LaCost at the Spanish Steps

Author Patrick Rizio reading LaCost at Spanish Steps, Rome.

They are the widest steps in Europe. They connect the Piazza di Spagna on the lower end with the Piazza Trinita del Monti on the top. They consist of 135 steps with areas of curved and straight flights. They were built in 1723-1735 and named after the original Spanish Embassy which was located on the lower end.  Poet John Keats lived in a house at the bottom right of the steps until his death at 25, ( Tuberculosis ).They have been a traditional meeting place for centuries. They are absolutely beautiful, and a great place to read a book!

Where will LaCost show up next?
