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.

  • 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!

  • Busy in the day but not at night. Great place to hang out, with many restaurants lining the area. Huge and fountains are gorgeous. Also a good link with many attravtions nearby.
