Rome has no shortage of stunning squares adorned with lavish fountains, but Piazza Navona is arguably the city’s best. Located in the heart of Ancient Rome—built on the site of an ancient stadium that was paved over in the 15th Century (hence, its long, oval shape)—the piazza boasts a trio of imposing Classical fountains, including the Fountain of the Four Rivers, memorable for the obelisk rising from its midst. One of Rome’s liveliest squares, filled with street performers, musicians and artists, it’s a special place to stroll, or simply kick back, and take in all the lyrical sights and sounds.
Absolutely beautiful at night. Illuminated fountain in the center of the piazza. Lots of open air cafes, couples having romantic meetings, street entertainers and vendors. Cafes down every side street. If I could I would have spent every night there.
We fell in love with this beautiful piazza three years ago and were slightly disappointed, on our return, to discover it being filled with artificial snow for the filming of an advertisement! Bernini's stunning fountains were unaffected, though, as were the lovely buildings. Still magical.
Loved this place- we had dinner at one of the restaurants and a small music group came and played during most of the meal, you could hear them throughout the piazza. Very picturesque, as is all of Rome. Also has a decent selection of gelato shops. I found it very interesting to read in a nearby museum that this piazza is the site of a former stadium- read about it, it's pretty cool!
A beautiful square in the heart of Rome! Great fountains and there is always live entertainment in the form of street bands or buskers. It has a fantastic vibe!
The Piazza Navona should on your itinerary to see its fountain and enjoy the ambiance of the place. You could have a drink or food and relax when listening at street music. It is Rom at is best.
Thank you. We'll get back to you as soon as possible.
