Really enjoyed seeing this beautiful Bernini fountain. Would recommend visiting during the day and in the evening when it is illuminated. Lots of places to eat in the piazza but they are a bit pricey!

So cool to think that the Romans ran chariot races here! and don't forget to visit the part where "the talented Mr. Ripley" movie was shot.... Were there others? Lined with great restaurants and bars. Great for people watching, and ogh the fountain is cool too.

When I was in Rome in 2014, this was one of the spots that I wanted to be sure to see, mainly because it was one of the main locations for the Dan Brown novel - "Angel's & Demons". I took the Hop On/Hop Off bus and the last stop I made was to get off near the Castel Sant’... More

This is my favorite fountain in Italy! It is a Bernini masterpiece! The location in Piazza Navonna is very crowded and there are many artists trying to sell paintings, but it is well worth braving the crowds to see this work of art!

Nice area, good restaurants to sit and drink a beer and people watch. Artist were removed by the government so it's pretty empty here now.

We were visiting in what is in my opinion one of Rome's most beautiful squares namely Piazza Navona and The Fountain Of the Four Rivers is without a shadow of a doubt the best looking and most famous of the three fountains to be found here especially as your eye is drew to the huge Egyptian obelisk towering over the...

Loved the experience. Very crowded. The gushing of the water and the magnitude of the fountain is amazing.

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.
