Piazza Navona - Review
Piazza Navona is one of the most popular town squares in Rome. This place has attracted a lot of media attention in the form of films. Numerous movies, the most recent of which include the film adaptation of the international best seller by Dan Brown, Angels and Demons, have had a section dedicated to this square.
Being rich in architectural and artistic marvels, this square is one of the best places where people can get a glimpse of the baroque style of sculptures, mostly created by Bernini. Among the many attractions located in this place, the Fountain of the Four Rivers or the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi is one of the most popular.
In the present day, the plaza is a popular tourist destination which can most certainly be considered to be one of the must see Rome attraction, if not for the sculptures and architecture, then certainly for the plentitude of modern art that can be on display by local artists.

Piazza Navona, Rome Reviews
According to our Tour Guide (which was fantastic) this is the former Roman "Olympic" Stadium. Once you stand in the middle of it looking at the perimeter and the 3 wonderful fountains (especially the famous World Rivers fountain) you can almost imagine what it was like competing in the "Olympic" games. There are fabulous outdoor Cafe's that ring the Piazza Navona and we couldn't help ourselves to have lunch there 4 times while we were in Rome. Street musicians, watercolor artists, trinket peddlers, it's all there too. Busy place but another must see in Rome. Will add a picture when i use my other computer later.
Beautiful and magical. Must be one of the most impressive squares in the world. You must visit the square at the times of the day. Obviously a bit tough during summer mornings but afternoons and evening are great. Use google maps to find a decent restaurant in the square. They’re all tourist traps but still worth the experience. We found one with decent ranking on google maps and had dinner there. In the afternoon and evening the square gets filled with street artists - really recommended to take your time when you’re there. Remember you’re also 5 minutes walk from another incredible monument - the Pantheon.
This is a cool place to check out when in Rome. There is a lot of cool thing happening in the Piazza. When we were here there was local bands playing and lots of people sitting around having a drinks and good time. On the weekends in the late afternoon/evening you will find many artists gathering here and selling their paintings (I did not find any canvas paintings anywhere else in Rome). We bought two beautiful paintings here (1 - Spanish steps; 2 - St Peters Basilica + Bridge of Angels). The selection is good, there are many others. Worth the visit.
Incredibly impressive piazza. You round the corner and wham ahead of you is some of the most impressive architecture and art sculptures. The square is always busy and you will be approached by a number of people touting their goods like selfie sticks etc. Best to say no and move on. Make sure you try find a quiet area and people watch. The restaurants surrounding the square looked decent but there will be more authentic places in walking distance.
A place where you can actually feel the Rome. Just sit there and enjoy. Best timing is evening, where the sun goes down and you can feel the lights glowing slowly. Music and fountain best combination. There are few people making live portrait, paintings etc.. Various restaurant and coffee shops nearby. Beautiful place.
