The Spanish Steps (once residence to the Spanish ambassador in the 1600s)is known in Italian as Piazza di Spagna (Spanish square). They lead up to the Trinita dei Monti, where the views over Rome Italy are spectacular.
While in Rome, Joeâs aim is to learn about Italian fashion.
But first, heâs off to meet his co-host, Lucilla. Joe buys some bread and fruit at the Campo de Fiori Market and tries to learn some basic Italian before heading to Lucillaâs house for breakfast.
Feeling a little full, Joe and Lucilla run up the Spanish Steps for exercise, then walk to the Trevi Fountain to throw the traditional three coins in. In a luxury store on Via Condotti, Joe gets a preview of Italian haute couture before he and Lucilla learn to make Italian gelato at the Cremeria Monteforte.
Now itâs time to get down to business. Joe accompanies Lucilla to a fashion design class at the School of Design and, later, they have their pictures taken at the famous Colosseum with a character whoâs really dressed to the nines â a gladiator! Joe marvels at an equally impressive building â the Pantheon â over dinner at Piazza della Rotonda. Finally, Lucilla takes Joe on a hot-air balloon ride, to see Rome by night all lit up.
