One of the most famous and sumptuous squares in Rome, Piazza Navona is home to the Baroque Church of Sant’Agnese in Agone and Palazzo Pamphili, both overlooking Gian Lorenzo Bernini’s famous Fountain of the Four Rivers. Bustling outdoor cafes and rowdy buskers lend a lively air to the otherwise stately square.

(By public bus, many lines stop closer.)
Q:How did Piazza Navona get its name?
A:In ancient times, this elongated space was home to an athletics stadium. While it's not clear how the name evolved, the theory is that in agonis, referring to agonal games, became “Navone.” Eventually, that evolved into “Navona” because of the square’s unusual boat-like shape (navona means “big ship” in Italian.)
Q:When are the best times to visit Piazza Navona?
A:Visit the square in the first hour of sunlight, before tour groups arrive—it's a great time for photographs. Otherwise, grab a drink for aperitivo hour at one of the many buzzy bars. Piazza Navona hosts a seasonal Christmas market and an annual appearance by the Befana—Italy’s Christmas witch—on January 6.
Q:Is Piazza Navona safe?
A:Yes. You’re unlikely to encounter any problems, day or night. That said, the piazza gets crowded, and pickpockets are a major nuisance in Rome’s city center. Keep purses zipped and close to your body, and keep an eye on valuables such as mobile phones and wallets.
