Create an itinerary including Piazza Navona
Noisy and vibrant, Piazza Navona is the hub of artistic and commercial activity in this part of the city. Known for its Baroque architecture, alfresco restaurants, ornate fountains, and street artists, the square attracts visitors from around the world. The centerpiece is an elaborate fountain--representing the rivers Nile, Ganges, Danube, and Plate-- created by Baroque sculptor Gianlorenzo Bernini. A massive, ancient obelisk tops the fountain. Artists Giacomo della Porta and Antonio della Bitta sculpted the two smaller fountains here. The plaza was built in the first century on the site of a former arena where ancient Romans came to watch various competitions.

  • beware of peddlers trying to sell you all kinds of bracelets. They are all your best friend. If you want bracelets, be sure to haggle.

  • Amazing scenery will greet you around all four corners of this Piazza... social environment for people who you'll see dancing, singing, performing different arts and just having a good time next to the ocean. A lot of people also take their dogs for walks here, which is nice. We also saw a lot of people jogging or exercising in groups on the waters edge. Always helps to have a nice view while training. You will also see alot of sailboats and smaller boats on this side of the harbor. Water taxi's are also something to experience. Helping people get across the harbors waters with no effort. Awesome place and a must visit, especially if you have a guide to give you the detail and historical facts about this place. Very cool to see and experience
  • Another worthy visit in Rome. To be fair, the fountains, monuments and cafes are not quite as famous as some other parts of Rome but the sum of each together is worth a visit. Have a drink at one of the bars and enjoy the world going buy. It's a popular tourist spot so will get very busy.
