Locals call them the «Scalinata di Trinità dei Monti». And there is no doubt that the Spanish Steps absolutely must be visited if visiting Rome. They rise up magnificently before the visitor's eyes, and appeal and delight with their incomparable late Baroque and Rococo details. Early in the 18th century, the architect Francesco des Sanctis won the commission to design the steps in an exciting competition, and duly created one of the most famous flights of stairs in the world. Today, it is especially popular with lovers, who like to enjoy a glass of wine while sitting on them.
