About Piazza Navona

Step right up to the magnificent Piazza Navona, Rome's grand stage of baroque artistry, buzzing nightlife, and centuries-old history that refuses to quit. 

Originally built on the site of the Stadium of Domitian in the 1st century A.D., this public spectacle has been entertaining Romans and travelers alike for centuries. Now, instead of athletic competitions, it's a competition of which café serves the best espresso or which street artist can draw the biggest crowd. The piazza is flanked by architectural marvels and crowned by three fountains that are nothing short of aquatic masterpieces, with Bernini's Fountain of the Four Rivers stealing the spotlight. 

This is where Rome's heart beats loudest, offering a daily show of life in all its vibrant, chaotic, and utterly enchanting forms. Whether you're here for the art, the ambiance, or simply to soak in the eternal buzz of Rome, Piazza Navona is where you'll find the city's soul dancing in the open air. Morning visits are peaceful, but it's at night that the piazza truly comes alive, transforming into a lively hub of diners, artists, and musicians.
