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.

Probably the most beautiful square in Rome. It has romantic fountains and there are street artists too which make this place special during the day and the night. There is a number of restaurants at the square and several other places and buildings worth a visit such as a church. Take your time to walk round the square and enjoy the atmosphere that will bring you back here one day again.
Cute plaza with great places to eat and shop. Or just enjoy the fountains. I believe there is a way to get below it and see the original Hippodrome, but haven't made it down there.
Well, yeah, you're in Rome, right! So go! It really is amazing! So much detail. You can study the details for months. Free but everything around you--Cafe, street vendors and high designer shops, are very expensive. The large restaurant right across the street charges €8 for a cappuccino!! Wow!! Any cafe and restaurant by law must allow you to use the Toilette. You can walk to Spanish Steps from here. If you're driving, park at the Borghese underground parking garage. Very reasonable price and from there you can walk to Spanish Steps and then to Navona Piazza. Take lots of pictures and remember June-September is very crowded. We went back in very late November and it was slim crowds.
This piazza had the cutest little Christmas carnival for kids, with seriously retro fair games and a gorgeous carousel. Also, the fountain is hilariously great. So much drama.
A must see when you visit Rome. During winter the piazza is converted into a market where you can acquire anything from roasted chestnuts, to the expected touristy memorabilia. In summer you miss out on some of the festive season's snacks- instead you're more likely to be approached by informal vendors selling keepsakes from Africa. The fountains / sculptures by Bernini (1651) remain the main attraction. Do yourself a favour, and go experience it. It really is quite something to behold.
