Exclusive collection of luxury Bed & Breakfast Spanish Steps, one of Rome's most beautiful squares.
The Piazza di Spagna has always attracted artists and writers from all the world: here John Keats spent the last years of his life, in a house just right of the piazza. The square, a majestic urban monument in the heart of Rome famous for the imposing staircase, is full of elegant hotels, luxury Bed & Breakfast and apartments for rent.
At the foot of the stairs stands the famous Barcaccia Fountain by Pietro Bernini and his son, Gian Lorenzo. Having the form of a sinking ship, the fountain refers to a folk legend according to which a fishing boat was carried away by the flood of the Tiber river in 1598 and was found at this exact spot. As a matter of fact, the sinking boat was ably invented by Bernini to overcome a technical problem due to low water pressure. The sun and bee ornamentation is a symbol of the Barberini family and a homage to Pope Urban VIII who commissioned the work.
