Piazza Navona, Rome

4.6
Noisy and vibrant, Piazza Navona is the hub of artistic and commercial activity in this part of the city. Known for its Baroque architecture, alfresco restaurants, ornate fountains, and street artists, the square attracts visitors from around the world. The centerpiece is an elaborate fountain--representing the rivers Nile, Ganges, Danube, and Plate-- created by Baroque sculptor Gianlorenzo Bernini. A massive, ancient obelisk tops the fountain. Artists Giacomo della Porta and Antonio della Bitta sculpted the two smaller fountains here. The plaza was built in the first century on the site of a former arena where ancient Romans came to watch various competitions.

  • An iconic place in Rome. Must visit if you are in town for the first time! I really enjoy going there during the summer when it's warm outside, so that you can grab an ice cream from nearby, sit near the fountains and simply enjoy the moment. I highly recommend visiting this place.
  • The best place to stay as it is the closest to all attractions. There are plenty of good restaurants, cafes and bars around. Sure will come back here again. Lovely area.
