It is only a short walk from the Hotel to Piazza di Spagna. Its world-famous steps, the Spanish Steps, elicit strong emotions in just about everyone. The Hotel Savoy, thanks to its proximity to Piazza di Spagna, gives you the chance to start your walking tour of Rome here, taking via Ludovisi and several side streets all the way to the Trinità dei Monti and its gracious steps. Built by architect Francesco De Sanctis at the behest of Pope Benedict XIII between 1723 and 1725, the Spanish Steps were inaugurated by Pope Innocent XIII. It is one of the symbolic landmarks of Rome. The purpose of the grand travertine steps was to connect the Bourbon Spanish Embassy to the Church of the Trinità dei Monti above the piazza.
Every nook and cranny of Rome is steeped in history, every corner exudes the atmosphere of long ago places which are, at the same time, still real. Piazza di Spagna is, for example, a great place for grandiose high-end fashion shows. The blending of stunning piazzas and the beauty of the historical centre with haute couture is only possible in a city as marvelous as this one.
