This is one of the most fascinating squares of central Rome and is where the second act of the opera is set. Here, learn about the history and mysteries of the beautiful Palazzo Farnese, one of the jewels of Renaissance Rome, and of the two twin fountains in the square. Stroll across Piazza Navona with your guide and marvel at Rome's most beautiful monument, the Pantheon.
