"Piazza in the heart of Rome" Piazza Navona Tip by freddie18

Piazza Navona, Rome: 173 reviews and 300 photos


Piazza Navona: The square is best for people watching. Not only that, it is very close to Pantheon being in the western side and the spot where street artist show their wares. There are many restaurants around the piazza which looks expensive, and they are! A variety of shops, in some cases specialty shops and lots of bars and cafes. I sat on concrete benches within the square and had spent an hour or so, with young excursionist wandering around, who I guess are students on educational tour being watched by their teacher as a leader. Had our packed lunch while watching one of the fountains in the centre of the piazza called the Four Rivers. There's one thing you need not forget. Visit the baroque church dedicated to St. Agnes which is nearby. These simple things I did, made wonders. The way of life is very different. It's interesting!
