The Spanish Steps

Category : Blog Posts , Europe , Italy , Rome

A set of 135 steps located at the heart of the city of Rome, the Spanish Steps have been the stage and highlights of several movies, video clips and album recordings by well-known celebrities.

Historically, they are called “Spanish Steps” because they are located at the Piazza Di Spagna, and connect the Spanish Embassy with the Trinità dei Monti church. At the forefront, the steps are beautified by a water fountain, the Fontana della Barcaccia (the fountain of the ugly boat), which is made into the shape of a half-sunken ship with water overflowing its sides into a small basin.

In Rome, today, every major piazza is surrounded by at least one fountain. To learn more about Roman’s history with water and fountains, click here.

Today, I definitely feel like Audrey Hepburn in The Roman Holiday (1953).
