Rome, You're Not Alone
Tucked away in the Kalorama neighborhood is an urban oasis of steps and terraces connecting S Street and Decatur Place NW. Designed in the early 20th century during D.C.'s "City Beautiful" movement, the Spanish Steps vaguely resemble the original version in Rome, but the smaller scale and residential surroundings creates an intimate, sheltered feeling. Like Rome, D.C.'s Spanish Steps are a neighborhood landmark and a natural gathering place with a romantic touch.
