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.

Our walking tour was excellent as was our guide, Hector. I would highly recommend any tour given by Hector and offered by Viator. We have had several experience with Viator and all have been top notch.

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.

We were so lucky to have Andrada and her excellent knowledge and ability in explaining the colosseum and its ancient history. Much more informative than we expected. She let us feel like Romans! It is quite a walk from the colosseum to the Pantheon when the weather is warm!!

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.

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.
