Rome has been termed 'The Eternal City' in reference to its ancient beginnings and the awe-inspiring tangible history that is all around the modern visitor. It is quite humbling to walk along the streets of Rome and visit the sites and realise the countless people - martyrs, emperors, gladiators, saints, sinners, poets, writers, artists, pilgrims and everyday Roman citizens who have gone before us in the same spots and seeing the same sights - everything from the magnificent site of the Basilica of St Peter to the awe-inspiring Coliseum.
The Spanish Steps
Rome is therefore not short on things to see and do, and the Piazza Di Spagna Suite Rome is in the very heart of the Eternal City. One of the most famous tourist attractions in Rome are the Spanish Steps - a staircase of 138 stone steps leading up to the church of Trinita' dei Monti, this site has been a meeting place and socialising point for young Romans for centuries and is as romantic as it is colourful in the spring and summer. It is here too where the famous statue of 'Mary - the Immaculate Conception' is situated and where each year on 8th December (the Roman Catholic feast of the Immaculate Conception) that the Pope visits to adorn the statue with flowers.
