Unfortunately this is the memory I have of this otherwise fine plaza. My wife and I passed through several times during our stay in Rome and the onslaught of migrant hawkers was incessant from dawn til dusk. If you can get past this annoyance, the plaza is a huge wide open space that's perfect for resting a while and watching... More

We visited in early May on a bright sunny day. Just to wonder about and look at the fountains, statues and events going on would be enough but whilst there you must sit and have an ice-cream and feel truly Roman for a while.

The annual Christmas Fair in Piazza Navona, Rome, has been decimated. According to the locals I've spoken to, the politicians decided the Fair was not elegant enough for the location. Of course it wasn't. That was why it was so much fun. The Fair has lost 50-75% of its booths; it has probably lost 50-75% of its visitors as well.... More

This was one of my favorite piazza's while strolling around Rome. The small shops and restaurants within the piazza makes the area so quaint compared to the others in the area. Even though it doesn't look like it, this Piazza has such a rich history its a must while you are walking around the town! This Piazza is home to... More

After we visited the Pantheon, we walked over to this plaza for our break. This is a very large oval shaped plaza containing 3 magnificent fountains with sculptures. The middle one is the most impressive called “Fountain of the four Rivers” with an Egyptian obelisk standing tall in the middle and facing the church of saint Agnese in Agone. On... More

This for me is the most visually appealing of Rome's piazzas and certainly one of the largest. It is home to Bernini's beautiful fountains and in December a carousel and fair stalls! They are colourful at night anyway. During the day you can people watch and/or have coffee in the many bars and restaurants that surround the piazza. Afterwards spend... More

I cannot compare this place to Fontanna di Trevi as it was undergoing some refurbishin in the time we stayed in Rome, nonetheless Piazza Navona and it's fountains are a beautiful landmark, especially after dark.

Piazza Navona will always be special to me now, as this is where my boyfrind proposed to me, right by the Fountain of the Four Rivers! It is a lovely square surrounded by cafes and bars. The fountain and architecture are simply stunning. We went on a Friday during the day and it was quite emplty, and still in the... More

Piazza Navona was my favourite square whilst visiting Rome. Although eating these is quite expensive (like eating in all Piazzas), the fountains and architectures are beautiful and it is lovely to walk through. Highly recommend it!
