12. Relax on the Spanish Steps

These 138 steps, constructed in the first quarter of the 18th century, lead all the way from Piazza di Spagna at their base to the Trinità dei Monti church at the top.

They comprise the widest staircase in Europe and are certainly worthy of a visit.

At the lower end of the stairs you can find an early baroque fountain called Fontana della Barcaccia, or “Fountain of the Old Boat”. It is credited Pietro Bernini; a member of the renowned artist family Bernini and father of famous Baroque artist Gian Lorenzo Bernini.

The fountain has the form of a sinking ship and it is said to be based upon a folk legend. The legend tells that a fishing boat was carried all the way to this exact spot during a massive flood of the Tiber River in the 16th century.

The design with the sinking boat also helped Bernini to overcome a technical problem, due to low water pressure.

Also, don’t pass up the chance to see the gorgeous fountain at Piazza di Spagna, as well as the impressive French church overlooking the steps and square.
