Unfortunately, this sight/site is located in a rather dodgy area, which spoils the visit, however we had a quick look and moved on. Worth a visit shame about the neighbourhood.

Besides being in a dirty parc with homeless people and strange eyes looking at your every move we couldn't see more because we just wanted out of there. This is a part of Rome I would not want to see ever.

Navona / Pantheon / Campo de’ Fiori
With three of Rome’s most beloved piazzas within a
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
