Rome IV

To take a break during your sightseeing-tour the Scalinata di Spagna is a fantastic spot. We enjoyed the sun sitting admidst the young folk on the steps. The Spanish Steps ramp a steep slope between the Piazza di Spagna at the base and the church Trinità dei Monti above. The monumental stairway, of 138 steps, was built in 1723–1725, linking the Bourbon Spanish embassy, today still located in the piazza below, with Trinità dei Monti.

From this church it's a short walk to the Villa Borghese which is a large landscape garden containing several villas such as Villa Medici. There is another entrance at the Porte del Popolo by Piazza del Popolo. The south part of the park offers one of the greatest views over Rome.
