Thank you Spagna Royal Suite for hosting this wonderful view! Just saw about 20 people in full 17th century ball gown costumes circle the fountain. Sunday at 4:40 pm Rome time. They looked like the cast of a opera, what a fantastic sighting. (((skylinewebcams)))

Debbie, I believe that you were on the Michelangelo staircase leading to Campidoglio and the Capitoline Museum. From the top of the staircase Teatro Marcello would likely be visible to the left as you faced the street. Ciao.
can anyone tell me is there a teatro opera house round the corner from the top of the Spanish steps? when I visited a few years ago I seem remember to walking up a lot of steps and seeing a very long queue around the corner for the opera house,but I cant remember if it actually was the Spanish steps.
@Linda, indeed a nice one, watching it also for almost a hour now.. Happy new Year to all and Thank you to Skyline for that amazing free of charge service
