Lovely Piazza and on our first visit we were advised to go into side streets to avoid the high prices which we did and had a perfectly nice snack lunch but felt we had missed out on the Piazza. So we returned and had a wonderful 2 hours in the sun with a pricey beer but well worth it.

the very long rectangular shaped square has a special atmosphere, especially from spring to fall. Bernini's marbles are extraordinary, and also the small church opposite the main fountain has extraordinary decorations. At Christmas time it turns in a very crowded open market, romans love it, but the tourists loose the image of the square. Very nice art stalls, you can... More

My partner was dying to see this piazza. I didn't understand why until we arrived. It's breathtaking, the sculptures protruding from the fountains tell a different story in every step. The detail and extravagance in all three fountains is amazing. It's definitely worth the walk to find it. The oval shaped cobbled road that runs around the fountains was used... More

Loved this Piazza, there are art stalls in the afternoon, maybe all day - not sure. It just has an atmosphere in it that makes you want to wonder around and then sit down somewhere and watch people.

I've always enjoyed Piazza Navona. There is usually always some stalls there selling various items. Aground Christmas it turns into a Christmas outdoor market. The Bernini fountain is beautiful and well worth seeing. There is so much to see in Rome that it is hard to prioritize everything. But Piazza Navona, and the surrounding places to eat, is a very...

Piazza Navona occupies the site of a Roman chariot-racing track, thus the oval shape. Especially during warmer weather, it's packed with tour groups, trinket sellers, artists hawking their canvasses, jugglers and sightseers resting their weary legs. So if you have a thing about crowds, maybe walk by once or twice and move on. The fountains, of course, are famous and... More

The best Italian square in Rome...too touristy of course, try early morning or evening for calm! Just Italian, Rome, nothing spectacular, fabulous for atmosphera..... Then go to Trastevere, forget all the famous places, you have done Roma!

When you head there you know its going to be popular. I preferred this to the Trevi and the spanish steps. I absolutely loved the fountain and could have sat their and ate ice cream all day. Well worth a visit. It is popular so beware especially in summer.

This piazza is stunning with three very different features of interest, but there are always too many people around. Nevertheless it is worth seeing and, because it is so central, you will pass close by when you are visiting other at
