Piazza Navona, Rome, Province of Rome, 00186

The Basics

With its ornate churches and palaces, lively restaurants, and riot of street vendors and performers, Piazza Navona is one of the most popular public spaces in Rome. Private and hop-on-hop-off tours of Rome’s most famous landmarks generally include a stop in Piazza Navona, as do themed tours of classical Roman or Baroque sights. In addition to this important square, skip-the-line Rome highlights tours may include the Colosseum, Vatican (and Sistine Chapel), and Trevi Fountain. You can opt for a walking or electric bike tour, or see the piazza as part of a food tour that also stops at the Campo de’ Fiori market and cafés and gelato shops.

Rome: walking tour Piazza Navona, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon
The tour was great. Very informative and our guide was extremely personable and made the overall experience wonderful. All the small bits of knowledge not only about the big monuments, but smaller points throughout the way, really made the city come to life, and are things you would never discover on your own. Absolutely worth the investment. You won’t regret it.

It is a beautiful walking tour for someone that has not been in Rome before so it would help to get familiar with the city must seen, not recommended if you know your way around

The Oval Square

The oblong-shaped Piazza Navona was built on the site of the ancient Stadium of Domitian, where citizens of Rome would watch games and races in the 1st century AD. The stadium may be gone, but the unusual shape of the space remains today, marked by three Baroque fountains: Bernini’s central masterpiece flanked by two smaller fountains by Giacomo della Porta at each end.
