Obelisco Agnonale is located in the Fountain of Four Rivers on Piazza Navona. The 16M high obelisk has been made during the rule of Emperor Domitian. Worth to have a look at the Egyptian obelisk during your travel to Piazza Navona.

This obelisk is 16.5m high but when combined with the fountain, reaches a height of 30m to the top of the dove. It dates to the rule of Emperor Domitian and copies an Egyptian obelisk.

The Piazza has three fountain and an Obelisk. A nice place for a short stop and to refresh from the usual tiring walking tour. Another attraction while in Rome. More obelisk and colonnade seen in the city.

This obelisk arises from the center of the Fontana dei Fiumi in the Piazza Navona, located in the center of the Piazza. Great location for photos. There are benches located around the fountain so you can just sit and admire this great fountain.

It is the obelisk over the famous fountain in the middle of the Piazza Navona. It is nice to see as you will likely be visiting the Piazza anyway.

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
