The Piazza Navona is considered by many to be Rome’s most beautiful Piazza. Built on the site of the 1st century A.D., Stadium of Domitian, and was transformed into the most celebrated example of Baroque Roman architecture during the pontificate of Innocent X, whose family palace, the Palazzo Pamphili, faced the piazza. It features important sculptural and architectural creations, such as the famous Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi or Fountain of the Four Rivers (1651) by Gian Lorenzo Bernini, topped by the Obelisk of Domitian, the church of Sant'Agnese in Agone by Francesco Borromini, and the aforementioned Pamphili palace, that accommodates the long gallery designed by Borromini and frescoed by Pietro da Cortona.
At the southwest end of the piazza is the ancient “speaking” statue of Pasquino. Erected in 1501, Romans would routinely leave lampooning political or derogatory social comments attached to the statue.
During its history, the piazza hosted theatrical events and from 1652 until 1866, when the festival was suppressed, it was flooded on every Saturday and Sunday in August in elaborate celebrations of the Pamphilj family. The pavement level was raised in the 19th century and the market was moved again in 1869 to the nearby Campo de' Fiori.
This is truly Rome’s most characteristic and exciting area, with an uncompromising choice of monuments within walking distance. Shop at the daily open market of Campo de’Fiori or dine out in the Historic Jewish Quarter, walk to Piazza Navona, the Pantheon, the Trevi Fountain and the lively Trastevere Quarter which is just a five minutes across the foot bridge. Also close to the Historic Center’s main transport hub in Largo Argentina, with express buses to Termini and tram service directly to the Trastevere station and on-going connections to the Airport.
Well serviced, there are also a number of supermarkets, gyms and shops nearby. Truly an excellent location and an oasis of quiet and beauty from which to explore Rome's multilayered historical district.
