This is a gorgeous piazza that is filled with hustle and bustle of tourists but at the same time chilled out with people sitting back in the cafés just watching the world go by! You can have food or just a drink in one of the many restaurants and cafe bars or even just sit on one of the seats... More

This was one of our favorite squares. Beautiful view and full of little restaurants to choose from. We had an amazing dessert at one of the restaurants, regretting I can't remember the name.

While Rome abounds with many remarkable sites, ambling inside this piazza transports you to the 16th century. The shape of buildings, the obelisks and fountains, this is a time travelers dream of a place. While I only shopped at a toy store in the square, it seems like a perfect place, too, for a more modern experience of buying presents... More

We visited this ancient place dating from the Middle Ages in late afternoon when there were so many things going on: artists using chalk and spray paint, portrait and caricature artists, jewelry artists and vendors, music performers, soccer ball antic performers, mimes, etc. Lots of people, some eating, some people-watching, some watching performers, some dining in front of restaurants but...

This square is so beautiful and relaxing, it makes you feel that you really in Rome. It's an amazing place to amble or stop for a drink at one of the restaurants or by any of the fountains. Highly recommended as you'll not regret this!

Amazingly beautiful and romantic...the picturesque moment you imagine when you envision going to Europe. Come at night. There are people playing music, selling art, eating a late dinner, and drinking wine. There's a fountain and benches, and the setting felt absolutely magical. You can sit and people watch or get to know other tourists. This was my FAVORITE place in... More

Even if you are in Rome only for a few days do take out the time to visit the Piazza Navona. Its a large and rectangular Piazza with three fountains and beautiful statuary. In the centre is the Fountain of the Four rivers with an Egyptian obelisk. We visited the Piazza in the evening and everything shone burnished gold. The... More

A bustling square full of painters, resaurants, gelateries and fountains. If you like to people watch this place is for you. Just take a moment to sit and listen to all the chatter in different languages and watch the tourists excitedly looking at the market stalls whilst eating their gelato's. A real roman experience

Yes, Trevi and other fountains are more famous, but the Fountains of the Four Rivers was my favorite in all of Rome. Each side is different & tells a story if you do the research/learn the history in its carving. The piazza is oblong & surrounded by buildings, so it feels more tight/small compared to other piazzas. There are other,... More

Piazza Navona is one of the most beautiful Piazzas in Italy. Even though it was crowded in July, we were able to stroll around and take it all in. There were some fun street performers (including wonderful musicians) and also some vendors that were selling some nice paintings and purses!
