The Spanish Steps/Piazza di Spagna

The piazza di Spagna/Spanish Steps is one of the most popular meeting places in Rome. It is also one of the most sought-after and visually pleasing squares. A monumental staircase - the famous Spanish Steps, an obelisk and a beautiful church combine and become a worldwide attraction for photographers and turists to the square.
It is often crowded on the steps where people sit to talk and to entertain while taking a gorgeous view of the square.
At the bottom of the Spanish Steps is the Piazza di Spagna or Spanish square. The long, triangular square is named after the Spanish Embassy to the Holy See. In the 17th century, the area around the embassy was even considered Spanish territory.

Piazza di Spagna is also the most renowned place for shopping: from here can enter Via dei Condotti, one of the most fashionable streets of Rome, where you can find boutiques of Prada, Missoni, Dolce and Gabbana, Bulgari, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and many others.
