You must see the Spanish Steps with its stairway of Trinità dei Monti, which, with its 135 steps seems to climb to the sky. Wonderful setting for fashion shows and famous star of many films, Piazza di Spagna is known and loved around the world. Many historical figures have stayed here, as Joseph Balsamo, called Cagliostro, famous alchemist and esoteric, who was staying in one of the adjacent houses to the square. Today the atmosphere is amazing, with thousands of tourists sitting on the stairs or around the “Barcaccia”, the fountain that is at the center of the square.
The Fountain of “Barcaccia” is located in Piazza di Spagna, at the foot of the Spanish Steps. According to one popular version, its particular form may have been inspired by the presence on the square of a boat aground, brought there by the flood of the Tiber in 1598. Bernini designed the semi-submerged boat-shaped fountain and conceived the bow and stern with identical shapes. The fountain has two side vents at the same height and just above street level that seemed much higher than they actually are.
Villa Medici is an architectural complex located on the Pincio hill, next to the Spanish Steps in Rome. Hosts since 1803 the French Academy in Rome, several collections and contemporary art exhibitions, concerts. Placed on the height of the Pincio is certainly one of the most prestigious villas of Rome with a unique view. The stunning views, the luxurious apartments of the Cardinal and the prestigious gardens, are the most fascinating elements of this place.
