Free Friday: Spanish Steps, Rome 🇮🇹

The Spanish Steps is a popular free attraction in Rome. It is named for the Spanish embassy to the Vatican which has been in Rome for 300 years. The steps is wide with a curving staircase, and its 138 steps lead from Piazza di Spagna to an obelisk at the top between two church towers.Aristocrats, poets, artists, and writers have hanged out at the steps over the years such as Keats, Goethe, and Byron among others. Today, it is a people-gathering place. A place to sit and soak in Rome.
