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.

Best of Rome Walking Tour
Our tour guide Jabar (not sure about the spelling) provided great historical context and lots of interesting stories about everything we saw. It was apparent that he is very knowledgeable about Rome and shared his love of the city with us.

3 in 1 Cooking Class in Piazza Navona: Fettuccine Ravioli and Tiramisu
This cooking class was definitely the best thing to do while in Rome! What better way to get acquainted with Italian culture than learning how to make delicious food! Hasan was such a great and personable chef/instructor! He made it very easy to follow and gave us one on one help when we needed it. I would definitely recommend doing this cooking class with Hasan, he even took photos for us throughout the entire class! It was so worth the money, and would probably do it again!! Thank you Hasan for the great experience!

Fantastic tour! We were only in Rome for two days, and I really feel that this tour was just extensive enough to give us great exposure to most of the important historical sites without being too overwhelming. Not too short, not too long. Just right!!

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.
