Piazza Navona, the famous square in Rome, began its existence as an ancient Roman stadium. Even today, its heritage is recognizable in its stadium shape.
The most prominent feature of the baroque square is definitely the Fountain of the Four Rivers (Nile, Danube, the Ganges and Río de la Plata) by Bernini. There are two more fountains situated in Piazza Navona – Fountain of Neptune and Fontana del Moro.
Piazza Navona appears in Dan Brown's novel Angels & Demons. Even the film adaptation was partially filmed there.
There are many restaurants serving traditional Italian food situated either in the square or nearby. Also, it is the traditional location of the Christmas markets.
