Piazza Navona

The magic of the Lungotevere

>Not far from the Lungotevere is Piazza Navona: one of the city’s more famous attractions. This truly monumental piazza is surrounded by elegant palazzi and hosts three grand fountains: the Fountain of Neptune and the Fountain of the Moor designed by Giacomo della Porta sit at either end, while the great Fountain of Four Rivers, designed by Bernini and built between 1648 and 1651, sits in the centre.

Piazza Navona is, as Piazza di Spagna, one of the most famous piazzas in all of Rome. It is shaped like a sports stadium because, in fact, it was built on the site of what was once the Domitian Stadium, where races and water games were held in ancient times. Piazza Navona is a twenty minute walk from the Hotel Savoy and can also be easily reached by car. Park on the Lungotevere near the Umberto I bridge and walk the 300 metres to the piazza. The sunset over the Lungotevere, and its special atmosphere at night, is sheer magic, truly unique.
