With incredibly talented graffiti artists, gifted yet hugely unrewarded local musicians, levitating saints from an exotic land (who are invariably trying to dupe you) and art experts willing to create your personal caricatures for a small price, the Piazza Navona is like a party sans the finery and expensive attires. Three elaborate, beautiful fountains adorn Rome's most popular public square. And so do the many cafes and baroque mansions bordering the same. Go early in the evening and spend a few happy hours. Getting there: The Piazza Navona is 450 metres from the Pantheon so it is advisable you see both on the same day. You could take a bus from the Termini station or hop on to the metro. Tickets come for about 1.5 Euros and can be bought from the several machines or ticketing counters at the station. Your stop is 'Spagna' along the A Line and the Piazza is a bit of a walk, about 1.5 kilometres from the station. Watch out for the pickpockets on the train.
Eva Polino
Another open space where the ancient Romans assimilated to watch games and get some entertainment. Today holding three magnificent fountains and a beautiful church, this square is considered to be one of the best in Rome. A major highlight here is the Fountain of Four Rivers (mentioned in Dan Brown's Angels and Demons) designed by Bernini. This fountain has a statue signifying the four major rivers, Danube, Ganges, Nile and Rio De La Plata.

Sergio Grom
This is a world famous city square, usually crowded, yet one of the most picturesque parts of the city. Made on the site of the Stadium of Domitian, Piazza Navona encompasses three fountains, namely the Fount of the Four Rivers, Neptune Fountain, and the Moor Fountain. It is also a favourite tourist spot for its street culture and the little cafe outlets in the alleys and cobbled lanes that stream out of this Piazza.
Maria Rosaria Moscato
Another Roman structure, it has now been refashioned as a city square with Baroque Roman architecture. It was originally built as a stadium where the Romans used to come to watch games.
Maria Rosaria Moscato
This city square was made on the site of the Stadium of Domitian and houses three fountains: The Fount of the Four Rivers, Neptune Fountain, and the Moor Fountain.

Go to Piazza Navona, where you’ll find giant frittelle doughnuts and Sicilian puppets that make special presents. Visit the fashionable thoroughfare of Via Condotti, studded with high-end boutiques like Gucci, Celine, Dior and Ferragamo. If you’ve got old souls on your gift list, the nearby Via Margutta and Via del Babuino are known for their antiques.
