This is a famous 17th century church, which is located in the centre of the Piazza Navona. You will not miss it when visiting Piazza Navona Square. The structure of the church is amazing, it consists of brick and limestone and is supported by massive arched vaults. Note its interior is on a Greek-Cross plan which is emphasized by the... More

Another beautiful church located in front of the Piazza Navona. A popular church visited by tourists. Originally commissioned by the Pamphili family who also had a palazzo next door. Church is original site where St. Agnes was martyred in the ancient stadium of Domitian below the church. Designed by several architects, however Borromini designed the main sacristy. The church contains... More

We visited on Thursday evening specially to see the advertised concert. When we asked it had been cancelled. The inside of the church is quite spectacular.

This church went through a bunch of the greatest renaissance architects before being completed. Located in conjunction with the private palace of a Pope it served as the family chapel ... nice job if you can get it!

Another church we entered out of curiosity. Pictures are not allowed but it's a nice place to just sit and relax and take in the amazing city of Rome.

A small church. No pictures allowed. Beautiful cupola. A quick stop to see if your are in the area. Not a must see.

This may turn out to be a hidden gem of a beautiful Baroque church fronting on Piazza Navona since most eye will be focused on the Bernini fountain directly in front of it. But the design by Borromini will definitely surprise you from the inside. But once enter the church, you will find the wonderful interior of green and pink... More

We hadn't planned to visit this place but was curious when in Piazza Navona to see people streaming in and out of this place. We decided o explore and boy were we surprised o find such an amazing church inside. This definitely worth popping in to look at the amazing artworks.

Beautiful and richly decorated but the no photo policy knocks of a point. As usual with places with incoherent photo restrictions - no good pics to buy either. This is a short (and free) stop when you are visiting the square outside. it is well worth a 5-10 min look for sure. With a guide - probably a lot more.

Yet another beautiful church in Rome. Commissioned in 1652 by Pope Innocent X but completed in 1729. It has a fabulous frescoes and paintings and is well worth the time to visit.

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.
