  • Beautiful and large fountain in the middle of a lovely and lively piazza. Even in rain, there is almost always a group of people standing near it and taking pictures. But for good reason. Well worth the visit.
  • Situated in the center of the Navona circus, a beautifully detailed work of art. A still functioning fountain. Area is lovely as well.
  • Beautiful. Roma is so full of magic. I think every fountain, and square is just amazing! See you soon Roma!
  • Beautiful. Wonderful place to people watch, sit down on a bench and have a snack.
  • Amazing fountain located in the Piazza Navona just outside Sant'Agnese in Agone. Well worth a visit if you are heading towards the Trevi Fountain.
