During the Christmas season, Piazza Navona is packed with stalls selling toys, sweets and decorations for the nativity scene or Christmas tree, making it a favorite spot for children. Its unusual shape recalls the time of Domitian, who built a stadium for equestrian displays. The Fountain of the Rivers with the obelisk and the Fountain of the Moor with the God of the Sea are located in the center of the square and were both sculpted by Bernini.""

My first visit to Piazza Navona was quite a moment for me, I realized that it's a crossroads of the world. A guy from Holland was playing a guitar and an international crowd was hanging around singing pop songs in english. Lots of local romans hang around - and Paul Paolicelli points out that Rome may have it over Paris because of this place. But it's part of the whole Rome experience, and not without those pesky foreigners shoving roses or sunglasses in your face. Same goes for the Spanish Steps and Trevi fountain.
TAKE A NAP in the day and stay up for the passegiatta (evening walk - till midnight or so) - also head over to nearby Campo dei Fiori where you'll find a smaller vibrant square with many more locals and a different feel that's not to be missed.
The night scene is astonishing in Rome!
This is a very popular tourist area. Restaurants line the perimeter, and the center of the square houses the famous "4 Rivers" Fountain by Bernini, which everyone must see while in Rome. The atmosphere is so stereotypically Italian, it is a great place to walk around and soak in all the history around you.
My favourite place in Rome, so beautiful, great atmosphere. During the days we had the best gelato in the world, at a little cute place that our guide showed us and in the evenings we had great wine and food at our favourite restaurant in Rome, Navona Notte, the pizza was delicious.....can't wait to go back.
The first and last time I was in the Piazza Navona was,I think, in 1976! My heart will never be the same. I ache to be there. I miss it terribly. I only pray that one day I can return. It is my heart's desire!!!
Piazza Navona, is the pulse of Roma. The food the outdoor cafe's, the wonderful musicians, the romance. It is a place to party and it is a place to sit and watch the world go bye. After a long flight across the pond it is a place to adjust to a less complexed lifestyle. The world of art and leisure unfolds before your eyes.
You must have the Tartuffo at Tre Scalini!! Unbelieveable treat. We were at Piazza Navona in the morning, walking on our way from Campo di Fiori to Trevi Fountain, so we missed the the evening excitement.
We just returned from Rome 3 weeks agao. Unfortunately our visit to Piazza Navone was disappointing since the fountain was boarede up under construction. We went in late afternoon and sodas in the square at a hefty price. Perhaps if we had come back at night, it would have been better.
