This is a great place to be at dusk. It seems every young man in Rome was there cruising and being cruised. The elaborate steps lead to the Church of Trinita dei Monti, which is a beautiful church. At the base is a fountain that is supposed to bring you good luck if you drink from it.
There is a great little neighborhood near the Church of Trinita. In the evening there are vendors selling lots of food items such as fresh fruit, roasted nuts and drinks. Artists set up all around the Church and at the base of the steps to sell their work.
The Spanish Steps is a a beautiful sight, and if you like to look at pretty men, too, you will really appreciate the view.
