- Piazza NavonaMember ofWellnessLocal CultureBudget Travelers+ 7Jul 04, 2012
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:

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:

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:

Piazza is one of the main historic plazas in Rome featuring fountains and monuments. The open square means it can get pretty lively and crowded, especially at night. The scene is atmospheric with diners eating outside of cafes and restaurants and shops selling an assortment of goods.Recommended for:

The most elegant and intriguing square in Rome, it was built exactly on the ruins of the Domitian Stadium of ancient Rome, which could seat up to 50,000 spectators. It is endowed with three magnificent baroque fountains, of which the most famous is the Fountain of the Four Rivers (Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi), designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. It is the meeting place of artists and painters. It is a lively square, famous for its cafes and restaurants.Recommended for:

Wonderful large area for architecture, food, street artists, musicians, people watching, and shopping! Both day and night life are two different creatures but worth watching. A great historic place, we used this many times as a easy meeting place through our trip. Cool all around.

I had some pretty bad service at a restaurant that kind of hit me in a bad way, combined with the fatigue of walking all day and eating something with too much fat and salt (I still love you, porchetta, but we should probably be fair-weather friends).
Piazza Navona is beautiful enough to wash any bad feelings away.
It is my favorite piazza in Rome, with the Museo di Roma on one end, the grand Sant'Agnese in Agone in the middle and shops all around, it's a place full of people and fountains and fun. Bernini's Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi is breathtaking, and I could spend hours just circling it, listening to all the music coming from street performers throughout the square.
It is Disneyland for anyone that loves old-world culture.Recommended for:

I wen to this Piazza with my friend at 1:00am and there was no one there at all, just the three magnificently lit fountains. so we took advantage to take a long photo-shoot session. I don't know how it's like during the day but it's definitely worth to pass by at any time.Recommended for:
