Spanish Steps, Rome

With its characteristic butterfly plan, the Piazza di Spagna is one of the most famous images in the world, as well as being one of the most majestic urban monuments of Roman Baroque style. In the Renaissance period, the square was the most popular tourist attraction in the city: it attracted artists and writers alike and was full of elegant hotels, inns and residences. At the end of the seventeenth century, it was called Trinità dei Monti, after the church that dominates the square from above, but it was later given the name we know today after the Spanish Ambassador who lived there. www.italyguides.it/us/roma/spanish_steps.htm Unexpected visit to Rome(by train) while delayed in Civitavecchia, the port of Rome. 1986 Antibes to Sicily YCA 'French Connection' Delivery Cruise.
