Piazza Navona, Rome: 173 reviews and 300 photos
This is for me most beautiful square of Rome!
The history of the square goes back to Ancient Rome, here there was the Circus of the Emperor Domitian. Today the square is surrounded by old houses but in the past here there were great steps of circus.
Here were carried out mock sea battles, public shows, games etc.
The buildings that surround the square was constructed between the 1600's and 1700's. Pope Innocent X began to arrange the public square,with the recostructio of Phampilj Palace and the church of S.Agnese.
For me the most beautiful thing of Piazza Navona is the central Fountain of the Rivers built by the famous BERNINI.. On the top of rocks sit the giants symbolizing the rivers of the four Continents: the Nile, the Ganges, the Danube and the River of the Plata.
