Love it! What is the significance of the Spanish Steps, besides being a way steep stairway?
These days, really just a gathering place and people watching spot. Originally built in the 1700s to link the Triniti dei Monti church with the square below. It was in the film "Roman Holiday." :) And the English poet John Keats had a house at the bottom, which is now a museum, but was closed the day we were there.
Thanks for the lesson! I saw Roman Holiday, but don't recall Spanish Steps--perhaps because I was so YOUNG then. :)
