Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti
The spanish steps are made by the Frenchman, Guefffier in 1723.
It was made to be the Spanish ambassay ( that's why it has it's name ) at the Holy Chair.
In the past it was loved by artists and Grand Tour travelers,specially English people, that's why it had also the nickname ' English Getto'.
Tennyson, Byron, Liszt, Wagner, Stendhal, Rubens, Balzac and Keats lived here.
The most beautiful time to visit these steps is in juni or july.
The steps are full with flowers, azalea's,

I found Trastevere to be a wonderful retreat from the relentless busyness of Rome in general. Quiet streets - ochered coloured buildings - small out door restaurants. I found myself so beguiled by this area I ate lunch here 3 of the 7 days I was in Rome. A peaceful oasis.
Located in a secret location, this bar is situated just behind Piazza Navona. You'd be lucky if you can find this bar easily! Usually filled with young local people, this bar has amazing cocktails.You can enjoy free buffet of late-night nibbles here.
Special kind of restaurant
Signor Lino has only one menu for a fixed price (20 Euros). including Water and Wine.
The dishes are old but the food is fantastic. The menu is a five-course dinner.
You will enjoy it!
There's a lot of steps and people...
Not sure what the point is, but there's tones of people who come here to hang out and sit on the many steps. A fountain at the bottom of the steps leads to a street filled rich shops, some of the most expensive in Rome.
People sit and chill out here, passing the time. The view from the top of the steps sweeps across the city and is quite spectacular at night.
