The fountain is beautiful, and best to be visited early in the morning when it is not that crowded. Sit down on one of the stonebenches and enjoy the piazza and the sculpture.

Piazza Navona is worth visiting purely to enjoy the hustle and bustle of the street artist, the pop up stalls and the restaurants that line the square, and of course the fountains in the middle are worth a visit, just to admire the beautiful design and appreciate the history.

went there by accident really, while walking around without a plan, and it was very pleasant, spacious and not as crowded as the Trevi fountain.

If you are a Bernini fan, or if you just admire sculpture and architecture, you must see this fountain in the heart of Piazza Navona. Each of the figures represents one of the great rivers of the time; what's so remarkable about each one is the emotional expressiveness of each figure. Bernini was atypical. His goal was not to make... More

It is located in Piazza Navona. Our visit was a part of the "Angels and Demons" tour. The tour guide, Louisa, told a very magnificent story about this piazza and the Fountain of Four Rivers, and the drama that was going on around it. It's a must see site and it would be great if you could take a tour... More

The fountain itself was really pretty and interesting but I could not properly appreciate it because people kept trying to sell me stuff which I clearly didn't want or need. Try visiting really early in the morning because that might minimise this.

The fountain has a magical mistic about it and the surrounding Piazza Narvonne is one to savour. Surrounded by cafes and artists, it has a real welcoming feel about it, apart from the constant barage of street sellers annoyingly trying to sell you tat.
