While doing the 3-hour guided Rome walking tour in the evening, don’t forget to visit the Rome Piazza Navona because it is counted as one of the most famous and admired squares present at the center of Rome. It was designed by Bernini in the 17th Century. Some of the Rome fountains that reside in this place must be viewed in the evening. These fountains include the fountains of Neptune and the Fountains of four rivers.
This Fountain depicts the Gods of the four great rivers present on the four continents. The Piazza Navona has three famous fountains, including Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi, Fontana del Moro, and Fontana di Nettuno. With its attractive fountains and brilliant staff of street artists and tourists, Piazza Navona is Rome’s graceful showcase square.
The fountain of the four rivers symbolizes four rivers that are present on different continents. These rivers and continents include the Danube in Europe, the Río de la Plata in the Americas, the Ganges in Asia, and the Nile in Egypt, respectively. The construction of this fountain started in 1647, and the masterpiece was finished in 1651.
The materials used in the construction of this river include Travertine, Marble, Granite, and Bronze and the water source of this fountain is Acquedotto Vergine (Virgo Aqueduct). Isn’t it Amazing, Right?. This fountain was one of his most impressive works of that time until now.
It was built in the 1st century AD as an open public space in Rome. Piazza Navona was mainly used to hold contests for athletes and gladiator shows, known as Circus Agonalis. And at that time, this was the only masonry stadium present in Rome.
Piazza Navona has 3 central fountains; the most famous one is Fontana Dei Quattro Fiumi’ which is present in its center and was made by Gian Lorenzo Bernini. So if you do not have much time to see all three rivers, you can only visit this river.
