Nice fountain

Very delicate masonry and impressive centrepiece to Piazza Navona. It's really busy right by the fountain and you need to keep your wits about you.

For an art-lover, this place is must-visit. Its simply gorgeous. I did not prepare to no visit it, but when I just stumbled to it, I felt I how foolish I was. Such spots really make Rome the center of Earth in Renaissance.

Walk around and view this from every angle. The detail is amazing. Examine the head of the horse and then walk to the other side of the fountain and view the horse's hind quarters. Every time I view the fountain I find a new feature. Also, get a gelato at the shop right behind the fountain. I think it is... More

We had the chance to visit the Piazza Navona on a windy day, so the water from the fountains gave us a hard time while trying to get a photo and resting our burning feet. The Piazza and the Four Rivers by Bernini is only 5 minutes away from the Pantheon to the east and the Vatican to the north.... More

We had dinner in a thunderstorm under an umbrella overlooking the piazza, and it was the best night of the trip. In the sunshine too this place is a must. A wonderful taste of Renaissance Italy.

When we visited this fountain in the 2015 new year holiday, it was closed for construction. No water, no light, all ugly. :( But it seems to be free and would look beautiful, if it was open.

We went there every night, there is always something happening here in the Piazza Novonna. The fountain is the focal point and the street artist's are always active. Sit and have a meal and watch the world go by.

Wonderful! Monumental fountain on Piazza Navona with two smaller (fountain of Neptune and Moor fountain) in the same square. Statues of Danube, Nile, Ganges and Plate.

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighborhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighborhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
