They may be called the Spanish Steps but the Italians (and flocks of tourists) sure know how to use them. Stroll to the top of the 137 step climb or prefer to people-watch with a Prosecco in hand amongst hot young things toting Zara bags and middle age business men sneaking in a mid-afternoon gelato. Visit in spring when pink azaleas smother the rich architecture, and if you can bear the early start, local knowledge tells us to ‘step it’ between midnight and 6am for one Rome sight which can be yours, even if only for uno momento.
