Souvenir Sketches of Rome Street Scenes. ……….. Looking up the 137 broad steps of the Spanish Stairs we see the Church of Santissima Trinita de Monti. The Piazza di Spagna always has been the central point of the foreigners’ quarter in Rome. The house where John Keats lived the end of his life is on the right. On clear days, flower peddlers put up their stalls on the lower steps. The streets leading off the piazza are filled with art and book and souvenir shops
