Not really worth an extra walk, but if you are in the neighborhood .... Close to a nice restaurant where members of parliament use to lunch, Osteria Contemporanea alle Quattro Fontaine. It looks like a snackbar but it you walk all the way to the back, there are several eating areas.

An unusual statue / fountain for its time, certainly worth a look and an admire noting the historical connections with the square itself.

The "Fountain of Four Rivers" representing four continents (Europe, America, Asia and Africa) and the major rivers that flow through them was designed by none other than Bernini and is a true masterpiece

Nice & that's it just because there are plenty of such fountains, carvings, statues etc. around in Rome. But otherwise yeah, it is good. Again - recommended only if you have luxurious time in Rome, otherwise definitely a skip.

The Fontana dei Quattro fiumi was yet ANOTHER nice discovery I happened upon. I must admit I stumbled on MANY wonderful sites while roaming Rome. This location was nice because it didn't have the massive crowds as some of the other sites.

It is an amazing sculpture made by the architect of Rome, Gianlorenzo Bernini and made famous by the book and the movie of Angels& Demons. It represent four rivers from the world and it is a very good spot to enjoy the view of the Piazza Navona

Staying around is the best option ever, if your in Rome try a walk just a midnight and breathe the romance of the fountain.

Staying in Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori

Neighbourhood Profile
Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a five-minute walk of each other, the Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa drivers, street vendors, merchants, and locals. There is no rhyme or reason to its winding streets and there's something to see around every corner, so take pleasure in a spontaneous wander.
