This fountain is a nice historical depiction of 4 parts of the world and the four major rivers. It sits in the centre of Piazza Navona. Talk a walk around the fountain to see it in its entirety.

Not sure why this is reviewed separately from Piazza Navona, of which this is an integral part, but of course, you must go to the piazza anyway, and see this - the great masterpiece by Bernini.

Apparently Rome is full of Bernini fountains, but you need a guide to point them out, and who knows some of the local history about them. The fountain of the four rivers was amazing. Such a great work of art.

We found this one quite by accident, as we were walking through Rome. It was amazing to see the sculptures everywhere. Worth a look!

Stunning fountain designed by Bernini in1651 and the highlight of this piazza. Take this in as you stroll around what was an ancient stadium and maybe take in a coffee just off the main piazza.

A nice fountain in the piazza navigate which is a great spot to grab a coffee and people watch. A lovely fountain that is lit and night and very pleasant though not the best fountain Rome has to offer. Busy tourist area but pleasant place to stroll and sit.

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.
