Piazza Navona, Rome, Province of Rome, 00186

The Basics

With its ornate churches and palaces, lively restaurants, and riot of street vendors and performers, Piazza Navona is one of the most popular public spaces in Rome. Private and hop-on-hop-off tours of Rome’s most famous landmarks generally include a stop in Piazza Navona, as do themed tours of classical Roman or Baroque sights. In addition to this important square, skip-the-line Rome highlights tours may include the Colosseum, Vatican (and Sistine Chapel), and Trevi Fountain. You can opt for a walking or electric bike tour, or see the piazza as part of a food tour that also stops at the Campo de’ Fiori market and cafés and gelato shops.

This was a really excellent tour with Carolina, who was a lovely, knowledgeable and really friendly guide. In the end we were lucky enough to be her only clients on the day so my wife and I had a private tour. Though I’d been to the Colosseum before Carolina really brought it to life and we learned so much we hadn’t known before. Tour also took in the Fora, Pantheon and P. Navona. Thank you Carolina!

Our guide, Alfredo, was wonderful. Thank you, Alfredo!!!!!! There were only eight people in our group and that was the perfect number. However, there is a lot of walking. I knew that ahead of time but didn’t realize just how much until it was my feet doing the walking!!! Be prepared. Bring a bottle of water. There are fountains along the way to refill it.

It is a beautiful walking tour for someone that has not been in Rome before so it would help to get familiar with the city must seen, not recommended if you know your way around

Rome: walking tour Piazza Navona, Spanish Steps, Trevi Fountain, Pantheon
The tour was great. Very informative and our guide was extremely personable and made the overall experience wonderful. All the small bits of knowledge not only about the big monuments, but smaller points throughout the way, really made the city come to life, and are things you would never discover on your own. Absolutely worth the investment. You won’t regret it.

Best of Rome Walking Tour: Pantheon, Piazza Navona, and Trevi Fountain
My husband and I were lucky enough to visit Rome for the 2nd time and were looking up excursions since we’d already done most of the typical tourist destinations. This was the perfect option as we’d walked past many of these sites but didn’t know much about what we’d looked at. Vasco was an amazing tour guide and we learned so much! He is very passionate, knowledgeable and a great time to be around. If you enjoy history I would absolutely recommend this tour, we loved it!!

Our walking tour was excellent as was our guide, Hector. I would highly recommend any tour given by Hector and offered by Viator. We have had several experience with Viator and all have been top notch.

The Oval Square

The oblong-shaped Piazza Navona was built on the site of the ancient Stadium of Domitian, where citizens of Rome would watch games and races in the 1st century AD. The stadium may be gone, but the unusual shape of the space remains today, marked by three Baroque fountains: Bernini’s central masterpiece flanked by two smaller fountains by Giacomo della Porta at each end.
