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 best morning in Rome
Learning about and following the aqueduct to the many beautiful fountains was great. The tour of the inside of the Patheon was excellent.

My wife and I had a wonderful experience on this tour during our recent vacation in Rome! Our guide was extremely knowledgable, personable, and clearly very passionate about the history and culture of this beautiful city. Having such a knowledgable guide to lead us through the Colosseum, Forum, and other important areas in the city was a great way to see the main sights and make the most of our time in Rome. We highly recommend this tour!

3 in 1 Cooking Class in Piazza Navona: Fettuccine Ravioli and Tiramisu
This was one of my favorite experiences in Rome. We had 3 instructors for our group. Easy to follow directions and hands on assistance when needed. I especially appreciated that they took photos during the class to be shared later along with the recipes via email. Best of all, we got to enjoy the fruits of our labor afterwards. Delizioso!

Great experience overall learning to make pasta and dessert, then get to savor your creation. Class taking place in one of Piazza Navona's restaurants was a plus. Great social area with beautiful fontanas (fountains).

Maria was very nice and knowledgeable. She was a bit late and wasn’t wearing a blue shirt like in the meeting instructions when made the start a bit stressful. I would recommend updating the meeting instructions and include a phone number on what’s app people can contact to get ahold of the tour guide. This however was a great way to be introduced to the 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.
