Spanish Steps

Sumedha Bharpilania
Who would have thought that a mere flight of steps could be turned into an extremely popular (and absolutely free) tourist attraction? Possibly the most famous marble steps in the world, the Spanish steps form a heaven for people watchers, bookworms and those looking to spend time with friends and a few bottles of beer. The fuchsia flowers scattered all around the staircase provide an even prettier background to the Piazza Di Spagna and the 'Sinking Boat Fountain' at the foot of the steps. The multitude of branded stores and gelaterias dotting the piazza stand in stark contrast to this 18th Century beauty. Go early in the evening and spend a few good hours there. Getting there: If in case you are not living near the Tridente/Trevi area which is walking distance from the steps, taking the underground metro is the best idea because it is faster and cheaper. The tickets come for about 1.5 Euros and can be bought from the several machines or ticketing counters at the station. Your stop is 'Spagna' along the A Line and the Piazza is less than 200 metres from the station. Beware of pickpockets on the train.

The legendary Spanish Steps were on the way to our hotel. I’ve always pictured it in a certain way, after watching the film “Roman Holiday”. I had to make the chauffeur stop the car. The thrill of walking up and down those steps is inexplicable. I half expected to bump into Gregory Peck. There was an aura of romanticism surrounding the place. There were couples sitting on the steps, absolutely unaware of their surroundings. It was crowded, but so very beautiful.

A set of 135 steps that lead directly to the Bourbon Spanish Embassy are the Spanish Steps. Designed by architects Francesco de Sanctis and Alessandro Specchi, these steps are a favorite place to hang out for tourists and locals alike. At the foot of these steps is the Piazza De Spagna and on the top is an elegant and splendid Church. On the whole it is a great start to a tour full of architectural and historic charm.

The set of steps connecting Piazza di Spagna and Piazza Trinità dei Monti is a monumental stairway made in 1725. Framed by the Fonatana della Barcacia at the bottom and the Trinitia dei Monti church at the top, this wide stairway is a regal scene indeed.
