The piazza is a beautiful Roman square just an alley away from Campo de'Fiori. There are two fountains in the centre created from granite bathtubs. The square took its name from the Rome's largest renaissance palace which is situated here, the Palazzo Farnese.

This restaurant was very good, but none of the dishes were exceptional. The ravioli was a little doughy - the osso buco had a little grizzle. I gave it a 4 star because the service was very good and flavors were very good. It has...More

We stumbled across the Piazza on a Sunday walk. It had outdoor markets, music and was buzzing with locals and tourists x we sat outside having lunch and wine and cocktails x recommend it as somewhere different from usual tourist spots

This is one of the calmer piazzas in Rome with quite a few good options for a meal nearby. There are also beautiful statues in the center and buildings around the edges. A nice place for a walk.

This is a large piazza, home to twin fountains and Palazzo Farnese, which today is home to the French Embassy. Palazzo Farnese is considered one of the most beautiful buildings of Rome. Nice photo opportunities of all while in the Piazza.

Piazza Farnese is a fairly large public square in a lovely part of Rome. There are a couple of nice fountains there and, of course, the French Embassy occupies pride of place, being housed in a beautiful palace which dominates the whole square.

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
