I have no idea why the Spanish Steps have made it to any list of places to see in Rome. So here, I’ll spare you the time and show you exactly what it looks like.
It’s a tourist haven with countless people and a GIANT ADVERTISEMENT FOR PERFUME! OK, maybe the Versace ad has since been taken down (I visited in September), but this is really just a free market for pick-pocketers and people peddling selfie-sticks. I’m not sure I see the appeal.
I mean, sure, we look good, but what kind of a backdrop is that???
Needless to say, the view was a bit of a disappointment. I suppose the only silver lining is that once you pass the tourists and make your way up the hill, you can get a few good shots of the city skyline … just watch your valuables as you do so.
