Trinità dei Monti, otherwise known as Piazza di Spagna, is undoubtedly, the most famous square in Rome with its never ending coming and going of Romans and tourists alike, now as in the past.
The square is dominated by the splendid Fountain of the Little Boat, the work of Pietro Bernini (not to be confused with his son Gianlorenzo), which is situated at the foot of the delightful staircase designed by De Santis.
At the top of the staircase there is the church of the Trinità dei Monti and in front of this an Egyptian obelisk.
The Pincio public gardens can easily be reached on foot from Spanish Steps and you can enjoy an absolutely stunning view of the city from here.
You can reach the Spanish steps from the Hotel Barocco in only 2 minutes on foot!
