It was nice to spend some time in this piazza. The fountain is very cool. Learn about the building to the west.

A classic fountain, but inspiring when you remember the tools available at the time it was constructed. Magnificent in scope and imagination. We had a private guide who explained all of the symbolism and representations. A must-see on any tour of Rome.

The history created by the icons embellished on the Four Rivers fountain. I had the pleasure of having a tour with a graduate of history and a seventh-generation Roma resident. Amazing.

The Piazza Navona is a social center with artists, musicians, locals, and tourists bustling about. The cafes and churches lining the track-shaped plaza (because in Ancient Roman times it was a stadium for athletic contests) are full of people and the atmosphere is magical. At its center is one of the most beautiful fountains imaginable and one of the most exuberant in Rome, a pulse point for the entire piazza.

Created by Bernini, the magnificent fountain features the four rivers - The Ganges, The Nile, The Plate, and the Danube. All beneath an obelisk. It was used as a location for the film "Angels and Demons" so many will recognize it. Come, enjoy, sit back, and enjoy the pulse of this lively piazza. And don't forget to visit the church just in front of the fountain dedicated to Santa Agnese who was martyred on this spot for refusing to marry a pagan.
