One of the many beautiful, amazing fountains in Rome. Full of history. Read about it ahead of time so you cab appreciate the artwork and symbolism. Many areas to shop and eat around here. We ended up walking by it many times on our way to and from other sites.

I don't think this is as popular as the Trevi Fountain, but in my mind it's even more impressive with the little street stalls surrounding it, making it every bit the stereotypical Italian Piazza

This is a lovely Piazza in Rome. In the centre is the fountain of Four rivers and at the two ends of the square are the Fountain of the Moor and the Fountain of Neptune. It is surrounded by little cafes and we had a delightful lunch on a rainy afternoon. There is also a church on the square.

A truly beautiful monument both at night and during the day. The piazza if full of life and a fun place to be.

Really great to see, Trevi was closed and in my opinion over rated. It's very busy but it was great to see!

This fountain is absolutely stunning! And the atmosphere from the square just adds to it's brilliance. I love visiting the Piazza Navona! Lovely to sit by the fountain and every time I seen something new on the fountain I hadn't noticed the time before.

A really lovely place to relax and enjoy the atmosphere with plenty of places to eat and people watch. It's not somewhere where you can spend all day but certainly spend a couple of hours to eat or drink and give those feet a little rest. Lovely atmosphere during the day and evening. Not much happening at night so early... More

We passed by here during our day tour. Just to see this is very relaxing itself. Get to know the history too. The place is a good place to sit and have coffee and enjoy. Great work of art!

Such grandeur is difficult to exceed! Magnificent and beautiful fountain in a magnificent square; the square is enormous and flanked by beautiful buildings. The church of Sant'Agnese in Agone by Francesco Borromini; the Pamphili palace, by Girolamo Rainaldi, that accommodates the long gallery designed by Borromini and frescoed by Pietro da Cortona. The fountain itself designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini.... More

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.
