Discover Rome's Piazza di Spagna

Boasting a prime spot in Rome's historic center, Piazza di Spagna is a star turn in the city's most prominent neighborhood. Although best-known for the so-called Spanish Steps that lead to Trinità dei Monti, a 16th-century Renaissance church designed by architect Carlo Maderno, the piazza also plays host to the delightful Fontana della Barcaccia, a Baroque-style fountain believed to be the last creation of sculptor Pietro Bernini. Alongside these reminders of the city's elegant past, you'll find Piazza di Spagna vacation rentals offer the chance to stay right in the heart of one of the Eternal City's favorite hangouts.

Shopping and sightseeing near Piazza di Spagna

Taking a seat on the iconic Spanish Steps is often activity enough for those travelers content to sit and watch the world go by, especially in the spring when blooming azaleas add color and fragrance to an already picturesque scene. An array of trinket sellers provides plenty of opportunities to pick up a souvenir or 2, although explore a little further afield and you'll find the streets around the square include the upmarket Via dei Condotti, home to designer outlets and the world-famous Antico Caffe Greco, an ornate 18th-century coffee shop that counts Casanova among its former clientele.
