Maybe on a rainy day, when there are no crowds, this could be properly appreciated. It is clearly an impressive fountain.

The Piazza Navona is beautiful with its three fountains, but it is crowded with tourists, restaurants take advantage with expensive food and drinks, lots of buskers which are great, artists showing their work and if there is a way to make money, then it is being exploited. So sadly this lovely fountain is spoilt by being located in a very... More

As good as if not better than the more famous Trevi fountain. Outtanding sculptures and set in the most beautiful square in Rome. For those walking through Rome this is an absolute must. A short distance from the Panthenon and en route to the Castello. You can easily spend a few hours in this square.

Been here more than once but it never fails to take my breath away, just a shame it is so crowded. Some of the tourists can be quite rude, but definately not to be missed

Just a fountain in a square, but a good place to take five minutes rest and soak up some architecture

Very great fountain. It’s very high, but all beauty is lower. Sculptures are very beautiful, some people would even say that they are extraordinary, and such fountains like in Rome You will not see somewhere else. There are similar of course, but they are hors concours.

This fountain is in one of the most famous squares, Piazza Navona. The whole piazza is worth a visit. There's always activity and artists in the square. The fountain itself is an amazing work of art, and you need to walk around it slowly to appreciate all the detail. Don't forget to visit St. Agnes church, right behind the fountain,... More

Interesting piece of sculpture. Very over the top but definitely a great centre piece to Piazza Navona. Fun fact- the statue facing the church is supposedly worried that the church is going to collapse on him

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.
