    This is a must see in Rome. Soon or later everyone comes here, and it is a great meeting place. It is truly a visually attractive square. It is the place that brings together the famous Spanish Steps, an unusual fountain (Fontana della Barcaccia) on obelisk, the beautiful church of Trinità dei Monti and the Colonna dell'Immacolata. The square is named after the Spanish Embassy to the Holy See. In the seventeenth century, the area around the embassy was even considered Spanish territory. Plus, it is a shopping mecca – you will find such upscale shops as Prada, Valentino, Gucci, etc. nearby.

    Beautiful fountain and nice view at the top of the steps. A lot of tourists to spoil the view!! Lots of shops and laneways to explore.

    A lovely area in a walk around Rome, and the gateway to the Spanish steps. The fountain is a lovely photo opportunity if you can get near it. When we went it was around 2pm and the area was packed as it was sunny and a lot of people were trying to get to the Spanish steps. There were a lot of the more expensive shops in this area so good if you want to do some exclusive shopping. A must do, but try to get there earlier in the day to appreciate it without the crowds of people.

    A nice place to go, with a great view to the Spanish steps. The only problem is that it's very crowded, so if you want to take pictures you need to go very early in the morning or very late at night time.

    Apart from the fact that it is a fountain with a huge stairwell next to it (the Spanish steps), it's only a starting point for exploring narrow streets around. Still, make it part of your walk around Rome.

    One of the cutest drinking fountains ever Representing the boats that help make Rome what it is today this fountain serves some of the coldest, most refreshing drinking water available in Rome You'll never have to buy water in Rome

    August 2016 - the height of tourist season and the Steps were closed. This attraction is at the base of the Steps. It was very crowded as it was the only thing that thousands of disappointed tourists could observe after a trek to the Steps.

    Such a pleasant feeling I love it - whether is during the day or at night, summer or winter - the Spanish steps are always buzzing with people - simply great !!! The area is surrounding by lovely shops and exactly opposite is the famous Via Condotti !!! Totally amazing every time I go :)

    The most important information - it is notorious for POCK POCKETS - so be vigilant A pleasant piazza bustling with tourists and youngsters at the bottom of the Spanish steps. With its modern boat sculpture as a focus, there are numerous shops of all kinds, restaurants and bars in the adjoining streets making it a place to hang out

    I Like this place full of energy and life even at 10.00 AM, you can take some food and sit to eat and drink a beer. Cheers.

    This is the famous square that lies at the bottom part of the Spanish stairs. It features a lovely fountain and a column - and thousands of tourists. It's almost too overwhelming to stroll in the square due to it being so hectic. Watch your belongings as pick-pocketing is definitely an issue here.

    Ok, this is a tourist place, but it also one of the hottest neighborhoods in Rome, with several upcoming designers, artists and so, walk around Via Vittoria and the perpendicular Vias to find local shops with exquisite (and unique) clothes and products.

    Piazza di Spagna was nice. We liked so much that square and the fountain seems so good. It includes modernity and history together and it feels wet in summer times

    It's a beautiful and really romantic square. You could find close all the luxurious brands for shopping and really good places for food and drinks.

    This square, with its view of the Spanish Steps, would be a lovely place to spend time...unfortunately the hordes of tourists hanging out made it seem loud and kind of...cheesy. Because of the noise, this was one of the few places in Rome that seemed like an artificial tourist attraction (which it isn't). Next time I'm in Rome I will try to come here early in the morning, to get a feel for the space before the hordes arrive.

    I walked all the way from Villa Borghese down to Spagna and was literally taken by the view and the steps and the fountain at the end of the street.It so reminded me of the Italian films I have watched, went down the steps and started taking photos...So many people around holding ice creams or slices of pizza walking up and down the spanish steps...A highlight of Rome I would say even if you don't like steps, I believe that you will love this piazza and the place as a whole!It gives you a good taste of Rome!Don't forget the views from above right next to the Trinita Dei Monti...Nice church by the way!

    During our Italian trip we decided to have a night walk around old Rome city. Our hotel concierge recommended us Piazza Di Spagna ( Spain square). The name of this place comes from the Spain embassy which is placed here. it is really beautiful place with some romantic atmosphere as all old Rome. It was a little bit cold and nice to walk around.
