“Fountain of the four Rivers, a must see!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

Plan on seeing this fountain, this is one of the most beautiful squares in Rome. The fountain is pretty awesome no matter what side you look at- if you want a beautiful square to rest and people watch, come here.

“Piazza Navona's 4 Rivers fountain”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2012

Interesting sculptures showing 4 rivers known in 1600's. Uruguay's Rio de la Plata is the surprise river only because other big rivers like the Amazon had not been discovered yet. It can be on the walking route to the Pantheon& Trevi Fountain.
An interesting square where artists set up easels and offer paintings for sale. If you have time check out the ruins of the original entrance to this piazza when it ws a race track A.D. 80.

“Ah to see Bernini at his best !!!!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2012

If you are a Bernini fan this is for you,it is magnificant.My favorite time is to go in the very early morning and admire it from all angles.They represent the four rivers,Danube,the Ganges,the Nile,and the Plate,the four figures represent the four continents Europe,Asia,Africa,and America.There ar two other small fountains on either side in the piazza Fountain of the moor,the figure being Triton,and the other is Neptune Fountain.Bring your camera,and take a stroll through this beautiful piazza to admire the fountain of the four rivers,and if oyu are an Angels and Demons fan this is the fountain in one of the scenes!!!
