  • For me, you can keep the Trevi fountain; this is the most impressive fountain in Rome and perhaps the most beautiful in the world. It is quite beyond me how some reviewers on TripAdvisor have rated it...  more »
  • Just around the overpriced restaurant, I recommend side alleys. The fountain is beautiful, beautifully... I recommend to visit...

  • Place Navone very large with its pretty oval shape. To do without hesitation to discover the two magnificent fountains, the colors of the buildings. Very touristy place with lots of restaurants. It is really nice to walk around and stop there to enjoy the atmosphere.

  • We walked from our hotel to see this exquisitely beautiful fountain. You may see several other fountains, and we saw 7 total. We liked this one and the Trevi fountain the best. It gets very crowded so get there in the early hours to get some cool pics.
  • Amazing fountain. Stunning masterpice with and Oblisk in the center. Beautiful place to hang out with family/friends and spend some time.
  • An astounding work of Baroque sculpture. When we were in Rome, we had the pleasure of renting a place a few minutes' walk from Piazza Navona, and we visited this fountain frequently. The sheer energy and strength conveyed in the sculpting is marvelous. This fountain was commissioned to represent the power and reach of the Church, and that sense of majesty and grandeur is evident in every artistic choice made.
  • Wonderful food with very good staff. Always on top of things. Must go if you're in Rome!
  • Such a magnificent historical building. Salute to preserve this ancient city. Every single corner is amazing. Was perfect weather back then may16 to enjoy every inches.
