- Piazza NavonaJan 10, 2014
The most famous square of Baroque Rome!! It follows the plan of the ancient Domitian's Stadium of the 1st century. You can rest at one of the nice café and enjoy the beautiful fountains and the church of Bernini and Borromini.Recommended for:

One of Rome's characteristic piazzas, Piazza Navona has three distinctive fountains, and was once used as a water filled stadium for fake naval battles. It's usually packed with tourists and vendors selling cheesy paintings, but, like much of touristy Rome, maintains an air of mystery and magic late at night.Recommended for:

Piazza Navone is one of the alive hearts of Rome. it is wide in a really strategic position. Bernini works are the main characters of the square, even though there is a little mess beacause of local sellers of souvenirs. you could start from here to take a walk in Via del Governo Vecchio for shopping and eating something.

Photogenic square - very beautiful. Small alleys lead to old city blocks. Good place to sit down at cafe and just watch people go by. The horse carriage ride are ridiculously expensive - be sure to haggle. This is often crowded in day time.

Ah, Piazza Navona! It's so beautiful and really exudes all the charm of Rome. Bustling with tourists and locals, street musicians, artists and more. Check it out at least once if you are in the city. The fountains are breathtaking (but hang on to your valuables as pickpockets are all over the place). This is my most favorite piazza in all of Rome. When you picture Rome in your head, this is the place you are thinking of. You won't be disappointed.Recommended for:

The Piazza is a must visit. It is a feast for the eyes with three fountains and Borromini's design of the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone. There are a lot of cheap goods for sale and not such great places to eat, but still it is worth a visit for the beauty of the design and architecture.Recommended for:

I love the Piazza Navona, especially during the week in the early spring and winter when there are fewer tourists. The restaurants in the square are a bit touristy, but it is nice a place to soak up the atmosphere. The history of the city can be seen in this piazza, especially the "Four Rivers Fountain" by Bernini and the Chiesa di Sant'Agnese in Agone that stands in front of it. This piazza is an expression of their artistic rivalry in the city. There are two other fountains at opposite ends of the piazza, and there are also some museums, cafes and shops nearby.Recommended for:

Piazza Navona is full of tourists during the holiday season. The square is converted into a seasonal fair around this time. Think holiday treats, ornaments, knick-knacks, paintings, street performers and gypsies. Beware of pick-pockets! The theme is the Feast of Epiphany and features the Epiphany witch which is a version of Father Christmas in Italy.
Piazza Navona has long been a meeting place for all Romans. There are open-air cafes, restaurants, a museum, and a church that flank this square. The piazza is home to Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers (1647-1651). Bernini's rival Barromini was originally given the commission but it was passed on to Bernini by Pope Innocent X. The Church of Sant'Agnese in Agone (1670) has a front facade that was designed by Barromini. The piazza displays the best of Baroque art in all of Rome.
Our Contiki group met here before moving on to other destinations within the city. Since it is located in Central Rome, it's easy to find on a map and via roads. The Fountain of the Four Rivers is quite beautiful and the there's an obelisk that is located nearby. It's amazing to see something that has survived several hundred years and probably will continue to survive after we are long gone. Simply amazing and worth the visit.Recommended for:
