You have now found yourself in the very heart of Rome. Everywhere you go now will be surrounded by bars, restaurants and plenty of high fashion stores. If you love designer clothes and brands, be sure not to miss Via Del Corso. You will find plenty of Gucci, Prada, Miu Miu, Juicy Couture, Hermes and many more designer stores that will offer you a 5 star shopping experience. Right at the end of Via Del Corso, you will find yourself at the Spanish Steps. Depending on what time of year you visit, during Spring and Autumn, there are usually flower arrangements that decorate the steps as you go up them. The name ‘Spanish Steps’ is quite deceiving, as it suggests that it was the Spanish who built the steps. Indeed this is not correct. The steps themselves were designed and built by the French, commissioned by King Louis XII. The ‘Spanish’ name arrives from the fact that the Spanish Embassy is in the square beneath the steps. It is so lovely to just have a sit and watch the world pass by for a little while, and a fantastic photo op! Photo by Ilnur Kalimullin on Unsplash
