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.

Three of the "Top 10" Must See Sites in Rome
Excellent walking tour which covers three of the "top 10" best sites to see in Rome. We saw it in December (some rain) but very good views of the fountains with only 10-25% of the normal summer crowds. Tour guide was exmplary and even took us to a nice coffee shop to get a needed expresso! Highly recommended.

Skip the Line: Colosseum and Ancient Rome Small-Group Walking Tour Including Pantheon and Piazza Navona
We really enjoyed our walking tour of the Colosseum, Palatine Hill, Pantheon and Piazza Navona with our English guide, Andrada. The four hour tour was well-paced and provided ample breaks when needed. Our guide, Andrada was excellent. Her knowledge and love of Roman history was evident and infectious. She was a wonderful teacher and we learned so much during our time with her. A great way to learn about what you are looking at!

Great tour of the Colosseum and Roman Forum. Didn't get a chance to go inside the Pantheon due to the long line, but this was an enjoyable way to spend 3 hours in Rome.

Tasty Roman Dinner Food Tour around Piazza Navona, Campo Marzio & Jewish Ghetto
I really loved this food tour and would definitely recommend and be doing it again. I particularly enjoyed the fried artichokes and the cannoli but everything was particularly delicious. Our guide had lots of great information to share and she was extremely friendly too.

The eternal city is everything we hoped for. Our family of 4 toured with Stephanie and it was fabulous. Small size, informative, beautiful weather (65 degrees in Dec) and just the right pace. Ask for Stephanie - she also gives tours of Vatican City!

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.
