Not only one of the best-known staircases in Europe but also a popular meeting point for the Romans. The place is especially beautiful in spring when there are countless blooming azaleas.
Consisting of 135 steps, the staircase originally connected the Embassy of Spain and the Trinità dei Monti church. Next to the Spanish Steps, there is a house where John Keats, a famous British poet of the Romantic period, lived and died in 1821. Nowadays, the house is dedicated to his memory (and the memory of Percy Bysshe Shelley) as a museum called Keats-Shelley House.
It is not surprising that such a beautiful location appeared in William Wyler’s film Roman Holiday starring Audrey Hepburn.
