In Rome you don't look at history but live in history
Mar 2021
One of the most characteristic squares in Rome.
Built in 86 AD; The three splendid Baroque fountains immediately catch your eye:
Fountain of the Four Rivers in the center: it was Pope Innocent X who decided to build it in 1651, entrusting the work to Bernini. With its four statues representing the Nile, the Ganges, the Danube and the Rio de la Plata and in the center the Agonal obelisk was raised which came from distant Egypt and was decorated in Rome under Domitian (1st century AD) with written inscriptions in hieroglyphics and with a representation of the emperor between two deities.
Fountain of Neptune: south of the square, also called the Fontana del Moro, whose central figure would resemble Bernini, built by Giacomo della Porta in 1654.
Fountain of Neptune: built in the 16th century. Neptune was sculpted in the 19th century by Antonio della Bitta.
On the side we see the church of Sant’Agnese in Agone dominating the west side of the square, it was built in the seventeenth century, ordered by Innocenzo X and produced by Girolamo, Rainaldi and Borromini.
This square maintains the shape of the Domitian stadium, whose arches still exist under the street. The cobblestones of the square were trampled on by the apostles of the sixteenth century, such as Saint Ignatius of Loyola or Saint Francis Xavier.
As a curiosity we can say that until the mid-nineteenth century, in summer the water outlets of the three fountains were closed and the central part of the square flooded, becoming 'The Lake of Piazza Navona'.

Great Urban Design: Piazza Navona, Rome
Jan 2021
Most people think of visiting the Colosseum or the Vatican when in Rome. They are of course worth visiting, however, one of the best places to visit is its Piazza Navona. I visited this marvel of Urban Design while backpacking through Italy, Egypt and Greece as a college student. It is easy to do a walking tour of Rome as you navigate through its rich history and tourist attractions. My tour began with Piazza del Popolo, followed by the Spanish Steps, Piazza di Spagna, Via Condotti, the Trevi Fountain, the Pantheon and finally to Piazza Navona, where I enjoyed a wonderful meal with drinks surrounded by tourists and native folks.

BEAUTY and SPLENDOR to summarize
Nov 2020
Pioneering cranberries show us how spiders can be pigs? The shrewd lime comes from a careful pineapple. Their cow was, in this moment, a thoughtful kangaroo? The goat is a dog! The spiders could be said to resemble kind-hearted pineapples.

Incredible place
Nov 2020
It’s always an odd thing to me that anyone should spend time reading a review to such a place as timeless and memorable as this. Shall I recite its beauty and splendor? I won’t, I’ll simply use the word BEAUTY and SPLENDOR to summarize this once in a lifetime Roman/Italian iconic stop on a map full of wonders. Hope to see you here or there! It’s truly exceptional.

A huge square with a special history
Feb 2020
One of the must-see sites in Rome. The square has a number of beautiful fountains and is surrounded by many restaurants and cafes. Nice to hang out here day and night. Close to several other well-known sites, so you can combine several sites with a hike.

A must see!
Jul 2020 • Couples
Beautiful piazza in Rome! Architecture and fountains are just spectacular! The Bernini’s fountain “Four Rivers” is truly a masterpiece! Usually it’s full of people (passing by, hanging out by the fountain or dining out at the restaurants in the square), but during the pandemic we witnessed the emptiness, which was an unusual thing but allowed to absorb the beauty of the place in peace and quiet. The photos without crowds were refreshing!
