Rising up from Piazza di Spagna to the church of Trinità dei Monti, the Spanish Steps - or more properly known as Scalinata della Trinità dei Monti - were built between 1723 and 1726. They offer another very popular meeting place for resting your bum, and I was quite amused how nearly everyone seated were on the right-hand side in the shade! But the temperature in the mid-day sun on that day did reach 31°C…
V1 & V2 were taken with the 70-300, from Via Condotti, an exclusive shopping area of Rome, where they don't have prices on goods in the windows! V3 was taken with the 10-20 from near the bottom of the steps.
