The central fountain in Rome's Piazza Navona is undoubtedly one of the most delicate in Italy or even the world. The depiction of four rivers fully reflects Bernini's artistic talent. Another must-see in the Eternal City.

five-minute walk of each other, the
Navona/Pantheon/Campo area may be the prettiest and
most picturesque area of the city. Join the beautiful
throngs hanging out in cafes, boutiques, art
galleries, and wine bars, or peek at a neighbourhood
museum or monument. If you want nonstop movida, the
streets here are busy with chic bicyclists and Vespa
