These are the Spanish Steps in Rome with the fountain Fontana della Barcaccia in front. The 135 steps date from the 18th century, and they climb the steep slope between the Piazza di Spagna at the base and the French church Trinità dei Monti at the top. It's obviously a very popular place for tourists to gather. Even though there is a French church at the top and the steps were paid for by the French, the name 'Spanish Steps' was chosen because of the Spanish embassy that was located here in the 17th century.
