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!

Find a shady chair and kick back and relax. Take in the fabulous fountains and architecture, listen to the bells and watch the polizei try to keep people from sitting on the edges of the fountain. A perfect place to spend an afternoon making up intriguing stories about the people around you.

After seeing all the landmarks and cultural places etc etc. It is a must to visit piazza navona. The restaurants all around , the fountains. The street performers and artists. Everything is just what u expect of today's Rome !! Make sure you don't miss it. Plan half a lazy day here. Have wine. Local food and enjoy the atmosphere.

This has to be one of the most beautiful piazza areas in Rome. It is spacious and surrounded by fantastic cafes and restaurants. Well worth a visit indeed.

It is hidden piazza :) because it is behind the big buildings, and narrow streets without sign but it was very beautiful...

I deeply enjoyed walking along the piazza , and admire its 3 fountains , especially the biggest one called " fountain of four rivers" , I liked also the small fountain with its statues .. There is a fabulous cafe in... More

What Place des Vosges is for Paris, is Piazza Navona for Rome: the most beautiful square of the city. And when you are there you must treat yourself on the great Tartufo-icecream: it's delicious (every mouthful of it) and when one is sitting there on the Piazza Navona, enjoying the view and the tourists, one forgets straight away that it...

Interesting by day or night and in the centro area and it's attractions. The fountains there are impressive and the palaces stunning. A nice place for evening dinger ( though more expensive than other areas) but worth watching the parade of peOple, entertainers, artists markets and fountains by night.
