Piazza di Spagna is one of the most famous squares in Rome. It’s at the end of the Spanish steps, inaugurated in 1725 for the Jubilee. In the square, you can also find a beautiful fountain, called La Barcaccia (literally ugly boat in Italian), sculpted by Bernini in 1629.
Piazza di Spagna is right in the upper-end central district of Rome and it’s surrounded by many fashion boutiques. In fact, the most fashionable streets are just around the corner from here. Take a walk on via dei Condotti, via Frattina, and via del Babuino to enjoy not only the shops, but also the impressive villas in the area.
