white flowers - what a beautiful site to see!
