    Impressive fountains.
    An impressive piazza with three beautiful fountains in the Historical Center. A 5 minute walk from the Pantheon. There are many cafes and restaurants (often overpriced) fronting the plaza and it looks wonderful in the evening. Should be visited!

    Another iconic must see in Rome
    Very beautiful place, not too far from Pantheon and Trevi Fountain. There are three nice fountains in the centre and very good festive environment all around. We visited this place during different times of the day as we were staying close by and it's beauty is different during the day and in the night. As this place is open 7x24 feel free to visit at your convenience and you won't regret!

    Best Piazza in Rome
    This is my favourite Piazza in Rome. There is so much to look at and there is always a great atmosphere. Its main feature are the magnificent fountains. There are plenty of restaurants and cafes to savour the piazza and watch the world go by.

    Lively atmosphere
    The best piazza in Rome !!! It is such a wonderful place to just sit and enjoy the atmosphere around. A lot of people perform there and there is a beautiful church (Sant'Agnese) which is also a must see when you are here. We enjoyed out time a lot.

    Piazza Perfecto
    The Piazza Navona has not changed much since my first visit in 1979 with the exception of the prices! The restaurants surrounding the square are all now pretty pricey and way above my pay scale! The Piazza is famous for its 3 distinctive fountains with the centrepiece being Bernini's Fountain of the four rivers dating from 1651 and it's central obelisk. The other 2 fountains are by Porta with the Fontana Del Moro 1575 & the Fountain of Neptune 1574. All have had additions/alterations over the centuries. The Piazza is a fine example of Roman baroque architecture and dates from early AD but underwent major changes from 1644 under Pope Innocent X whose family home fronted the square.

    Fun square
    A fun vibrant square in the heart of Rome. Here you will find restaurants, bars, churches, fortune tellers and fountains. The centerpiece is of course, the Fountain of the Four Rivers. Definitely worth a visit by day and night.

    Expansive piazza with beautiful fountains
    The Piazza Navona is a wonderful expansive piazza that epitomizes the atmosphere of Rome. It has the baroque architecture and Bernini’s Fountain of the Four Rivers and an openness that is very appealing. It is near many restaurants, three of which we dined at during our extended weekday in Rome following a Viking Ocean Cruise. We strolled through it several times during our visit to Rome this past November.

    Probably the Most Famous Piazza in Rome
    This is probably the most famous Piazza in Rome. Large pedestrian open space full of baroque architecture marvels namely the Bernini's Four Rivers fountain. Full of street artists, performers and painters. Surrounded by restaurants and coffee shops. It is a place not to be missed once in Rome.

    loved it!
    I came here the morning that I arrived in Rome and had a great time. The piazza is stunning, as is the church inside. It's all free to visit and I had some lovely weather, too. Awesome place to spend a few hours enjoying magnificent architecture and food + drinks, which are served by several nice restaurants around the square. If you're visiting Rome, put Piazza Navona on your list for sure.

    Lovely area with beautiful fountains.
    This is one of my favorite places to visit in Rome. It was once a Roman arena but it is now filled with many restaurants and cafes ( a little expensive but worth it to get a drink and take in the sights ). There are three fountains with the center one being the most spectacular. It is also only a short walk to the Pantheon. I would definitely recommend a visit to the Piazza.

It was a shame this time that my favorite Piazza in Rome was pretty much completely under construction. It is such a historic and beautiful piazza, I wouldn't think that they would be working on both fountains at the same time, but they were.

Piazza Navona is one of the most amazing squares in Rome. Dating back to the 1st century AD when it was built as a stadium, today, the square is known for its beautiful sculptures and fountains. There are many charming cafes, restaurants, and shops, making it the perfect spot to relax and soak in the lively ambiance of Rome. A must visit.

Love the space but all the fountains were closed for updating. Unfortunately couldn’t really appreciate it. Will return next time.

Even for those with very limited time in Rome, Piazza Navona is a must. This is one of the best piazzas to visit in Rome. You can see a lot here in a short time.
There are three monumental fountains, two of which (Fountain of the Moor and The Fountain of Four Rivers) were designed by Bernini.
Whole walking tours are designed around seeing Bernini’s work in Rome and you can see two Bernini fountains here in the one piazza.
There are always street entertainers and ‘living statues’ - always fun for the kids.
Being a tourist spot, you do have to put up with hawkers who will try to press their goods onto you.
The piazza is surrounded by cafes and restaurants although we prefer to go down one of the side streets and find something a little removed from the heaving tourist zone. Just around the corner from the Fountain of the Moor is a great little wine bar, Cul-de-Sac and opposite it is one of our favourite small restaurants, Mimi e Coco.
A highlight of our time in Rome was going to a classical concert at the beautiful Baroque Church of Sant’Agnese in Agone. It was held in the small Borromini Sacristy which you don’t normally get access to. I have occasionally seen free concerts offered at the church but this one was ticketed and we were able to buy tickets at the door.

This is definitely worth visiting. It's a busy square, and I came in the late evening, but it was not too busy. You can simply walk around and view everything. It's quite nice.
